Welcome to December everyone! Although Christmas may seem like a ways off yet it is definitely coming fast and so is gift giving. Ready, get set……..ideas!
Wrap your gifts creatively! Okay, so gift bags are alright, but honestly they just aren’t that creative. One thing I have learned from my mom is to wrap gifts, and with neat wrapping paper too. I can sincerely say that I don’t think my mom has ever given me a gift in a bag, and I have received many, many gifts from her. Mom is a very generous person. Another creative and beautiful way to give a gift is just to put everything together and tie it with some type of twine or jute cord.
Write cards and letters, they can mean so much. Knowing how to write a meaningful, sincere cards is a necessary life skill! Another super cute idea are little note cards with verses on them which you can buy here. They are beautiful.
One thing my sister and I have been into recently is real wax seals! They look very charming and old and are super easy and pretty cheap to do! You can find wax sealing kits on Etsy, Amazon, and just about anywhere else. Actually wax seals have been making me give a lot more cards since I just love to do them!
Native has clean, healthy body wash that smells simply amazing and is such a fun gift to give!
Cappuccino Mix, a recipe from one of our previous posts, makes a wonderful gift!
When giving gifts think about what the recipient enjoys, because while you can’t always give someone exactly what they want, there is something so special about knowing that the giver put time and effort into figuring out what makes you smile.
With all that said, sometimes gifts aren’t necessary at all, often the most important and meaningful thing you can do is just spend time and talk with a friend.
