Crafts & Cooking for December

In December, with the change of the seasons, we look inwards to the hearth, home, and togetherness. Spend quality time with family and friends and do something meaningful like cooking a meal or making a gift from the heart. 

December 3: Make a Gift Day

What is Make a Gift Day? As people prepare to celebrate the holidays, this is a time to focus on handmade, meaningful gifts as opposed to store-bought presents. Checkout our DIY books in our collection, and make gifts at home.
