This is the best season to share gifts, spend quality time with your family, and be grateful for the gift of the baby Jesus and the gift of everything around you.
- Send Christmas gifts:
Christmas is all about giving and making people happy. Start early and make a list of your friends, family, and the less privileged that you would like to get presents for, and start picking bits and pieces up when you’re out at the shops. Handmade gifts are perfect for this occasion as they tell their recipients that you, the giver, mean more to them than any item that could have been picked off the shelf.
