Holiday Gift Giving Made Easy

The holiday season brings holiday cheer, tasty treats and time for us to thank those we love. However, we don’t always need to purchase a gift for our loved ones.

The holiday season brings holiday cheer, tasty treats and time for us to thank those we love. However, we don’t always need to purchase a gift for our loved ones.

One way to save yourself a few dollars is by making homemade gifts. These homemade gifts can range from crafts such as photo frames and blankets to jarred mixes and soups. These homemade gifts tend to be more meaningful, original and less expensive. 

We have many recipes we’ve tested for you to consider giving. Consider creating a gift basket full of goodies, homemade coupons for the children, recipe booklets, homemade calendars and more. Spread the joy and thanks this holiday season while saving a few dollars.

The instructions, including gift tags, are available with these do-it-yourself gift mix handouts.
