Back to Basics Handmade Christmas Gifts

I know some people make fun of the notion that "it's the thought that counts" - but there is truth in it. Even though a gift may be slightly imperfect, if it was chosen or created with love and heart, it's all the more wonderful. I feel the same way about handmade soap and candle gifts at the holidays. Though your creations may not be absolutely perfect...you can wow your friends and family with your gifts this year. Here are some super basic projects for you to try.

Basic Container Candles

Hi David, i totally agree with what you write. Not only are handmade gifts such as candles fun to do but they are personal and so easy to create. You don’t have to make anything special for a gift because of the thought and work gone in to it. I love to receive anything homemade it’s feels more touching.
