I always have the best of intentions to get all of my holiday shopping done early. It rarely ever happens. Between work, family, friends, and many other obligations, buying presents can get pushed to the back burner. Or, I rack my brain trying to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything and end up rushing around at the last minute to find them something.
No matter how it happens, I usually end up needing to figure out Christmas presents at the last minute for a few people. When I compound that with trying to live within a budget, I often look to something that I can create. If you are having the same experience this year, try some of these ideas.
