All our favorite stress-free gift ideas for the homesteader in your life!
On this week’s episode of The Pantry Chat, Josh and Carolyn are sharing with you how they have simplified Christmas gift-giving in a way that brings the family together during the Christmas season instead of the normal hustle and bustle that tends to stress folks out and send us all in different directions.
We’re sharing some DIY ideas as well as family-friendly gifts from other homesteaders. There’s sure to be something in today’s show that will inspire you for the Christmas season ahead!
