No matter where your skills (or lack of) lie, there's a DIY category for you. From crafting and building to biking and gardening, putting your own two hands to work is a rewarding way to save money and trim your carbon footprint.
An added bonus: Taking the time to make something by hand gives you an escape from routine -- and a sense of accomplishment -- that's priceless. Encourage your friends' and family's inner DIY'er with these eco-friendly gifts.
