Gift giving season is upon us and I can honestly say that as I get older, I really could care less if I got a single thing for my birthday. Or even our wedding anniversary. Cards are great, a phone call or text, maybe even eating at a nice restaurant — that’s all I really want. But Christmas……there’s something about gifts that gets me all excited. Maybe it’s the kid in me that loves the anticipation of the season! I do love unwrapping gifts and seeing the thought someone put into a gift for me or our family but not nearly as much as I like watching my kids and husband open their presents on Christmas morning. And I also really enjoy making and delivering gifts to family and close friends. I never seem to have enough time or supplies for every single person on my list…..but I sure like to try!
Maybe you’re the same way? Then you’re going to LOVE these ideas……and will feel super proud to give these really clever and beautiful handmade gift ideas!!
