Celebrate and Create

11/17/2014 02:49AM ● Published by Family Features

This season, let your creative side shine with thoughtful gifts that are fun to create and add cheer to the lives of those you love.

Turning everyday items from ordinary to extraordinary, Erica Domesek, creator of the lifestyle site "P.S. - I made this," offers these affordable, on-trend projects and tips to elevate your mornings and make your holidays delightfully DIY:

Weekender Gift Basket

Will you be traveling and staying with family and friends over the holidays? Never show up empty handed! A basket of coffee accessories is the perfect go-to holiday gift for the host who has everything. Be sure to pack in a premium coffee selection, such as Millstone® Coffee House Blend, a medium slow-roast coffee with a flavorful, smooth finish. Fill the basket with elements that complement each other, from coffee mugs to kitchen towels to coasters.

Monogram Coaster Set

For a gift that's totally unique, use your loved one's initials to create a beautiful, personalized monogramed coaster set. This practical and charming gift will brighten up any table space.

Metallic Patterned Coffee Mugs

Make metallic your new neutral. A combination of gold, silver and bronze adds sparkle and shine to ordinary morning mugs. Create a set of four for the family, then relax and celebrate with a cup of a dark, full-bodied roast, such as the Mayan Black Onyx® blend from Millstone.
