The only thing I love more than recieving gifts is giving them. Seriously, it’s the best feeling when you can make someone you love happy. And, since it’s the most wonderful time of year, we’ve rounded up the best DIY gifts that your best friend will actually want. Even better, you can whip them up fairly quickly, without breaking the bank.

Everyone loves some fun room decor! Spell out your bestie’s name, her initials or Greek letters with these fun pom poms.
3. Printed Candles
Print your best friend’s favorite inspirational quote or celeb on a candle that she can burn, baby, burn! You can really put anything you want on these adorable candles.
