Homemade Gifts

Money is tight for most people these days. A great way to save money AND show others you care about them is to MAKE a homemade gift for them. Holidays, birthdays, special occasions…do it homemade. You can make cookies, baking mixes, cards, mini scrapbooks, bread, soap, candles, Christmas ornaments, photo frames, herbed oil, gifts in a jar, knit something, pot holders, jewelry, tye dye, picture calendar, plant a tree, and SO much more!

Homemade gifts are not only easier on the wallet, they show the people you love just how special they are. Time is the greatest gift you can give anyone!

Do you have a frugal tip? PLEASE share! Read how, here.

    I love making gift baskets, filling them with whatever. They can be practical (a friend filled a really cute one with cleaning supplies for my bridal shower…came in handy when we moved into our house!), or fun. And the baskets are great to keep.
