Family Center - Hook Me Up
Get Back to the Roots
This year more than ever we need to get back to the roots of family and give less from our pocketbooks and more from our hearts. I have set out to find some sites to help generate ideas for homemade, from-the-heart gifts this season.
This site houses a lot of wonderful homemade gift ideas. You'll find useful, personal, and charming gift ideas for almost everyone on your list.
You will find a lot of categories to search on this site, from Christmas gift ideas to activities to do with your kids.

OK, who doesn't love cookies? This holiday season spend time with your family baking cookies and making memories. Then pack them up and give a box to your friends and family.

You'll find cute and simple ideas and directions to make Christmas ornaments. For our family, the homemade ornaments we hang on our tree hold special memories.

This site has lots of ideas, but I LOVED the survival kit ideas. You'll find kit ideas for just about everyone. I will be using some of these ideas myself!
