I've been looking forward to this series all year - welcome to Festive Friday!
I'm definitely reaching a point where shopping in my pajamas is more fun than battling the crowds, and thankfully the internet is being very accommodating. On my cyber journey, I've gathered tutorials, recipes and handmade gifts to help you with your holiday giving and making. This week I'm calling it Gifts for Her, although many of these would be great for anyone. You'll find that will be the same with the following weeks as well. You're creative with your crafting so don't be afraid to be creative with giving as well!

I love the uniqueness of this bag from Burda Style. You could recycle an old bag or try out the faux suede that you can find in just about any color now. This seems like a great gift for a teen.
I'm going to guess, based on a recent shopping trip, that fashion is currently a tactile experience. So many things have embroidery, are made from velvet or have a unique texture. This infinity scarf from Aesthetic Nest covers all the bases with its fur outside and satin inside.
Do you know someone anxious to get into the crafting game, but doesn't know where to start? This hobby kit from Swoodson Says is the perfect gift. You could even alter the contents to fit just about any craft you'd like.
Have you walked down the fleece aisle at the fabric store lately? You can find a print to match almost any fandom, obsession or just ordinary like that you can imagine. It only takes a small piece to make this headband from Mary Martha Mama, so you can make her several - one for every mood!
When I saw this accordion pouch from Sew4Home, I immediately thought about how great it would be for travel. If you know someone who's always on the go, this would be perfect for jewelry, makeup, lingerie or maybe her traveling crafts.
I saw a top that looked exactly like this one on my shopping trip, and I almost bought it, but I though it would be pretty easy to make. I was right, and Merrick's Art will show you how. You can make these for everyone you know and never have to repeat a color.
I almost feel like the photo is enough here, but I'll add that the recipe for these adorably giftable meringues comes from Make Bake Celebrate.
These festive truffles from If You Give a Blonde a Kitchen are easy to make, and who doesn't like sugar cookies?
This sangria kit from Fantabulosity is a fun gift, especially for a hostess, and isn't it gorgeous?
These adorable necklaces from CaitlynMinimalist make me want to go dig through a few boxes and see if I can find some kid art. She can also make a necklace using a loved one's handwriting. I love these!
Not only do I love the fact that Napauncorked is recycling wine bottles for the candle container, they have a great selection of wine and cocktail scents for them. The hardest part is choosing. Pina colada? Amaretto? Merlot?
Fingerless gloves are a great compromise in the winter when your need to keep warm bumps up against your need to use your fingers. This pair from LoveFuzz is especially beautiful with the added embroidery.
