Boy, have I got something awesome in store for you today! I know you may not even know what you’ll be for Halloween yet, but maybe you’re already looking ahead (and sweating ahead) for what could be the ultimate stressful time of the year – holiday gift giving. Well, you’re in for a treat then, my friends! Here’s a roundup of over 30 Wooden Handmade Gift Ideas.
And this is all part of
The Ultimate Library of Handmade Gifts
a collection brought to you by my favorite bloggers just in time for the holidays. The answer to your wildest dreams, and/or nightmares. You know how everyone says they have “something for everyone on your list”? With over 200 handmade gift ideas, I hope that you really do find the perfect gift, or last inspiration, for everyone on your list. My contribution to this list of all lists are handmade gifts from wood. I love the versatility of wood, how it can look handmade or store-bought, even if it was all done by hand. It can be fun, modern, vintage, and customized for the pickiest recipient! Let’s dive right in!

Slice and Dice
It’s pretty amazing what you can do with a slice of wood. I mean, it’s like having a blank canvas to work with. I’d even make an analogy to a blank sheet of paper…if they weren’t pretty much already the same thing… Annnnyways, here are some grrreat ideas!

‘Tis the Season

When all else fails, a wood sign with a favorite quote or scripture or verse from a song always always works. I always tell myself I don’t NEED a wood sign around the house, but then, I’m ALWAYS tempted to buy the “Beach, this way ->” sign or some other “reminds me of vacation” sign at the county fair. Someday, I will make one, when I can decide what I want to put on it.
