The Handmade Holiday Gift Idea Swap + a Chance to Win $50 to Jo-Ann!

Now is the perfect time to wrap up some projects to help check off another person from your gift list, and if you are looking for a place to garner some great gift-giving inspiration, the Positively Splendid Handmade Holiday Gift Idea Swap is a great place to start!

Is there a gift you sewed, crafted, baked or DIY’ed in the past that was a hit, or have you already made a gift this year that you are particularly proud of? Throughout November and December, link it up to the Handmade Holiday Gift Idea Swap so that others can try out your best gift-worthy ideas! The idea is to use this as a go-to place for exchanging the best holiday gift ideas, so that by stopping in for a visit, you can find gift ideas for everyone on your list: husbands, parents, grandparents, teachers, neighbors and more!

Here is just a sampling of the great ideas that have been added to the swap so far:

Homemade Bath Salt via Everything Etsy

Kids’ Activity Trays @ The Silly Pearl 

Homemade Hand Warmers @ The Scrap Shoppe

Giveaway Time!

Guess what? Whether you link up your own project or add someone else’s idea to your handmade holiday to-do list, you can be entered to win a $50 gift card to Jo-Ann!

How great is that?

Here’s the scoop for how to enter:

  • Head over to the Handmade Holiday Gift Idea Swap and link up YOUR best projects, and then come back and leave a comment on this post telling me which project(s) you shared. You can receive additional entries for up to FIVE projects you link up, so the more you share, the greater your chances of winning!
