Everyone loves at little gift made by you. You may have a great family recipe (like my chocolate sauce) or a holiday cookie that you love to make. I learned to make candles (very easy). You can get supplies at CANDLE SCIENCE - they have excellent tutorials to walk you through the process and everything you need. (most craft store like Michael's also sell candle making kits). Making a candle takes about 15 minutes - FYI.
This year's favorite are my winter sachets -they smell amazing. I gave them out alone and also tied them onto gifts. I mixed sage, rosemary, cloves, black peppercorns, cedar, pine needles and cinnamon sticks - put them in little mesh bags and tied bows on them. Labels for all of your projects can be customized and printed at home using AVERY.
