Around here, our holiday shopping and gift planning have taken a back seat to the production of Peter Pan that my eldest daughter is in. This means any gifts we are giving will have to be procured next week, when no sane person wants to be caught dead in any store. This year, we’re keeping the holidays as simple as we can, so I’ll likely be pulling inspiration from this list of free gift ideas, but in case I decide to get crafty with the kids while they are off school, here are some easy DIY gift ideas that little hands can help with.
I love giving gifts. In fact, I love everything about gifting, from choosing something that’s just right for the recipient to coordinating the perfect gift wrap and a card that says exactly what I want it to say. You can imagine that Christmas must be an incredible time for me, and in the past, it has absolutely been an excuse to go overboard. This year, I really want to approach the holidays with absolute mindfulness; no over-spending, no over-indulging. I want to focus on the things that really matter. That’s why this year, we’re giving our loved ones (almost) free holiday gifts.
