Christmas Gifts…Homemade

 

Homemade Gifts are one of a kind, they are unique, they are heart felt. I love making hand made gifts. So I thought that I’d send you a few examples of gifts that you could make; for your husband, wife, mom, dad, kids, uncle, aunt, inlaws, etc. Enjoy.

Hot Chocolate is SO yummy. Well, chocolate in any form is yummy. But these spoons are so easy to make and they are easy.

And here’s a link to the hot chocolate in that cup, it’s called “Spiked Mexican Hot Chocolate”. There are other types of hot chocolate on there too, who knew there were so many, oh can my palate handle them all? Chocolate is an AMAZINGLY wonderful beautiful thing, I am so happy it was created!!! ❤

3. Ribbon Embellished Notebooks

Do you have extra scraps of ribbon lying around? Don’t let them go to waste. Use them to liven up a simple spiral bound journal from the dollar store. I know that the picture displayed is not the same as the one in the link below but it gives you an idea what you can make. And this is a holiday one. These can easily be made for tween girls, teens, moms, aunts, grandmothers, sisters or even as last minute teacher gifts.

I made one of these for my mother in law last Christmas, for her stocking. It was so easy to make and just so cute. These can be made for teachers, neighbors, friends, etc…. Enjoy making this and it’s a must that you listen to the song while creating them.

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

Make sure you have lots of fun and listen to a Pandora christmas music station, drink hot cocoa and eat a candy cane. Enjoy and be creative!!!!!
