The last few years, Christmas has just seemed so overwhelming and commercial. Have you felt that, or is it just me?
My boys are teenagers now and the items on their wishlist get smaller but more expensive. Mostly things that have to do with technology.
I would like to have a Christmas where everyone makes things for each other and a commercialized holiday turns to more of a thoughtful holiday.
So today, I am going to search the web and bring you some fun, thoughtful ideas for gifts you can give to your family. They may not cost alot, but they take time and effort to make. By starting early, you have time to put thought instead of just money into your gifts.
I have broken this post into two pages to make it easier to read.
