Each year, I try to be creative, frugally green, Christ centered and meaningful while giving gifts at Christmas time. I LOVE giving gifts to people. I don't spend a lot of money, but I try to create each gift with lots thought and love - without adding more stuff and clutter to people's lives.
For the next few days, I will share some of my favorite gifts from this year - and please share yours too! I always love discovering new ideas.
I'll begin with the GIFT OF WATER.
I found these really cool reusable water bottles and snatched up several right away with this idea in mind. This is the gift we gave to Josh's boss and 3 secretaries.
It's an empty reusable water bottle wrapped in tissue paper with a homemade tag tied on that reads:
"Please accept this water bottle as a sign of hope.
$10 was given in your name at www.charitywater.org
$10 will give one child clean, safe water for life."
When I go to the store, I've been asking for paper bags. I'm using the bags to make homemade gift tags. They are adorable!
