A Handmade Christmas
I have been feeling inspired by other bloggers to challenge myself to participate in a handmade christmas this year. In years gone by I have made gifts for ballet, music, kinder and school teachers. If there has ever been male teachers on the list that we want to give a Christmas (thank-you) gift to, then I would usually purchase something for them. Bottles of wine seems to be THE gift to give male teachers! This year we have 3 male teachers to buy for. Please help me!! I really want to make 2010 a handmade christmas for all of our gift receivers..I would love to hear of any suggestions of something that I or my children could help make.
Last Christmas my mum offered to buy my kids a Wii as a combined family gift but much to the amazement and absolute horror of many of my frineds I said "no thanks". As Christmas Day got closer my mum offered again but I still thanked her and declined her generous gift idea. We have enjoyed some great christmas gifts from my mother.....a family swimming pass, a family zoo pass, a family pass to Sovereign Hill...and these were fantastic because they could be used all year! I know that she will be offering a family gift again this year so I will probably suggest to her that another zoo pass would be great! Does anyone have any other ideas?
Thank-you to everyone who has been taking the time to read my blog and for the wonderful comments. I really enjoy reading the comments, knowing that my blog IS being read.
