Made+Remade Holiday Gift Guide

Treat the DIY junkie in your life—or yourself—to an awesome maker gift this holiday.

Part of the appeal of a DIY gift is it is truly a gift that keeps on giving. Long after the thrill of unwrapping a project or activity-related gift comes the real fun of whipping up some homemade sauerkraut or trekking through the snow in your new snow shoes.
