For our extended family Christmas this year, we have agreed not to buy gifts. We will each bring a handmade gift from materials found at home or pass on an item we love, no white elephant items! When we get together, each item will be numbered. We will pull a number and take the gift bearing that number. No purchases allowed. My husband and I have both spent considerable time making gifts. I am looking forward to the exchange. There will be no wasted money and thought goes into our choices.
