It’s #ParentsGifts Week- get gift ideas!

Monday, December 9th, 2013

I’m so excited to be participating in Parents Gifts Week!  This week, December 9 to December 13, I’ll be joining Amanda Kingloff of Everyday Fun and Melanie Blodgett from You Are My Fave to bring you a bunch of great ideas for stocking stuffers, kids’ presents, homemade gifts and more.  We’ll be pinning our favorite crafty and unique (and for my part, inexpensive) gift ideas to the Parents pinterest board.   Get in on the conversation and share your ideas (or borrow someone else’s) using #ParentsGifts on Twitter and Pinterest.

And while you’re over at Pinterest, feel free to check out my Pinterest boards too!

20 Delicious Homemade Food Gift Ideas

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

I love gifting homemade goodies.  Not only is it inexpensive, it’s also personal.  And really, who doesn’t love receiving something delicious and homemade?

Here are 20 homemade food gift ideas that I gathered from around the web- perfect for giving to your neighbors, co-workers, mail carrier or that hard-to-buy-for relative.  I tried to choose ideas that would be relatively easy to make so that you won’t be spending hours in the kitchen whipping up some homemade gift goodness.  And I even included a couple of healthy ideas in case you prefer that!
