A lot of us tend to over-extend ourselves during this time of year. We feel obligated to attend every holiday shindig, to trim a perfect tree, hang those lights and decorations just right around the house – it’s exhausting! Now that we’re so close to the big day, I think it’s time for all of us to take a couple of hours away from all of that holiday stress and do something for ourselves.
You guys know that I’m all about buying handmade, but one of the challenges of shopping for handmade goods online is that just because something is handmade doesn’t mean it’s environmentally friendly. It can be a little bit of a hassle to filter results to find just upcycled crafts when you’re already searching for something specific. Wouldn’t it be awesome if there were a place where you could shop online for exclusively upcycled goodies? It turns out that there is!
For some reason, I always have a tougher time picking out something handmade for the guys on the list. Do you guys have this problem? Maybe it’s that handmade goodies tend toward the girlie? Whatever the reason, finding handmade gifts for him is a sticking point on my holiday list every year.
