Simple Homemade Gifts, Decorations And Desserts To Try This Christmas

For many, Christmas involves slaving away in the kitchen preparing meals and cleaning up afterwards, not to mention all the stress about gifts. Why not try making things a little simpler this year? 

Gifts

Cash Christmas Tree: It might sound tacky, but many people prefer cash as a gift! Fold notes into triangles to form a Christmas tree, place on nice background paper and frame it.

Centrepiece: all you need is a wooden crate (or any container will do), some candles, pinecones and any plants of your choice – even succulents would work.
