Handmade Christmas Gifting

I love Christmas.  Sometimes I go a little insane, though, because I love giving as many handmade Christmas gifts as I can.  For me, gift giving and handmade go together like peanut butter and jelly.  They’re great by themselves but together they’re amazing.  If you’re in the mood for a little Christmas handmade gift giving this year, here are some ideas you won’t want to miss!

    Great ideas, Jen! I will definitely be revisiting them soon.
    Have you tried that cocoa recipe yourself yet? The only one I have made myself turned out not very chocolaty and have been looking for a better recipe since the instant versions have sooo much sugar!

      I haven’t actually tried it yet, Heather. If you do, let me know how it turns out!
