Starting Christmas gifts early this year

This year I decided to give  gifts from the heart for Christmas. We spend so much money on store bought gifts that get thrown in a closet or forgotten. Think back over your past Christmases,how many gifts can you remember? Now think about gifts that were made with love for you. Those are the ones that stay with us thru the years.
Today I started my gift giving  task with dehydrating lemons and oranges for my Simmering Potpourri . While they dehydrate I am cutting strips for rugs.  I am hoping to have several different gifts to give . The big test will be to  get every thing done in time for Christmas.

This is a list of a few of the gifts I am planning to make.

1. Simmering Potpourri
2. Fabric rug
3. Homemade goats milk soap
4. Aprons
5. Needle work sheet set.
6. Homemade Christmas ornaments with kids names on them.
7. Bath Salts
8. Matching towels and pot holders.
9. Homemade Jams and jellies.

Wish me luck.


  1. I like your list, nice personal gifts. Wonderful

  2. They all sound great. I love to do that too! Nothing speaks better than from the heart.

  3. Great list, I will give thanks to you for your idea to prepare such a useful list for dear and near ones.
