Why Not Try to DIY? Christmas Gift Edition

It's that time in December when panic starts to set in. If you're going to make any presents, then it's time to start if you want to avoid a last minute rush. Still looking for inspiration? Here's my round up of some DIY tutorials from around the web that I think would make great Christmas presents.
Clockwise from the top:

Perspex Clutch: Such a simple idea, but it looks positively high - end. Find the tutorial at Stripes & Sequins.
Ombre Clothespin Magnets: These are so pretty, and would make a small, yet thoughtful gift for the note maker in your life. Find the tutorial at Studs & Pearls.
No-Knit Scarf: Want to knit someone a warm, cosy scarf to keep them warm throughout the winter, but don't have the time or patience to? Yep, same here, which is why I love the idea of this no-knit scarf. I think it would look great in a darker colour or a shorter length for a man's snood too.
Animal Collar Tips: These are adorable! Whilst I am going to be selfish and make a pair for ME, they would also make a great gift for fashion forward teens. Find the tutorial here at Minted Strawberry.
Speckled Beanie Hat: Getting a homemade knit is lovely - it's like getting a hug from a friend. This hat is a beauty - find the free pattern at frolic!.
Leather Journal: Want to make a gift that you know will be loved and used? This leather journal would make anybody happy.
Kaleidoscope: Nope, I've never thought of making a kaleidoscope either, but this tutorial makes it look totally do-able. This would be great for children - you could personalise it by using beads of their favourite colours.

Are you making any Christmas presents for anyone this year?
