If you got a do-it-yourselfer who is also into photography, we think we’ve found something that you might want to get them for the holidays. The Unibind Photobook Creator features about twelve new holiday-themed covers for their photo-binding system, each available for between $4-8 each. The actual Unibind System itself allows one to create a nice hardcover photo book, and includes layout software, a thermal binding machine, and a 3mm linen hardcover, with windowed front. The finished product looks nice and professional.

There are only about 3 weeks left until All Hallows Eve, so if you want to get adventurous this year be sure to check out the Special Halloween Edition from the editors of “Make” and “Craft ” for the holiday. Inside, you’ll learn how to make flaming LED skulls, laser jack-’o-lanterns, and mechanical ghoulies. You can also find makeup and a recipe for blood-spurting wounds as well as DIY coffins, tombstones, and decorations. All this (and a trip or two to Radio Shack) is available for $9.99.

We at Gear Live rarely cater to the craftsy, DIY, “Maker Faire”-types (you know who you are), so here’s a little something for you: The LED Picnic Blanket. It’s a water-resistant blanket that glows with romantic lights, perfect for an evening date with that special someone. Plus, it has a hard center, so that sangria won’t spill all over the grass and ruin the mood. Being more gadgety than craftsy, we wish we could just buy this blanket, but until someone patents it, click below to learn how to make it.
