How to Save on Holiday Gifts
This year, in an effort to minimize costs, I am planning an old-fashioned Victorian Christmas! I am making beautiful gifts by hand that I will share with my family. All gifts shall be inspiring, practical or simply delicious. The gifts will include crafted, wooden scripture boxes with handmade laminated scripture cards inside. I also plan on making homemade shea butter lotions with pure essential oils. For my neighbors, I will prepare baked goods. Lastly, I will be reintroducing the fine craft of letter writing by sending Victorian-style holiday correspondence cards (designed using my home computer) to send letters and/or poems to both family and friends, wishing them the very best for a happy and healthy holiday season!
