WFMW: Holiday Gift Tip {Giveaway}

Congrats to Scene of the Grime, winner of the $75 gift certificate to Show Off Arts!

[suggested theme: share a holiday gift or tip idea]

I finished Christmas shopping months ago….

Please don’t hate me.

I’m so thankful I was able to shop early this year! But let’s not talk about me. Do you still have shopping to do?

Here are my tips this year:

  • Make it-here’s a great list of 30 little gifts you can make
  • Don’t go in debt to buy gifts, be creative
  • Draw family names, because it’s really about the giving, not getting
  • Choose meaningful gifts- like something from Show Off Arts!

I seriously love this faith-based, mom-run art store! Who in your life wouldn’t love to get a gift like this?

Today, link up a post and you’ll be entered to win a $75 gift certificate to Show-Off Arts! Visit Show-Off Arts and leave a comment telling me what you love and you’ll get a second entry!

What works for you during this holiday season?

    I love the celebrate & coffee mug plaques. I also think the “as for me and my house” one would make a good gift for my brother who is getting married next year. Thanks for the opportunity to win! :-)

    Good for you for getting in done. When my kids were little I was able to do it months ahead. Now they are older and it’s not toys it’s things, and from day to day it might not even be the same thing. Anyways, we don’t buy a lot, so it’s not a big deal to work on it now. But I am not going lie, I miss those days.

    Love the canvas tree!! I don’t have a blog, so can’t send you a linky. My WFMW is that our kids each get 3 gifts for Christmas, just like Jesus did. This cuts down on the material madness of the season & keeps our focus on Christ.
    Love your blog!!

    I love the row of vases canvas. Perfect time in my life to constantly be reminded not to conform to the world.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    You know what? I am a sucker for notepads! I’d be able to get myself and others some. :) The clay necklaces are cute, too, and would be great gifts.

    I love the topiary canvas! I actually was going to paint that verse around my doorframe, but this sounds like a better idea. Everything in this shop is amazing. Thanks for the great link and giveaway opportunity.

    Hey Kristen…I know it’s funky title…but I really want to grab everyone’s attention and get them to hop on over and put some BIDS on my rubber stamp sale to benefit The Mercy House. I emailed you on Monday and didn’t hear back from you so just wanted to touch base with you since today is the last day for BIDs.
    Fondly, Roberta

    I actually just browsed their site this week! There are so many cute things, but I think I like the Bless this Food and the Joshua 1:9 one (like you posted) the most.

    I don’t have a blog, so I hope I’m still eligible to enter once this way even w/o the link-up.

    Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would
    be greatly appreciated!

    Unquestionably believe that wwhich you stated. Youur favorit
    reason apppeared to be onn the net the simplest
    thing too be aware of. I say too you, I certainly
    gget annoyed while pelple think about worries tht they plainly don’t know about.

    You managed to hitt the nail upon thee ttop as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people could ttake a signal. Will probably bbe ack too get more.
