When challenged to make enough gifts for everyone at the holidays, the DIY'er thrives. If you can't match the sentiment of a hand-knitted scarf or intricately embroidered blanket, help your hands-on friends finesse their craft with these ideas, from canning supplies for your avid gardener and patterns that use your sewer's scraps to printable paper toys for the mechanically-inclined and artisan-made tools for the woodworker in the family.
Who knows? Maybe next year you'll reap the benefits.
And don't miss the rest of our Green Gift Guide 2009: Have a Slow Holiday. --Produced by Mairi Beautyman
