10 FREE (but Thoughtful) Christmas Gift Ideas

Family Balance Sheet

My aunt gifts her nieces and nephews with loaves of homemade cinnamon bread every Christmas. Are you a knitter, crafter or do you know how to use a sewing machine? Maybe you are a crafter/knitter/crocheter with a stash of supplies? Gifts must be expensive and store bought—-SAID NO ONE, EVER! There’s outside pressure during Christmas to spend lavishly only to have the recipient not really like the gift or even use it.

Sustainable Gift Giving this Holiday Season

Prairie Eco-Thrifter

My son was delighted with the used sewing machine my mother bought for him. My sister-in-law routinely gives items that she crochets. From photography to woodworking to painting to sewing, you can use your talents to create personal and unique gifts. We found a toy car made from recycled materials for my young nephew, and I once received a journal made with recycled paper.
