  • Take a medium gift box. next take thick string and soak it in glue. different sizes so you can make different shapes. from a circle, square, triangle, etc. let dry unless its fast acting dry. Then take foil and put over the box and string. Now flatten it to show the shapes. You can add paint that adheres to foil or crayons. Put a Ziploc plastic bag inside the box and add a plant. Vines are hearty and can withstand any child's choices as to how to care for that plant until its given to the designated person. It helps them with motor skills, being creative, and about caring for plants! Oh, Did I mention its a lot of fun? LOL

  • My favorite gift this year was a LookBook its like a Kindle, its really great I can buy books on it without ever leaving home and most the time they are cheaper. Plus it comes with about 150 free books, all the classics

  • my favorite gift from girls was hand prints. But for others like grandparents I did make placemats with paper and stickers, dates, and then cover them with pastic and they loved them.

  • I often take my daughters to a pottery painting studio to make homemade gifts. They are always well-received, and they are fun to do. We also like to do needlework on floursack towels or on handkerchiefs.
