It's that time of year when you will need to get a gift for someone you may not know very well... a teacher, doctor, the lady whom pours your daily coffee. A great way to extend a small sign of appreciation to these special people are homemade gifts.
A homemade gift is general enough to be liked by most people, but personal enough to show the effort and thoughtfulness of the gift itself.
This year my boys will be giving their teachers a few simple treasures: a homemade sugar scrub (recipe to follow), a rice pad for small aches and pains (will post soon), several different homemade cookies and a CD filled with soothing music to relax the senses.
When the budget is tight, this is an especially nice gift because many of the items are things that are generally on hand.
