Gift Guide: DIY Lover

When it comes to shopping for the do-it-yourself-er on your list, give the gift of endless possibilities. Fill a gift bag or box with the tools she needs to feel confident in all she sets out to make: a book to help her plan her next project, patterned tape and paper supplies to make it happen, a designer bag to cart it in, and even a bottle of pretty nail polish to make DIY manicures a cinch. These gift ideas enable your craft-savvy bestie the chance to shoot for the moon, and to create something beautifully her own along the way.
