Two Homemade gifts that will be a hit this Christmas

My family has always preferred homemade gifts and cards. It takes a lot more effort to make something thoughtful, than to whip out the credit card. Of course not everyone has the time or the creative ability but for those of you who do, here are two simple to make gift suggestions that will be a hit with family and friends.

The first one I love making are Mason Jar Terrariums that you can design to suit the decor of the recipient. If they live near the beach you can use sand and shells and small bits of drift wood. If they have a modern home you can use stark white pebbles. Your only limit is your imagination. The large jars you will need can be purchased cheaply at The Warehouse or you can reuse your old pickle jars.

The next idea I have for you also uses a jar and is very attractive and easy to make. All you need to do is carefully layer the ingredients for cookies inside a jar and then attach the recipe and decorate the jar. All the recipient needs to do is to add milk, butter or eggs.Everything else is provided.For 25 Mason Jar cookie recipes click here.

If you agree with me that’s nice but what I really want to achieve is to make you question the status quo. Look between the lines, do your own research. Do not be a passive observer in this game we call life.
