It's hard to believe Christmas is less than a couple weeks away! If you haven't even begun to chip away at your gift list yet, don't worry, there's no need to rush over to a jam-packed shopping center. Rather than spending hours trolling the aisles for store-packaged gifts, make those presents yourself! Not only will you save money and resources, but you'll have a ton of fun getting in touch with your creative side! While at this year's London Design Festival, we hit up 100% Design and spotted their latest book entitled 'Why don't you... [re]design Christmas?' Full of wonderful and easy DIY gift ideas, this book includes cool projects like these colorful sawdust 'Balloon Bowls' by German designer Gitta Gschwendtner. Hit the jump to see even more ideas!

Lizzie Lee’s ‘Sock Aliens’ are fantastic creatures made out of random and previously unloved odd socks.

‘Chestnut Antlers (for Mathilda)’ is a multi-purposed wall hanger that was inspired by a walk in the woods. The piece was designed by Duncan Kramer for his Swedish sustainable fashion designer wife.

Book sculptor Phiona Richards created ‘Filigree Fantasy’, a biodegradable newspaper ornament gift that can be hung from a tree or used to decorate a room.
