Yes.....I'm great at sewing, crochet, and I have a green thumb (great houseplant arrangements). I know it's appreciated and far better than what I can afford to spend. It's a gift from the heart.

I've done several types of homemade gifts: this year I'm knitting vintage stockings to continue an old family tradition in my partner's family from the 1950's; I'v emade crochet gifts (wall hangings, hot pads in the past); I make up pre-planted bulb pots (this year its the little dutch iris bulbs; have done tulips, amaryllis). And this year's stocking stuffer for some is a decorated ponderosa pine cone! ;)

I love homemade/handmade gifts, don't you? I start making vanilla extract in the fall (so easy - vanilla beans marinated in vodka); tied fleece blankets (no sewing required - I buy the material when it's on sale so it's easier on the budget); and homemade granola (I make 2 batches at once and they divide up into half-a dozen baggies w/ some left over for me!).

Yes. I love to print favorite images or sayings and frame them in pretty Dollar Tree frames. For the cost of your printer ink and $1 you have a unique, custom gift!

I knit things from time to time, but for the most part, I buy my presents. I do wrap the kids' gifts with paper from the cartoon section of the newspaper, though. Does that count? emoticon

I have been working on sewing presents for family/friends. I was wondering how many others make their presents instead of buying them.
