I know what your thinking….” Christmas already?????? ” It’s not even Halloween yet!
But when your someone who makes all the gifts you do need to start early.
Over the weekend our son Liam made us a beautiful, natural Christmas tree garland. He took some thick Hemp rope and natural stained wooden balls to make this. I love the natural colors mixed with the raw look of hemp rope. Each year for the last 12 years, Henry and I have made Christmas gifts for everyone. Each year is different from the previous, so it’s time we get some ideas together and get busy. This Christmas, I think I will make some Hemp/cotton comfy pants for everyone. I have lots of extra fabric and they are quick and easy for me to make.
All our gifts are made with natural and organic in mind. From herb boxes, clothing, soaps and recycled projects. I feel that a gift made by us is much more heart felt. We stay clear of the craziness in stores, the craziness of other people who forgot the true meaning of gift giving and kindness. I have enjoyed each year making my gifts and will do so as the years go by.
We (Really me) have made pants a few years ago for everyone however, I’m thinking those all long gone or don’t fit some of them. Along with our handmade soap, this should be a wonderful gift to give.
What do you make for Christmas gifts?
Will you make something new this year?
Do you keep Eco friendly in mind with your gifts?

Thanks for sharing. We have just started thinking about Christmas too. We tend to give some homemade gifts, such as: beauty products and foods to friends and family. Like you, we try to make sure all our gifts are natural. This year we are gearing up to make everything we give people.
I love handmade gifts…. Food would be fun to give too. I don’t bake much so my favorite gift every year is Oma’s baked goods sent to us by mail. It’s always loaded with goodness.
Giving a handmade gift just feels good to my soul.
I totally agree. There is something much more special about making personal gifts. Good luck with yours this year. 🙂
