  • I love giving handmade gifts. This year for Christmas I made my sister a couple of mosaic picture frames made from stained glass and mirrors. I found some fun pictures from when we were kids, enlarged them and had them printed in black and white (which I find more aesthetically pleasing)and put them in the frames.
  • I have given many hand made gifts. They are usually Native American arts and crafts, following the traditions and designs of my people.
  • I've made and given multiple cross-stitches, a latch hook rug or two, a couple of baby blankets, some portraits (I prefer to work in pencil, so they're not real fancy), and I'm sure the generic kid-things to give away, like friendship bracelets, dumb decorated "pencil containers" and the like.
  • Yes.Usually wheel-thrown, handpainted pottery or a drawing.Whatever I think they'd like to have inflicted on them:)
  • One Christmas in the '70's my kids and I made all our gifts. My son had nearly died that year in an auto accident and I just felt like doing meaningful things. I still do home made food items at Christmas, but other than that, I don't feel there's a lot of appreciation on the left coast for home made. Just my sense.

It's an inexpensive way to let someone know that you care.

  • Last year for Christmas, I made each one of of children a quilt designed just for them with fabric from things they like. Each one of the grandkids got a small blacket just for thier size. It was a lot of work, but nothing makes you feel better when you make things out of love. I have 5 grown children and 9 grandkids, it took almost the whole year to get it all together and completed. I was working on them right up till Christmas eve.
  • Each year I make my two best friends gifts. This past year I made them hand made "note cards and matchng envelopes". I love to make things like that. One year I made them calander books and I took it to an Office Max and had them spyral bound. And I even made them scrapbooks with photos from our childhood...the problem with that one was I wanted it spyral bound and I made the mistake of taking it to Kinkos! I gave them specific instructions on how I wanted it bound...I even left spaces at the end of each page for the spyral binding to be put...the idiot in the shop bound it on the other side of the book and she put the binding through all of my photos and it also looked like a backwards book...it couldn't be open the way I had made it to be...I had to do two scrapbooks all over!! They "were" going to charge me for this mess! But they didn't!! I didn't even get an apology from the stupid person who did it!! I wont go back to Kinko's ever again! But that has not stopped me from making hand made gifts. I do it every year. I make knitted scarves and hats. I make embroidered hand towels and I am right now making placemats and matching napkins for my 96 year old friend!! I think a hand made gift means a lot more, don't get me wrong...a nice store bought gift is great too!

  • Yes I did. When I was a little girl, in school we were given clay with which we could make whatever we wanted to. In those days every male adult smoked, so I made an ashtray for my dad. I painted it festively and took it home and presented it to him proudly. He loved it..he used it. However, we did not have a kiln in school in which to fire it..my mom plunged it in hot soapy water to wash it, and it disintegrated! :(

  • I love making gifts for people. Simple but elegant gifts are always nice, and when you make something you could also buy its wonderful to see the look on peoples faces when you say you made it. Jewlery is easy, painting things is always fun and simple sewing is nice too.
  • I give hand made gifts frequently. Personally, I think someone who takes the time to make a gift for someone instead of just purchasing something is really thinking of that person. I have made many things, such as crochet afghans, quilts, novelty pillowcases, food baskets and others. I enjoy getting something homemade too, so maybe that is why I like giving them. Just a more personal touch to gift giving.

Have done crochet - blankets, baby clothes. Received some also. My nephew carves in ostrich and emu eggs, bone, wood. Makes beautiful night lights, jewelry, statues, even made me a cane. A homemade gift generally comes from the heart. It's more expensive because it was more than handing over money for something. It takes the persons time, imagination, and love to create.

  • Lotsa times! My favourite, and the most time consuming, was a miniature of Legolas from the Lord of the Rings movies.

When I graduated, I gave Legolas to my friend who was then obsessed with the pretty elf-boy. My dickhead parents broke the other two, saying they were my "false idols". *eyeroll*...fundies.
