One of my favorite holiday traditions of the last few years has been forgoing tangible Christmas gifts in favor of purchasing a shared experience. With that in mind. I have been buying my mom, sister and myself a wreathmaking class in early December it’s a long afternoon of crafting and chitchatting and we each go home with a beautiful wreath. It becomes something we look forward to every year, and no one misses the packages on Christmas morning. — Katy Kiick.
