While the gift itself is obviously important, the presentation of your gift can make all the difference as you share your love with your family and friends this holiday season! There are tons of amazing DIY ideas that range from simple and cost-effective, to elaborate and genius! You can turn a simple present into a work of art with a relatively minimal amount of difficulty (and save money on expensive wrapping supplies in the process). What better way to show that you put thought and effort to make the holiday season brighter than with a delicious meal and a beautifully wrapped gift under the tree!

As you decorate and wrap your presents, be sure to use eco-conscious papers and art supplies. Purchase local or fair trade as much as possible and consider the story behind the items you use.

It doesn’t take much to do good and feel good this holiday season!
