Mama Bee's Holiday Tip of the Week - Nov. 27

My favorite gifts are those that people have made themselves. Homemade gifts demonstrate caring, creativity, and passion. You don't have to be super crafty to pull together a meaningful (and frugal!) gift for your friends and family. Think about what you can do and go from there. Do you bake, cook, or scrapbook? Offer homemade cookies, soup, or a small book. Are you handy with a camera? Give a small framed print. Can you offer baby sitting? Give a coupon for a night of service. A DIY Christmas gift is the frugal and thoughtful way to go this year.
