Great Gift Ideas from Greeting Cards to Garden Kits

In keeping with our self-sufficiency ethos, these great gift ideas are gifts you can make.


| December 2006/January 2007


Here are 16 great gift ideas from the Mother Earth News editors:

• Personalized greeting cards using card stock, available from any office supply store. Add your favorite photographs, used greeting cards or magazine photos.

• Themed scrapbooks depicting a favorite vacation, holiday or family celebration.

• Handmade books: Use your imagination to write stories based on personal experiences and adventures. Illustrate the book with photos, magazine pictures or your own hand-drawn illustrations.

• Home-brewed soda, cider, beer or wine, or give a brewing kit. (Search our website for recipes for brewing root beer and other sodas.)

• Spiced mulled wine or spiced cider.
