Whether we give a gift or get one, presents always result in lots of smiles. December is certainly the big gifting month, but with the clever tools and ideas we've packed inside this month's Celebrate Crate, we'll have you giving gifts long after Santa and crew head back to the North Pole.
The Gift Giving crate is inspired by the notion that a little extra thought, a crafty detail or a personalized embellishment added to a gift can go a long way in making someone smile extra widely. With the clever tools we've collected, we'll show you how to stitch some love onto your gift wrap, cards and tags to add that extra something into every gift you give.
Click on through our gallery for a closer look at all the projects we completed and get a glimpse into the fun that awaits once you've got your crate in hand!

What can you make with a roll of twine and a sew easy piercer tool and mat? Turns out, the possibilities are endless! But, this month, we're focusing our crafty content on the gift giving theme.
Even the littlest boxes are made cuter with some stitched wrapping. Get the easy how-to so you can recreate this look for the holidays.
To mimic the ribbon wrap on a holiday gift, we skipped the scissors in favor of a rip and sponge dip process. This gave the present a more handmade touch and the ribbon a more interesting edging.
This stitch technique works on all sorts of packages - with a little measuring and a bit of patience, you can wrap any shape or form with a stylish stitch!
Top your presents with a DIY paper bow to finish off your look. Or, if you'd like, get inspired by our idea to make really large bows and use them throughout your home for festive holiday decor on a budget!
Don't forget - holiday packages aren't complete without a gift tag. But don't just smack a sticker with your recipient's name on all that gorgeous wrapping you did! Add a matching stitch to your tags, too.
Take it even one step further and craft a holiday card that's sure to be one-of-a-kind and stand out from the rest of the pile. We stitched all sorts of materials to our white cards for a retro look that's stylish and seasonal!
