Although Christmastime isn’t solely about gifts, I know that in North America, they do play an integral role. Gift-giving can get incredibly expensive, incredibly fast. This only adds to a person’s stress level at Christmas. My solution? To make your own gifts! I’m not implying that you should make all of them, but there is usually a certain someone (or two) who would cherish a handmade rather than store-bought present.

So if your family is as big as mine, or even if it isn’t, or if you’d like to do something a little different for Secret Santa this year, why not make your own gift? (And then post a link in the ‘Hello Comments’ below!)
Next week I will have another Make Your Own … This time, for the food enthusiasts in your family!
