We did some home made Christmas gifts this year. Not many, but a couple for the people we knew would appreciate it.
This way it was economical and includes lots of love! For the grandparents and an aunt and uncle, I made apple butter. It turned out delicious, so I decided to make more for gifts. The recipe I used is here (as are the printable circles). I added a bit of fabric I had and some ribbon (which is actually harder to tie than it looks) and wola! A cute and yummy gift! The only thing I ended up buying for these gifts were cloves, and I had been meaning to get some anyhow :}
