Hard to believe in just a few short weeks Christmas will be here.  Seems like it wasn’t all that long ago since the last Christmas.  If you are anything like me, then you like making Christmas gifts for certain friends and family.

While I tend to leave many thing to the last minute – making Christmas gifts isn’t something I can.

Here are some DIY creative Christmas gift ideas.

Zippered Pouch

I had a friend make me a zipped pouch similar to this one.  I love that thing! It is the perfect size to stick some cosmetics into if I need to bring some with me somewhere or put some important keepsakes that are smaller, but there isn’t another place to keep them.

Handmade Soap
