8 Homemade Gifts To Give Your S.O. This Christmas

The holidays are quickly approaching, which means it's time to start brainstorming what to gift your significant other this Christmas. Shopping for your boyfriend/girlfriend can be tough (and expensive), so why not make a homemade gift from the heart?

Consider making one of these cute homemade gifts for your S.O. this Christmas:

1. "Open when..." letters

"Open when you're having a bad day," "open when you miss me," "open when you need some inspiration"—the list goes on. Writing your boyfriend or girlfriend a set of letters is thoughtful, romantic and a gift that keeps on giving. If you're in a long distance relationship, this is perfect for you!

2. Frame your "firsts"

If you're a sentimental couple, consider making a keepsake of your "firsts" together with labels and locations.

3. Funny coffee mugs

It's one thing to gift a coffee mug, but a personalized mug that you decorate yourself is on a whole different level. Make your S.O. smile with a silly coffee mug made just for them.

4. DIY Christmas ornament

There are so many possibilities with this one: make a keepsake out of movie tickets, your first house/apartment key, wine corks, your wedding invitation and so much more. This gift isn't just timely with the holidays, it's a keepsake you could hang up every Christmas together.

5. Date night in a box

Put together a box with the tools for a future date night together—a bottle of wine, chocolates, a movie, a cozy blanket, and you're all set.

6. Homemade art

If you're the artsy type, maybe a homemade piece of art is the perfect gift idea. This could be anything from a collage, to a painting, to a framed image of you two.

7. A "favorite things" bag

Show your S.O. how well you know them with a DIY "favorite things" bag filled with things like their favorite candy, a gift card to their favorite restaurant, a piece of clothing from their favorite brand, and so on.

8. The classic scrapbook

You can never go wrong with a scrapbook. Perhaps the ultimate sentimental DIY gift, there's no way your S.O. won't be blown away by something so thoughtful.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
