DIY Tea Gift: Make This Adorable Budget-Friendly Gift For Tea Lovers
When you make something for someone you are giving them a gift of time, and that is the most precious gift we can give.
“Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time. The best way to spell love is “T-I-M-E.”
– Rick Warren
So how do you show someone you care about them without breaking the bank? Easy, make your own budget-friendly gifts!
