This year I have got the girls to make their Christmas presents for their friends. I have found that not only is it much more fun getting them involved, but a lot cheaper in the long run! They have spent hours threading beads onto elastic and painting glass jars and we are all really pleased with the results.
Although each item only costs pence to make, the overall effect still looks great. The fact they are homemade by the girls, means they will make lovely presents for family and friends to treasure and keep forever. I think this means a lot more than spending a fortune on a shop bought presents.
