Each year in November my Super Blog Buddy Sarah asks me this question:
“So what are you making this year for Christmas?”
And usually in November I have an answer. My husband has a large family and we have never managed to get that whole draw names thing to work, so we have learned to get creative in our gift giving. Here is a list of some of the items we have made in the past:
- Photo calendars- We did this one for several years
- Custom t-shirts- With a saying that the entire family knew
- Coasters- Personalized for each family
- Loteria mirrors
- Photo CD’s
I used the hem of the t-shirt and some antique buttons from my great-grandmother to make a flower pin that can be worn separately as well. I’m really pleased with the way they turned out and hope they like them.
Here’s a question for our readers- are you making any gifts this year? If so, what are you making? I may need some ideas for next year.
