Now that it’s officially December, everyone has just one thing in mind: Christmas, and more importantly, Christmas shopping.

Whether you’re a kid working on perfecting your list or a parent trying to tick off every last item, these next few weeks are sure to be a wild ride for the majority of the audience.

But it doesn’t have to be.

It’s an old saying (and a bit cheesy), but the best gifts are often those from the heart, and what better way to show someone you love them than by doing something of your own? hands? Giving a gift is usually cheaper and certainly more creative than going to a large chain store and buying something off the shelf, and you don’t even have to leave Concord to get everything you need. . It doesn’t just have to be gifts, either – you can also get crafty and create your own decorations, cards, and even gift tags to attach to all of those gifts.

We stopped by Art Plus (249 Loudon Road) last week and found they had all kinds of supplies perfect for making your own Christmas gifts, decorations and cards.

Perhaps more plentiful than anything else at Art Plus are holiday themed stamps for making your own Christmas cards. There are dozens of designs to choose from, including snowmen, pines and pinecones, reindeer, wrapped gifts, kids playing in the snow, and, of course, the Jolly One itself.

If you want to make cards, you will need some sort of card stock on which to apply the stamps. Fortunately, they also have dozens of options for card material at Art Plus, with several different designs, colors, sizes, and textures to choose from.

If stamps aren’t really your thing, you can also try stencils. There are many Christmas themed metal stencils out there, which you can use to make cards or decorate your own wrapping paper. Stencils may take a little longer than stamps, but for some, that’s all the point.

There are also fun items worth checking out, like the handbags by the counter. Each paper bag comes with $ 50 rubber stamps for just $ 10, the only problem is you don’t know what’s in the bag until you buy it (although the general theme of the contents of the bag is written on the front, so do not enter completely blind).

For those who like their craft supplies all bundled together, there are several kits available as well. One kit has everything you need to make paper ornaments, another has the supplies for a banner style garland, and another kit will help you make ornaments that look like stained glass. Regardless of the skill level (or enthusiasm) of the craftsman, there is something at Art Plus that anyone can use.

In addition to all of these Christmas-specific items, you can also find a plethora of painting and drawing supplies that you can use to create your own works of art to give as gifts or hang around your home. It all depends on your creativity and your art, and how seriously you want to take the vacation, literally.

Art Plus has already hosted its last crafting class of the year, but don’t let that crush your Christmas spirit. If you are new to the craft or just need a few tips or ideas ask someone who works at Art Plus – we have always had only informative, friendly and helpful interactions with the staff there , and we expect them to be able to offer you all the advice you need.
