10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

A holiday poem AND my 2015 gift suggestion list! 🙂

How the time is flying…

Happy Shopping and Holidays 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep…

Handmade and Heartfelt Holiday Gifts!

Well, the WordPress snow has now arrived so it definitely ’tis the season’ to think about gifts, of all kinds. 😉

I hope you find this recent post from Veggies, Yarns & Tails, helpful and inspiring.

I really do think heartfelt gifts are the way to go, all year round.

Have a wonderful, magical week! 🙂

gift ideas 2013

I ♥ handmade and heartfelt gifts, to give and to receive.

Made with ♥, special and one of a kind gifts. Also, giving of our time, in big and small ways. Treasures and memories that will be enjoyed and remembered for years to come.

Gotta ♥ all those reasons and more. 😉

On the eve of Black Friday, I thought I’d share some suggestions here at Veggies…for easy to make handmade gifts and other ideas, just in time for Christmas.

What is your fav handmade gift that you’ve made for someone or received?
