One of the best parts of the holidays is giving gifts – especially homemade gifts – to the ones you love. Remember that second grade winter craft project with popsicle sticks? Yep, it’s hanging on your parents’ tree, right next to the store-bought glass bauble. It’s that mix of old and new, homemade and bought, that makes the holidays so special.
