Christmas is almost here, and gifts for family and friends are a top priority for many of us. Issues with the global supply chain have made online and in-store shopping more strained than in years past, putting that much more pressure to get those gifts in time for the holiday. One way to get around that is to make your own gifts! Pallet projects are a popular way to make your own decorations, and the reclaimed wood adds a touch of rustic style that is on-trend and loved by many. If you have spare pallets, these gift ideas might just be right for you.
If you don’t have the skills or time to put projects like this together yourself, we encourage you to purchase from the Etsy shops linked to each photo. These creators are small business owners who could use our support now more than ever.

If there’s anyone on your list who loves hosting (or lacks counter space), they might really appreciate a rustic stove cover. A stove cover can be placed on top of the stove to make a little more room in the kitchen when the stove isn’t in use. If you want to get even more creative, you can also customize your cover with a quote or your giftee’s name!
