During this downtime in the economy, homemade Christmas gifts are "all the rage" this year.
Homemade gifts from your kitchen is ALWAYS appreciated & welcomed! They are inexpensive & you can make large batches to give to the Mail Person, neighbors, "secret santa" gifts, co-workers or take to a Holiday party as a "thank you".
