This week the theme is Holiday tips and I can't wait to read them all. Here what works for my family...
I make most of our gifts for extended family so I begin planning in June. I keep a notebook that I fill with ideas I find online, books, or magazines. I jot down my list of people I need to get gifts for and then look through my notebook to find what would be the best match for that family.
Here is one of my gift baskets that I'm making...
* lap quilt
* gluten free peanut butter cookies
* gluten free fudge
My girls are making air fresheners to put on each basket. We will be making gift baskets for our neighbor, a few friends, my parents, my brother, and small gifts for our coop teachers. I think we'll make a five minute cake mix and include mugs for the coop teachers.
Keeping a holiday notebook of gift ideas works for me
