Some cool Homemade Gifts images:

Chris’s grandmother sent homemade quilts to him and his brother for Christmas. We both squeaked with cuteness when we saw the embroidery.
According to her letter, every patch was made from old clothing of hers and Grandpa’s. It is all polyester. All. Grandma likes orange and acrylics a bit more than I do.

We like to keep Christmas simple around here, so in terms of what we give our close friends and family every year, it is usually homemade and/or consumable.
We don’t do the Santa thing with our kids, but they still have plenty of fun and magic during this season. They like helping with gift-making (and taste-testing so that they can tell the recipients how good the stuff we made is, with sincerity!), handing out gifts to the people they love, and of course they get lots of fun things too.
Today we tested our two jar recipes, and then filled & decorated the jars.
