Give gifts from your kitchen save time, money

Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Residents interested in learning more about creating their own gifts are invited to attend a one-day workshop from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 12 at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service.

“Not only will our participants learn to make a wide variety of wonderful gifts,” said Amanda Horn, a registered dietitian and the Oklahoma County OSU Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Educator, “they will also take home three gifts that they actually make during the workshop, ready to give to someone else.”

Workshop participants also will take home a cookbook full of recipes and gift ideas that can be used year-round.

“Buying gifts for people isn’t always that easy to do,” Horn said. “We live in a society where so many people already have so much that sometimes it’s hard to find anything they really need. That’s why homemade gifts are so special and unique. Everyone can use them and they’re always appreciated.”

The gifts being made during the workshop will each offer time-saving as well as money-saving elements.

“If you like the idea of making gifts for those on your holiday list,” Horn said, “this is the workshop for you. Not only will you learn everything you need to know to make a wide variety of gifts, but you will also have a lot of fun while you do it.”

The workshop will be at the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension Service, located at 930 N. Portland, and has a $15 registration fee to cover the cost of supplies.
