“Tis the season for relaxing, sharing holiday meals, and exchanging gifts with family and friends. There are many options for gifts that don’t break the bank. Are you a baker? Get together with friends and make different batches of cookies and do a cookie exchange. Here’s a book from the catalog to check out some different recipes: Cookie Swap by Julia M. Usher http://tiny.cc/zz0zt. Do you like to knit or sew? Scarves can be an easy and colorful option that doesn’t take a lot of time. Nobody can have too many hats.  Mix and match colors to make a truly unique gift. If you can’t afford to buy yarn, stop by a thrift store to see if they have any on their shelves. Here are two staff favorites for knitters: More last-minute knitted gifts by Joelle Hoverson http://tiny.cc/fsnif and Hat Heads by Trond Anfinsen http://tiny.cc/fzyra. Free knitting advice offered Thursdays at the Point Reyes Library from 4:30-5:30 pm or the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month at the Novato Library from 7:00-8:00 pm. Everyone loves a handmade gift and it’s fun to do on your own or with a friend.
