    I love making homemade gifts. Their something from the heart and in my opinion are more thoughtful. My family love my homemade gift baskets and personalized items.

      Thanks for your response. It does take time to do this but it can be more meaningful too.

    I love making gift for people. It's both a great way to show appreciation, and a chance for creative expression...and it allow flexibility in tailoring what we make to exact specifications.  I remember one time when my husband and I first started dating, he mentioned that he'd love to find a tie that had a coffee coup on it, with the smoke from the coffee rising up the length of the I painted one for him. :0)

    Often, I design my own greeting cards, ornaments, bookmarks, etc. :0)

    I love making gifts, it's cheaper, more fun and feels better to give. Just don't forget to put down time and effort into your gift, nobody want a bad drawing that you put down a few minutes to do....atleast not from a adult big_smile

    I've made my own presents for people in the past, for both Christmas and birthdays! I am generally a very artsy/crafty person, and I love making things. Plus it often costs less too, and the person appreciates it more, since you took time and effort to make it smile
