Gift giving is not just a seasonal thing, but year-round, so I hope you find this guide helpful not only for the winter holidays, but for special occasions through the end of 2015 and throughout 2016.
When you see a hand icon next to the gift suggestion, it means that gift is a DIY and I am linking to the tutorial! Pretty handy, huh? Hand-made gifts are always extra special.
If you would like your products to be featured on this gift guide, I offer three options to fit any company budget. Please email me at [email protected] for more information. Please include “Arts & Crackers 2015 Gift Guide” in your subject line.
