Whew, what a weekend! I partied a little too late on Saturday night and had a rude awakening Sunday when I had to wake up early and teaching Spinning class. But, it was worth it- great times with great friends and awesome food + drink. More details on that Wednesday… but here’s a preview:
After an early morning wake-up call, the rest of Sunday included Greg and me being lazy, watching football and (me) spending way too much time on Pinterest. Here’s a confession: I actually rarely ever use Pinterest! It’s something that I really never allowed myself to get into, and now I see why! You can get sucked in for hours.
I’ve been trying to gather ideas for good DIY gifts to give for Christmas. In the past, I’ve used Whole Foods Recipe site, which lists a ton of awesome homemade edible gift ideas. I’ve made quite a few gifts from there over the years, including
Sugar-Dusted Whole Wheat Graham Crackers (I need to make these again, just to have some on hand!)
(I actually made these for co-workers last year and posted about it here. Check out how CUTE they are!)
I’m thinking of making either granola or some kind of trail mix this year… and hoping that I have the motivation to follow through!
Cassie has been posting so many amazing DIY gifts for her Handmade Holiday series, and I want to make all of them! Some of my favorites include Healthy Homemade Dog Treats
(I would sub the whole wheat flour for chickpea flour because my guys are grain-free.) I even went out and bought a bone-shaped cookie cutter! And yes, Cassie, Greg and I certainly give the boys Christmas presents every year.
I am also totally in love with these coasters!
We actually have a bunch of large branches that were on a tree that we lost from Hurricane Sandy- and they would be perfect for this project.
Check out The Broken Plow for many more awesome DIY gift ideas!
…and just one more thing.
Dark Chocolate Superfood Bark from SpaBettie. I’m not sure that if I made this, it would actually make it to other people as gifts. I might have to eat it all myself.
I’m off to pin some non-edible gift ideas now…
Oh! And check out this photo that my friend Sara posted on Facebook last night of her sister-in-law’s Jamberry Nails!

Do you make gifts for other people? Any good ideas to share?
