Our Homemade Christmas Gift Tradition


Our homemade Christmas gift tradition isn’t an attempt to save money; we often end up spending as much or more on supplies than we would a store-bought gift! And I know we could put just as much thought into a purchased gift – and that we sometimes create something homemade that is the equivalent to a last-minute desperation purchase! What I love about our homemade Christmas gift tradition is that it forces us as a family to think deeply about each other and ourselves. It helps us as parents instil the idea that the value of an object is not in its price or its perfection, but in its intent. And I’ve realized it’s teaching all of us the importance of embracing our creativity. Each year we give ourselves the opportunity to explore a skill we might not otherwise use all year – sewing, woodworking, writing, drawing, or whatever else we dream up.
