How can you detach Christmas and the spirit of giving from the crass commercialism that has taken over the holiest of holidays? Surely there must be some way to get around the impulse to buy plasma screen TVs and GameBoy 3000Xs or whatever!

Well, if you have the right mindset and the right loved ones, you can always try to make the gifts yourself! Sure, there will be some buying involved - you can't just up-cycle the stuff you found at your house, not unless you're some sort of an artist! But buying material to make gifts is still better than just grabbing whatever is discounted and hoping for the best. So here are some good DIY ideas for gift giving!
