About Make a Gift Day
When is Make a Gift Day? This holiday is always observed on December 3
Black Friday has come and gone. Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are also in the rearview mirror. You energetically shopped them all. Yes, some if the big shopping days have come and gone. Yet, you still have a lot of people to shop for. Perhaps it’s time to change your approach just a little bit. Make a Gift Day has arrived to help you with your holiday shopping. On this December 3 holiday, you can finish all of your gift-giving needs by making the perfect present for those on your list that are hard to buy for. It makes gift-giving more personal, too. In addition to all of the fun you will have making the presents, you will save money, too.
Once upon a time, everything was hand-made. There were no factories. Nowadays, most products come from a factory, most likely one in China. So, anyone can buy a ready-made gift from a store. You can even buy hand-made items from craft shows and craft stores. And, they can be very personal, too. But, the true personal gift, is one you make with your own two hands. Hand-made is special when the hands are yours. Making a unique gift is fun for the giver and cherished by the recipient.
Today’s Slogan: “Yesterday is the past. Tomorrow is the future. But today is a gift. That’s why it is called the present.” – – Bil Keane

- First, spend a few minutes thinking about the person you will make a gift for. Think about common things between you and what he or she likes.
- Then, begin your projects by going to a craft store or a craft show to get ideas on what to make.
- Now consider your skills. Make gifts that are within your capabilities.
- Acquire the tools and materials you need.
- Now the fun begins. As you make the gift, take your time so it comes out well.
- Finally, wrap it up in Christmas paper. Then, add ribbon and a bow, if you prefer.
Tip: If you make the same gift for more than one person, try to make each one just a little different.
