Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!

We’re kicking off our Holiday 2011 coverage here on Makezine this week. We wanted to do things a little differently this year (every whizzing electron in cyberspace has a gift guide these days), so we’re looking at gift exchange through several different lenses.

Starting off with a timed acceleration toward infinity goodness, we’re launching the Make: Gift Singularity. Between now and Christmas, we’ll be presenting gift project ideas that you can build given the time available. So, projects that take longer will be posted first, giving you enough time to make and gift them to your intended, followed by increasingly easier/quicker projects.

We hope you’ll follow along with us, either doing some of the projects or telling us about one of the homemade gifts that you’re working on. In this depressed economic climate, there seems to be an increased interest this year in supporting small and home businesses, and in making things yourself. We’d love to see what you come up with. Or just post ideas you have for things you could build and give.

And stay tuned for other fun holiday happenings, including a gift giveaway series you’re not going to believe.
