Love this book! It's got quite a few excellent ideas to help make your Christmas a bit greener and a lot more handmade. Lots of photos and great ideas! I really recommend it. However, the recipes were not as easy to follow, but can inspire you to create some of your own!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and all the miscellaneously inspiring projects! Lots of ideas, pictures, information and details regarding how to do each craft and what to look for in a completed project. I recommend this book for anyone trying to cut their Christmas budget in half and learn to give with lovingly handmade goods instead of commercially bought future-trash.
My only complaint is that the recipes are not very straight forward. I had to add liquid to my recipe, and it is not very descriptive on what to do for making the recipe or what TYPES of sugar, "sugar syrup" or flour to use.

This reads almost like a book composed by a child… The crafts are quite childish and silly at times. A couple of interesting recipes, but that’s about it. Do not recommend.

Great book. Full of fun ideas for xmas gifts, crafts, food and more! I liked that it had lots of colour photos and easy to follow instructions! I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in celebrating a "greener christmas."
