cook booksTeens are among the hardest people to shop for. If you plan on making the gifts yourself, you've got double the challenge. Knowing your teen and their personality should help you come up with a creative personal DIY gift. If you're feeling lost, take a project from this list of homemade gifts for the teen in your life or let it inspire some of your own ideas.

I plan on making a recipe book for my brother. It's perfect for that young adult who is on their own for the first time. You remember the mac and cheese diet. It can only be sustained for so long. I'll put together some quick and simple favorite recipes. They suggest putting them in a scrapbook or binder, but I think I'll laminate and bind it so that he can have it on the kitchen counter without getting it too messy.

Teens and twenty somethings (I guess I am 20 something, but the younger twenty somethings) are a mystery on their own, shopping for them can be near impossible. Make them a gift that is original, personal and lasting.
