  1. Rolled Beeswax Candles (Homemade)
    Forget petroleum, save some money, and make your friends and family home made beeswax candles. They look and smell great – and are a fun craft project for the family. –https://www.favecrafts.com/Candles-Soap/Rolled-Beeswax-Candles
  2. Create a repurposed fashionable dress for girls out of Over-sized Men’s shirts.
    Save money and reuse materials by creating a dress for your children, mothers, nieces and friends by using an over-sized men’s shirt (choose a pattern of your choice!)https://www.favecrafts.com/Clothing/Turn-a-Shirt-into-a-Girly-Dress
  3. The Gift of Food this Holiday Season!
    Spend a day in the kitchen, baking sweets and candy for both kids and adults. You will find some great ideas  in Mrs. Clauses Cookbook
  4. Night at the Movies
    Tuck gift certificates (2 or more) from a local cinema into the stockings of your loved ones, include a popcorn and beverage voucher, so that your loved one can go see a film for Christmas with a friend or significant other!
  5. If a gift requires batteries this season, purchase rechargeable batteries!
