Have a crafty Christmas!

               ‘Tis the season to be jolly! These words spark joyous moments as people prepare for Christmas, one of the most beloved holidays. This is the season where you can genuinely feel that everyone is full of joy as family and friends strengthen their bonds. Let’s not also forget that there are presents! PRESENTS!!! We never stray away from the meaning of Christmas as you share memories with your loved ones, but presents are definitely something we look forward to every year!

                It is always nice to receive gifts, but definitely giving them is more fun! It is like a little scavenger hunt you go on. You go on the search to find out what your loved ones love and want. You start with asking little questions acting inconspicuous as possible. You then proceed to find their gifts in stores. There’s no greater feeling than knowing you gave people what they truly like.

                Buying presents can get extremely pricey, especially if you have numerous people on your list. Therefore, this year you should definitely think of a craftier angle. Making presents is just as fun and may cost way less than buying stuff.

                Again, you first research what your friends and family likes. Do they love certain colors? Do they love home décor, bath goods, phone accessories, etc.? You could also think of things they may not have at
