Make It, Gift It - Book Review

Buying holiday gifts not in the budget this year? Try making your gifts!

The crafty book Make It, Gift It by Mari Bolte offers a bevy of handmade gift ideas that are perfect for giving around the holidays (edible ornaments! homemade marshmallows in the shape of mittens!) or any special occasion throughout the year (birthday cake body soap! Mother's Day cupcake bouquet!). This is one versatile book.

Technically, it's geared toward tweens and teens, but even adults can find gift-making inspiration in this book. There are edible gift ideas, and you know how much I love giving yummy treats around the holidays. There are also packaging ideas to make your completed gifts look their best when wrapped.

If you've got a crafty kid, are looking for fun crafts for moms and daughters to do together, or are overwhelmed by the number of homemade gift ideas on Pinterest, then definitely give this book a look. It'll be a handy addition to your craft book shelf during the holidays and all year long!

Make It, Gift It is published by Capstone Young Readers and is on bookstore shelves now. I received a free review copy for my honest review.
