From my many holidays as a gift-giver, I’ve discovered that it’s best to have a few gifts that are on the ready in case any unexpected visitors pop over. This gift arsenal should have things that are inexpensive and relevant to a broad group of people, yet still personal and thoughtful. A handmade gift is really the way to go here.
I’ve decided to build up my gift reserves for the upcoming month of gifts for teacher, bus drivers, mail carriers and the caroling neighbors who are sure to stop by. These 5 homemade gift projects are simple and fun, and best of all– they won’t break the bank!
