Post Series: 2014 Holiday Gift Guides
The do-it-yourselfer – we all know them and, admittedly, I am one of them. There’s just something about being able to look around your home and say, “I did that. I made that!” It elicits a sense of pride and ownership that beats that of just about any store-bought item. But, what do you get for the person who makes everything? Good question!

Here’s a list of gifts that sure to inspire any DIY lover! Whether they like to fix up their home, craft away their weekends or use their green thumb, I’ve got ideas for all of them. And the best part? They’re all under $50!

Spray Paint Grip

Looking for something extra to throw into a stocking or a gift box? Try a spray paint grip. It attaches to the spray can and works as a trigger.

That’s right; Wool and the Gang will send the yarn, pattern and needles needed for the project. Prices vary, but this TAU ZION LION hat is only $44.

Darby Smart
