  • I am going to buy because those stores do employ people that need to get paid and I like to shop also.

  • I am trying to support local companies and small businesses. I prefer natural products for myself and my family now, and I am thinking about making it show through in my purchases this season (for the first time). So while I will still be buying gifts, they will have the advantage of being healthy for the local economy.

  • I think it depends (sorry i hate when people answer that way ;) )...but if the person you're gifting to likes sentimental things, obviously it's better to try to make something meaningful. If it's for someone who would rather have something store bought, then that's more appropriate. Some things you can't make for yourself. And even if you do make things for yourself, you still need to buy supplies, so you're still supporting a store! :)

  • I think home baked goods make the best gifts!..They're personal, from the heart, you can't return or re-gift and in many cases taste ooh so good!! :)
