I’ve often had issues in the past with feeling like a homemade gift was not enough of a gift… but have realized in the last several years that it is often more appreciated and liked than ones I’ve spent a lot more on! My oldest daughter especially likes to make the gifts that she gives to her grandparents and friends, and that can save us a lot of money!
The last few years we have been buying items from Dollar Tree to give as gifts. We just went shopping last week, as my dad’s birthday is next month, and they have a lot of good choices! We didn’t get any new paint as we still have more than enough, but I have often found these types of paints for under $1 (now $1.25) at Walmart or Meijer.
Right now my daughter is working on the windchime that we found, she’s pretty excited for it! My parents love the American Flag cross she made last year and display it in their living room.
