The Gift of Water...

 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
$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!


  1. hmmmmm. . . . takes 3 secretaries to look after Josh? :0)

  2. well - yes - kind of! :) I don't know who is looking after who though! There's an athletic secretary, a treasurer and a main office secretary. Basically, they all block people before getting to Josh! :)

  3. Great idea!!! I love how creative you are because I am so not! You have the best thoughtful ideas ever:)
