Giving handmade Christmas gifts is not only thoughtful, but it’s a wonderful way to express your creativity. Making handmade gifts can also save you some money. And of course, your family and friends will be delighted when they receive their one-of-a-kind presents.
I wish we could put up some of the Christmas spirit in jars and open a jar of it every month. ~ Harlan Miller
