Giving the Gift of Handmade Gifts


One of our favorite gifts to give are those that are handmade. This holiday season, we took a break from the holiday stress and spent an afternoon decorating stockings to fill with Welch’s holiday fruit snacks for some of our family and friends. We decided to fill the stockings with Welch’s fruit snacks vs. candy because they are made with real fruit (which is the first ingredient), they are 100% DV vitamin C, 25% DV Vitamin A&E, fat-free, gluten-free, and have no preservatives – making them a great alternative to candy.

It was a fun afternoon as my kids added buttons, bells, and stickers to the red stockings. Once we were done decorating the festive stockings, we filled them up with lots of Welch’s fruit snacks before delivering them. When our friends saw the handmade stocks, it brought smiles to their faces, and they immediately started enjoying the delicious tasty treats inside.

When looking for something simple to make for a last-minute holiday gift, a handmade stocking is the perfect gift idea. All you need is some glue, decorations, and some creativity. Have fun holiday crafting with your children this weekend.
