The season of love, giving, and unadulterated stress is upon us. You empty out your wallet and watch as the last piece of lint drift to the floor like a snowflake. In the background you can hear Bing Crosby crooning Christmas tunes, but there is no joy to be had in the land of poor college students and post-grads.

Before you sink to the floor with a notepad, tissues, and possibly some Kahlüa to figure out how you're going to buy Tiny Tim that gift, check out this round up of D.I.Y. gifts  found on Pinterest. None of the projects will land you in the holiday poor house. Plus, all of the crafting you'll be doing will go really well with Christmas re-runs and your electric band saw-if you don't have a band saw just substitute it with more Kahlüa.
