If you’re the crafty type, do a Carlo move and make your own wooden coasters. After making a geometric wall in his Mom’s neighborhood fruit and shake bar, Carlo sawed wooden hexagon pieces and made them into coasters. Painting them with bright hues could bring you joy every time you use them. Just like Mama, who now has cheerful looking wooden coasters to use when serving her delicious fruit shakes to customers, most of them already her sukis.

Making your own things instead of buying them gives a feeling of accomplishment. There are some people who go as far as making their own Christmas gifts to give to loved ones. I admire those people because you know they spent a lot of time making something for you, when it would have been easier to go to a store and buy the gifts. Even handwritten letters are such a rarity these days. It feels more intimate.
