Since this year my friends and myself were short on funds we decided to have a cookie party instead of buying each other gifts. We all gathered at one of my friends' houses and each brought a recipe to try and divided up the cookies between us at the end. It was a really great idea and we all want to do it again next year :o)
I also made decoupage boxes for my friends, a project that my craft group from work had taken on a couple weeks back. I chose personalized themes for each box and got to work. And I think they turned out to be nice, thoughtful gifts and I really had fun making them.
So those are the homemade gifts I gave my friends, it was a lot of fun choosing the themes and decorating the boxes......I already have stickers picked out for a box for me! And thanks to my crafting friends for giving me the idea!!
