This year, in addition to some handmade items I bought on Etsy during last weekend’s sales, I’ve decided to make handmade gifts for my family this year.
I will be making Prosperity Fortune Cookies. What are those, you say? These are homemade fortune cookies that I will fill with prosperity-wishing quotes and best wishes for the new year. I got the fortune cookie idea from this list, and the prosperity quotes are my own twist on it.
I will also make some tea blends and hot cocoa blends to accompany these gifts. I cannot wait to give them because I look forward to making them. The holidays and birthdays are when I go all out making gifts. I find that they bring both the maker and the receiver more joy. I know I am doubly grateful to receive something made with love by the gifter.
Have you made gifts before? What have you made? In addition to this list, what homemade/handmade gift ideas would you like to share?
