Show Some Love with Handmade Gifts: Part 2

Last week, we spoke about the incomparable joy of handmade gifts. There’s absolutely nothing like knowing your gift was crafted specially to suit your tastes, interests, and personality. The beauty of handmade gifts is that they’re twice as meaningful, usually for half the price of say,  a new espresso machine. Personalized gifts come straight from the heart, not the wallet!
