25 Days, 25 Items, $25 {Or Less!}

Happy first day of December my dears! Are you already feelin' the holiday rush? I know I am. We're still concocting our list of Christmas presents for friends and family, and this year we're trying to be as budget-friendly as possible. But what fun is it if I hoard the ideas for myself? (No fun!) So, starting today,  I'm going to do 25 days of 1 item a day that's $25 (or less) that I think would make a fun present.

Ready? Okay.
December 1: The Big-Ass Book of Crafts {$13.57 at Amazon}
by Mark Montano

Because it's a gift that keeps on giving. Maybe you'll even get a craft as a thank-you! :)

From the Publisher:
"The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is packed with ideas for sprucing up your living space; concocting fabulous, all-natural body products; designing your own unique stationery; and creating countless other crafts that will convince your friends and loved ones that you're the secret love child of Martha Stewart (only much, much cooler).

Forget crocheted doilies and itchy knit sweaters — TLC's While You Were Out top designer Mark Montano has created stylish and imaginative projects that range from a Warhol-esque Ultrasuede iPod case to photo-adorned boxer shorts to African mask patio chairs to wooden night-light boxes. Divided into sections that include Outdoorsy (ideas to enhance your backyard), Dishing It Out (decorating plates using different techniques), You've Been Framed (innovative picture framing ideas), and Can I Have a Light? (creating and decorating lamps, lanterns, and chandeliers), it's as entertaining to read as it is endlessly inspiring. With more than one hundred and fifty inventive and fun projects, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts is the perfect activity book for readers of every mood, budget, and skill level.
