  • I love making homemade gifts! I use lavender and roses to make dried bouquets, rice packs, mixes in a jar, I love putting together gift baskets, blankets, clothes...the list goes on there are so many things you can make at home that cost very little. It makes it so much easier during holidays or other events when your short on money.

  • Yes I like making homemade gifts. I especially love doing food gifts, like cocoa mixes, bread mixes, even soup mixes, in a pretty glass jar with ribbon decorations on it. Another thing i like to do is take a nice photo of my kids, buy a white wood picture frame, and let the kids paint and decorate the frame to send to Grandma and Nannie. They always love it.

  • I love gift baskets. My sister loves Victoria's Secret, so I would go in every few weeks and just check out what they have on clearance/sale. By the time it was Christmas I had a ton of stuff to put in a basket... I have an awesome dollar store by me that has really cute baskets! Get some pink and black tissue paper and the gift basket plastic cover (also @ the dollar store) and Wah-La you have a super cute basket that didnt cost very much with your personal touch added to it!
    Ive also done that for wedding showers (cook books w/ the ingredients for my fave dishes) and Baby showers.

  • Yes. I make homemade gifts, I prefer them then really expensive gifts. I normally make something that is practical like food. Breads, hot chocolate, etc.
