Christmas 2015 took on a different theme for our family.  Instead of shopping for mass-produced, generic Christmas presents, we set ourselves the challenge of ‘secondhand, handmade or lend-a-hand’ gifts.  And it turned out to be the most fun we’ve had opening presents in a long time!  Here’s a few of the fabulous presents I scored:

If you’re looking for something different to do next Christmas, I highly recommend this idea.  Just make sure you give everyone plenty of warning – it takes a little more time to prepare than usual, but it’s well worth it!
