I am working hard this season to craft gifts for Christmas. I’ve been knitting while I nurse the little one, sewing during naptime, and cutting pieces during the evening hours. A few stitches here, a few buttons there, it’s all slowly coming together.
We’re making a point to give mostly handmade, locally-produced, or thrifted items this year. This requires some planning and the dedication of more time than usual, but the results have been fabulous. I feel like our gifts this year are truly special! Giving handmade also allows us to skip much of the mass consumer hysteria of the holidays, which is definitely an added bonus both for our wallets and our mental health.
After the gifts have been given, I’ll put together a post and share our handmade presents. Until then, these items are under wraps!
