a handmade holiday

I discovered the joy in handmade gifts nearly 5 years ago, when Tim and I infused vodka with skittles to give to friends. We were totally hooked! It's so fun to give a gift to a loved one made with your own two hands and infused with love and care. While it may be easy to click a button and have something gift wrapped and sent directly to a friend's front door (which - don't get me wrong - I still do!), but I find complete and utter joy in spending a day in my kitchen cooking and crafting up handmade gifts to be savored, smelled, and loved.

As you may know, I like to craft potions and healing elixirs all year long - taking pleasure in finding that perfect jar and beautiful label to package them in. So, given that we are less than 3 weeks away from the Christmas holiday (whoa, time is a crazy beast this year...), I thought I'd share 35 of my favorite handmade gifts that you can make for your loved ones.
