I’m always looking ahead to the next holiday. My Christmas lights are packed away on December 26th. I toss my valentines in the recycling bin on February 15th, and I don’t even think about dyeing eggs until the night before Easter Sunday. Still, I make one exception every year: Elf. It’s such a heartwarming and hilarious movie that I could watch it any day of the year. Whether I’m shivering in subzero temperatures or sweating my way through a heat wave, I’m ready to watch Will Ferrell tackle Santa or get caught in a revolving door.
One of my favorite parts of the film is when Buddy recites the Code of the Elves with his classmates. Rule number 1? Treat every day like Christmas. Sure, it sounds lovely, but if I had to give gifts to my loved ones every day, I’d be broke in no time. Luckily, there are easy and affordable alternatives: DIY Christmas gifts. At AllFreeChristmasCrafts we have a ton of budget-friendly ideas for any occasion. While these projects would make wonderful Christmas presents, you can give them any day of the year.
