This holiday season I’ve decided to try my hand at making home made gifts for friends and family. Crafty gifts are always fun to give and receive, because they can be tailored specifically for each person. Plus, making presents by hand means that I will be able to afford to give presents to more people in my life, including co-workers, teachers etc. Here’s a list of some unique and beautiful gifts that aren’t too complicated to make at home.
These Herb Candles have a subtle, lovely scent. You can decorate the holders to match the herbs and style of the person you are making them for.
