 Making Holiday Gifts

"The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious." ~Martin Luther

Watch as their eyes light up with joy when you present a really special gift you've made just for them!
By Natalya Buckel 

There is a reason many people love receiving handmade gifts during the holiday season.  When you put time and effort into a gift, the recipient feels appreciated and valued.  For example, a couple of Christmases ago, a friend gave me a gingerbread body scrub she'd made.  Not only did it smell divine, I thought of her every time I used it!  It was honestly one of my favorite presents that year.  

There is something about the personal touch that makes a gift truly special.  So whether you're puzzling over what to give someone who already has it all or you just want to show your love with a thoughtful present, handmade gifts have the ability to remind us of the true nature of the holiday gift giving season. They are even a great way to save a little money this holiday season.

If you need a little help creating a one-of-a-kind present for someone special, then be sure to register for our Make Holiday Gifts with Essential Oils class this Saturday December 3 from 1-3 at Leigh Farm Park.
