It's a year where something handmade means more than ever as many of us are observing social distancing, even with family. Being frugal is a great motivator, but perhaps the best motivator is that you are creating either a future heirloom or filling a holiday need like the hot cocoa mix and practical jars above.

Theme gifts are a blast. Consider picking one element and making everything built from it.


Ginger - ginger ale, ginger tea, ginger cookies, ginger room spray, ginger bath oil

Tea - tea mixes, tea ball, antique tea cup and saucer, British biscuit assortment in a tin, lemon curd in a jar

Chocolate - chocolate body cream, hot chocolate mix, chocolate cookies, chocolate covered cranberries

Dare to Dream - lottery tickets and a bag of fortune cookies

Tis the season to consider individuals and what makes them quirky and unique. Honor the inner geek!
