My thoughts:

Although I've seen some of these projects that are listed in 25 DIY Christmas Gifts. most are unique to me.  Such useful gifts that I'm sure everyone who receives them will enjoy them!

There is a wide variety of projects so you'll find one that fits your skill level.  I don't think I would have a hard time completing any of them, except one (I don't know how to knit). Each project has a material list and exact instructions on how to complete it. 

These are wonderful and I want to make some for next Christmas.  I plan on being a little more prepared next year and I can't wait to get started with this book.  

I downloaded this book free last week but it's definitely worth the price of .99.
