|My son's handmade Christmas jammies.|
I grew up in a home where Christmas was a big event. Once a year Santa lavished our middle income family with rooms full of presents. It blew my husband away the first time he spent Christmas with us. My Dad fancies himself a modern St. Nick, and each year gets more impressive. The lesson I took from his genuine merriment was not that buying lots of things is important. No the joy lies in finding the unique, the beautiful, the one perfect present for each person. For me, I do this by giving handcrafted presents.
