5 Homemade Gifts for Gardeners

I’ve been hard at work the last month making and sharing posts for homemade gift ideas for gardeners on the MomItForward blog! I’m pretty excited with the way all of these turned out, but I have my favorite. Can you guess?

Today, I thought I’d compile the projects over here for you all to see. If you’ve got gardeners on your Christmas list this year, here are 5 easy projects you can make them. And you can bet, if I made them, they’re easy. :-)

If you’re looking for a homemade treat to give to this time of year, I’ve got an idea for you today! This Pomegranate Orange Bread is easy to make and could be a nice gift for the teacher, neighbor, or bus driver on your list…and what a fun way to sneak in some antioxidant rich foods – pomegranates are soooo good for you! I adapted Betty Crocker’s recipe here to make these mini-loaves.

IKEA Soft Toys for Education – because everyone deserves to learn

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own. #IKEASoftToysEdu #CleverGirls

Education is a topic that’s near and dear to my heart as I’ve got four kids ranging in age from 10  to 4 years old and also teach college classes myself. In the six years my kids have been receiving formal education, we’ve used a variety of schooling methods: homeschooling and public schooled. Last year, two of them were public schooled, but this year they all came home.

I’m not a die hard advocate of any one type of education – homeschool, private school, public school – they all have pluses and minuses. We do whatever works best for our family at any particular time – so it’s not that big of a deal to switch between the different educational opportunities available to me and my family. While it causes family conflict sometimes {not everyone is on board with homeschooling}, I can’t express to you how thankful I am to have educational options!
