I love home made gifts. They are so much more meaningful. I don't make a lot myself because I'm not that artistic. I am however making my moms this year because she hurt her back really bad, so I'm making her a spa basket.

that is a great idea make sure you add a tea cup and a sample of tea or coffee for her to sip while relaxing in the spa

get a cute teapot that you heat on the stove top tilt the lid open fill with little instant coffee samples you can usually find a box with samples at walmart in the coffee isle find some cookies wrap them in colorful cellophane tie a cute mug to the handle wrap the whole thing in cellophane add a bow and there's a sweet gift Have fun making your gifts

that is so nice! its so much more personal. and its great that you can make money with them, too. i like to make gifts, but sometimes they come out badly, so i just throw them out and buy something.

I would love to have the time to make my gifts. That never seems to happen. I realy enjoy receiving gifts that are from the heart and just wern't something that you stopped in at the mall to pick up in a hurry.

I started by picking up small gifts when they were on sale and when an occasion came up I had the makings for a basket I would put several things in a basket or cute box put a bow on it and woo hoo I had a gift in a matter of minutes Try it you will be amazed at your new gift for that someone special

I like to make beaded jewelry as gifts. It is one of my hobbies. It takes time however so it doesn't work for last-minute gifts.

I make some gifts for my family memebers. I really like sewing so last year I made my daughter and neices all matching dresses. They loved them. I also sew the kids winter hats and mittens from Polar Fleece. I mad my kids Nemo ones a few years back and got a lot of compliments on them.
