Most peple start only now to realize that Christmas is coming and they need to buy some gifts, well there are people that arrives directly on 23rd without thinking about It then realizing and run with the mass of other people, well from some years i tend to buy all my Christmas gift for the end of November max first week of December so I escape fromt he mass of people and I have time to deice gifts and packages...However there are also people that would like to do gifts but they're afraid because their budget is too tiny? well why don't make something with your hands...I found lovely and delicious recipes on web and magazines and I did a personal selection:
KNITTED SCARF using only your hands (honestly I am exercising about It)
yes maybe you must to do a little investmen about bottles, jars and ribbons but is really really low cost...
I love receive handmade gifts --because It means that person spent a good amount of her-his time making something for me and I feel like a special person, then also simply gift can have a great package and usually I attach an handrwritten notes to every gifts, but hei I am snail mail lover and I know that I am in good company!
