Sometimes you just can’t beat homemade gifts 🎁🎀🎄

Sometimes you just can’t beat homemade 🎁🎀🎄

My friend Jocelyn gifted me this ornament she made from a slice of Birch, and burned into it the date we started our tiny house adventure. 💛

My gift to my grandpa: date-fills. When my grandma was alive, he’d always request she make these this time of year, his favorite Christmas cookies.

I wanted to keep the wrapping sustainable, to keep in line with the Second Hand Christmas rules. I thrifted this box last year and gave it a little something with the twine and cutting. Then I added some linen, that I had extra of from a previous project, to the bottom of the container. This box has many more gifting days ahead of it!
