Homemade gifts are such a wonderful way to show your friends and family that you care about them during the holiday season. In my home, I try to make our lives more simple by getting rid of stuff, and not accumulating new stuff. If the house starts to get messy and cluttered, I know we have too many things. Your family will be healthier and happier with less stuff to clutter their minds and lives. Giving consumable gifts is a great way to avoid putting your loved ones in the same position! Go beyond cookies with these thoughtful gifts that everyone will love!
