Christmas Gifts Ideas made with LOVE


Christmas is a time of giving and often with the rush and urgency of getting things done in time, we forget that sometimes it’s the little things that really matter. Too often people find themselves rushing and buying gifts from department storeswith little thought.

Sometimes if we can just stop or slow down a bit we can put some thought about what we want to give from the heart and making beautiful things with our hands is a wonderful way to say “you are really special to someone”.

Making a gift for someone for Christmas is like bringing together bits and pieces of our lives and telling a story.

Today I’m sharing with some wonderful DIY projects for Christmas gifts.

Don’t forget that you can also find some lovely handmade gifts online from our online store here.
