25 Days Until Christmas Count Down : Day 3
Welcome to my 25 Days of Christmas Project! I will be posting Christmas related themes everyday until Christmas such as recipes, crafts, decor, movies, books, activities, shopping, trends, gift ideas, carols, parties, games, traditions, holiday cards, resolutions, lights, etc.
Day 3 : DIY Christmas Gifts
Now is a good time to start thinking about gifts for others. Today is Sunday December 2, 2012 and if you're like me you have not even begun your Christmas shopping. Today I will be attending one of my daughters' girl scout meetings. I will be teaching the girls to make small candles. They are excited about making the candles to give away as gifts. These are perfect for teachers, grandma, mom, or even to keep for themselves!
There is something special about receiving a handmade gift. Rest assured it will be much appreciated! There are a countless number of gifts you can make yourself to give away as gifts.
Here are some ideas:
*Fudge and/or cookies
*Family pictures put together in a handmade frame
*A pre-made scrap book
*Gifts in a jar (such as layered ingredients with a recipe attached)
There are numerous other ideas and instructions located on the internet, books, and magazines. Here are a few of my favorites that I found online:
~ Hot Cocoa Snowman ~ Thanks Acadiana's Thrifty Mom
~ Cute Candy Gifts ~ Thanks Passion for Savings
~ Vinyl Wall Art ~ Thanks Ask Anna
In conclusion, consider making handmade gifts this year. Especially if you never have before! Your gifts will be sure to impress. Make your plans now and start making those gifts! Don't wait til the last minute. There are only 23 days until Christmas. Make a list of everyone you can make gifts for: teachers, grandparents, neighbors..
