TODAY IS MAKE A GIFT DAY
There’s just something amazing about unwrapping a gift, wondering what’s inside. Underneath the wrapping paper could be anything, a CD from your favorite band, a new headset from Best Buy, any one of a million things from a million stores. But what’s really special is when you open up that paper and what’s found inside is a tangible representation of the love and adoration the person giving the gift felt you. Nothing says that like a hand-made gift, and on Make a Gift Day, you get to be the one to share that love with the people you care about.
How to celebrate Make A Gift Day
Make A Gift Day encourages you to try your hand at producing a gift, no matter what it is. We all have skills we can turn to producing something made with personal care and attention. Whether you’re creating an elaborate card with the little emblems and symbols you know the recipient adores, or creating an entire outfit for that next Con, Make A Gift Day encourages you to really express yourself and your view of the recipient through arts and crafts.
