What to bring to a holiday party? Skip the bottle of wine and tote something handmade instead.  Here, we share five DIY holiday host and hostess gifts, some of which take minutes and others a few hours to pull together. Pick the ambitious projects if you have the energy and desire, or toss some foliage in a ceramic vase and call it good. Time expenditure doesn't buy beauty: we think all five of these gifts are equally charming. Above: This DIY wreath of foraged boxwood and cedar will smell beautiful and add a holiday note to any table, wall, or door. Get the how-to from Gardenista's Erin Boyle in her blog,  Reading My Tea Leaves: Boxwood and Cedar .  Above: Sometimes what's on the outside counts. This petite package from  Reading My Tea Leaves  is made from magazine pages tied with metallic string and adorned with winterberries; ideal for wrapping up Lindt LINDOR Truffles. Above: We're charmed by the simplest holiday arrangements. Allow Remodelista's own Justine Hand of designskool to show you how to recreate the look in 5 Quick Fixes: Pine Branch Holiday Decor .  Above: Did you know that mulling spices are surprisingly simple to make? Find the ingredients and instructions in  Reading My Tea Leaves: Mulling Spices . Above: Are you as entranced by these as we are? If you have some time before your gift is due, try your hand at making bayberry candles, a traditional Cape Cod craft. Read Justine's thorough how-to in The Romance of the Homemade Candle .
