Here is a gift you can work on year ’round. Paracord bracelets are a cool gift that you can make with your hands. If you are in the United States or would like to send gifts to deployed U.S. troops, Operation Gratitude accepts donations of paracord bracelets every day. They like to include bracelets in all of their care packages, so they need a lot of bracelets!

They have some special requests for colors and styles, so if you do want to donate to Operation Gratitude, check out their website here for further info.
