DIY Holiday Gift Giving

The holiday season is upon us, and with Thanksgiving just around the corner there are tons of family gatherings and friendly get-togethers on the horizon.  No one wants to arrive to a party or dinner empty-handed, but the added rush of the holiday season makes it difficult.  I've decided to get ahead on my gift planning and gather some of my favorite ideas for wrapping, presenting, and making your own holiday gifts.  It is so easy to create super inexpensive, but beautiful hostess gifts, favors, or presents for all your holiday parties and events.  One of my favorite parts of holiday gifting is the wrapping of all the presents- and with a little bit of creativity in your presentation, you can turn the most ordinary ingredients into an unforgettable gift!
