Holiday Hint #5: Never Get Caught Empty Handed

Posted by Ali on November 17 at 05:01 pm

This post is part of a series for the 2011 Holiday Season… Follow along on the Holiday Page!

Have you ever been in the unfortunate situation of being the recipient of a gift without having anything to give in return?

Make a few extra gifts to have on hand. Keep them in your car, or in your purse. Everyone likes a simple pair of sparkly earrings or a “match everything” multi color bracelet. These gifts can even be made with your extra beads and findings, so you don’t have to spend more money than you have to!

    I do this! It isn’t always jewelry that I have ‘on hand’ just in case, because sometimes it is a guy friend that will surprise me. So when I bake I make up enough stuff and create gift baskets I keep in the fridge. If no one surprises me, I just take it to a holiday gathering.
