Giving people gifts that we have made ourselves brings joy in special ways. The psychology behind it is simple: it enables people to connect!
Present giving is an ancient practice. Excavations have revealed that even cavemen gave each other gifts, be it an unusually shaped rock, a tooth from an animal, the bark from a tree, or some other item that was natural in origin. As tools were developed, gifts started to become more elaborate.
This art box celebrates the art and beauty of homemade gift-giving, with projects ranging from making clay candlesticks to painting fabric hanging embroidery hoop decorations! Ideal for encouraging children to make presents for their loved ones, be it parents, grandparents, siblings or friends!
