With the rise of YouTube and blogs, do-it-yourself gifts have gained popularity, especially for the holiday season.

But as thoughtful as they are, D.I.Y.’s aren’t always welcome. Not everyone shares an appreciation for jean pocket potholders or crocheted barefoot sandals.

For those who can’t seem to part with the thought of gifting homemade art or their latest macramé creation, AirTalk is here to help D.I.Y.-ers stay on-point for the holidays. Do-it-yourself expert, Kristen Turner, talks with Patt Morrison today about the best and worst D.I.Y. ideas, tips and tricks to get it right and quick and easy last-minute gifts you can make at home.
