It's a horrible, windy day in sunny SA and I don't even want to venture outside to hang my washing. Well, more time to think up crafts.
I give SMALL, homemade pressies but I divide them into 4 categories -
1. Family - this I plan individually according to different tastes and needs.
2. Good friend pressies - these are my faves. I really try to give something special and handmade because
I know all of them will become cherished possessions.
3. Neighbor gifts - I have already shared the 2012 version of this yesterday. If you missed it just scroll down
or get it from the archives in the right hand column. For this I do something useful and universal.
4. Older people gifts - these goes to people who are in old age homes or are struggling financially.
Normally I give something like home baked cookies, a jar of newly made jam nicely packed.
