The best gifts I've ever received? They are the ones that my daughter makes from scratch using some scrap paper, glue and whatever she finds in the backyard. The ones that carry simple, misspelled, true words that come straight from her heart. The ones that bring back old memories. Ever since I was a little girl, when I asked my mom what she wanted for her birthday or Christmas, she smiles and said, “Make me something.” I was raised in a family where a special experience together or a handmade gift is considered far more valuable than purchasing something from Amazon. Consider and support handmade this year. Whether it's a warm scarf, a unique ceramic or a one of a kind piece of jewlery. Tell somebody you love they are special to you, buy handmade.
