So I hate to skip right over Thanksgiving celebrations....but I'm curious about what different families do in terms of Christmas gifts? Do you get up in the early hours after Thanksgiving and go Black Friday shopping? Cyber Monday shopping? Make homemade gifts?
Until a few years ago, I NEVER did Black Friday shopping. Honestly, we don't do a lot of gifts for Christmas. I try to think of a few things that my kiddos will really enjoy and find those at the lowest price possible. I'm not ashamed to say that I buy stuff second hand and if someone is getting rid of something that I know mine would love for Christmas, I'm all about it! But, I also get a little excited when I see all the deals on Black Friday. It's hard not to want to go crazy and get things at such a great price. It takes a lot of self-control! This year, though, I've found some really cute homemade projects that I'd like to do for the kiddos. I have high hopes....but we'll see. Maybe I'll be able to get it done! Here's what I'm thinking...
I think these are really cute!

This would be so adorable! Include a book with little dollpin models to go with it! Great for a gift, too! (couldn't find the link)
I LOVE this fabric charm necklace
....and this bird's egg nest necklace
This is just so pretty....
For grownup gifts....
Cloth napkin love..
I've got to stop myself, because there's just too many things out there! Now....to find the time to do all of these projects! : ) I did find a bag of stones...the rock kind and some glass ones...for $1/bag at the Dollar Tree. SO....I'm already getting started! : ) Stocking stuffers!
I'd love to hear your ideas. Mission: Don't Spend Too Much for Christmas is ON! : )-->
