Saturday Handy Tip : Keep Generic Gifts on Hand

Around this time of year especially, it's entirely possible that you will receive a Christmas present from someone who you didn't put on your list. It's a good idea to find some fairly generic gifts to have on hand at all times. Things that can work well are stuff like candles, home made preserves or pancake mix (which is what I did last year). 

Another person I know knits dishcloths year round and keeps a few on hand as gifts throughout the year. 

So be sure to pop a couple of generic things in a drawer for Christmas and maybe for the rest of the year too! It could be your saving grace in an awkward social situation!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
