Gifts for Homesteaders
It's that time of year again and people are asking me what stuff I'm interested in getting for Christmas. This question has really started to stump me and this year is no different. As a homesteader I find I just don't have much need for a lot of stuff.
Honestly, I would be thrilled if someone bought me a dump truck load of good wood chips - or fall leaves...
But there are some gifts that could be useful on the homestead beyond mulch. In this special mid-week blog post 10 Awesome Gifts for the Homesteader in Your Life
I share 10 items that I think are great gifts for a homesteader.
This is a special mid-week blog post. Most weeks I only publish 1 blog post - but when there is a topic that does not exactly fit my normal how-to style or is not for a broad audience I publish those mid-week.
I'm not going to list the 10 items here - my goal is not to be spammy - if you are interested in seeing what the gifts are then please check out my blog post
. The 10 items are made up of tools, books, and fun items for little homesteaders and/or the homesteading family.
What I would love to hear from you all in the comments is do you also struggle with the gifts question? And what gifts do you think would be great for a homesteader?

Speaking of Paul... I want to give 1 last shout out to Paul's awesome Permaculture Playing Cards
If you have not seen them yet I highly recommend checking the cards out. Each card features a different topic or person related to permaculture. The artwork is amazing and there are some great tips on each card.
The cards are a fantastic way to start a conversation about permaculture with family and friends.

What Do You Think?
Okay, back to the question - do you struggle with the "what gifts do you want" question? And what stuff do you think would make a great gift for a homesteader?
I would also love to hear from you all who makes their own gifts to give to family and friends! My wife and I made some berry preserves this year from berries we harvested and we have given away other homemade gifts in the past.
I think homemade gifts are a great option. What do you think?
I would love to hear from you! Please leave a comment in this thread and if you are interested check out my blog post
