The first chapter, 'Gifts from the Garden' left me with no desire to try any of the techniques given. The photos of the finished products were large and beautiful, but there were no step-by-step photos - only the finished product. The section on fragrant plants and spices was helpful however, as it also told what each scent symbolized and what effects it has on an individual. The second chapter, 'Gifts that Pamper' I enjoyed much better. It gave recipes for bottled oils, soaps, body powders, rosewater, foot balm and lip balm. 'Gifts from the Kitchen' was also informative with recipes for breads and jellys as well as cooking oils and teas. The chapter 'Sewn Gifts' was fun to look at but I don't sew, so... The final chapter, 'More Great Gifts' was also fun to look at and it gave good ideas for odds-n-end gifts like sachets and scented frames. All in all, it would be a great book to borrow, I think. You can easily look at the photos of the finished products and go create your own, individualized gifts.
