A year or two ago I read a post written by Emily Schuman about homemade gifts and I loved it. I like the idea of being creative rather than convenient when it comes to gift giving. Yes it may take more time and effort but in the end it's way more meaningful and sentimental. Gift your mom, sister or friend with something a little special like their favorite kind of desert, a bottle of wine, do-it-yourself stationary set, a homemade candle and a house warming plant, I guarantee they'll love it!
