Do It Yourself Gift Ideas…

It’s time to start thinking about the “smaller gifts”….you know what I mean, the kid’s teachers, Sunday School teachers, neighbors, the mailman, aunts, uncles, etc.

I know someone who leaves their garbage man a cooler with sodas in it EACH WEEK!  The garbage man, in turn, brings her cooler and trash cans up to the house for her!  (That’s love, people.)

Well, in case you need any ideas, here are a few!  Don’t be afraid to “change things up”!  Use old pickle jars, spaghetti jars, whatever you can find will work beautifully!   Even if you just layer nuts, chocolate chips, and marshmallows, put a bow around it and label it “Trail Mix”… really is the fact that you THOUGHT about them that makes it special.

Here’s to showing lots of LOVE this year.  🙂
