At Christmas time the shops are full of all kinds of special novelty gifts to give. They are generally fun things to give and have, but not really useful or needed. Now I love the excitement of Christmas including the gift giving a lot, but try to be mindful in the gifts I'm giving that I'm not being wasteful either with money - or to the environment. So I decided to see what 'novelty gifts' I could make myself - at a cost of next to nothing, using scrap fabric and supplies I had at home. These gifts make great stocking fillers or perhaps Secret Santa gifts, Plus they are all small and light which is great for posting overseas!
I hope you can find some inspiration here to make your own 'novelty' gifts this year and save a little money - and reduce waste for the environment!
