Awesome 2 Hour Gifts to Make for Women

I'm always looking for handmade gifts to make. Period. I just like making things.

So here is a round up of more quick (2 hours or less) things to make for women for Christmas.

We all have technology toys, right?  30 Minute Crafts shows how to make a protective sleeve for whatever device you own.

On the Go Reading Pillow is brilliant by The Polka Dot Chair. You could make the pillow and throw in some magazines or a book. Beautiful. I'm so making one of these... for ME. :)

Gingercake has a tutorial for making these cute and easy oven mitts! Now this is something everyone needs. Right?

The Happier Homemaker shows how to make a DIY Handmade Soap Dispenser from a Mason Jar.

Hey Gorgeous Events made these sweet candles. They are so delicate.

A Ditchin Time shows how to make a car trash bag...

Everything Etsy painted some utensils for the kitchen. Pretty.

This monogrammed candle is sweet. Darling. Pottery Barn knock off.

Diary of a CopyCat has an Anthro copy of a Mason Jar Sewing Kit. DARLING!!

Second Story Sewing made a DIY emergency medical kit...

How About Orange has some cute pouches that would make perfect gifts. Cute fabrics.

I've gotten so many more ideas of things to make while researching this post. Of course, I want to make all of the above. :)

With love during the holidays,
