Giving handmade is such a good feeling, isn't it? Last year I was a bit slack (and time poor) and my Christmas gift giving was mainly bought goodies, but this year I want to try really hard and put together a few handmade gifts for Christmas. Of course, handmade gifts don't suit everybody in the world (and that's okay) so they'll be a few nice books, food related items and experiences (movie tickets, etc..) on my list too.
I've made a good start with my niece's ripple blanket, but I do need to make one for my nephew too! Oh and that delicious yarn above is going to be turned into a handmade gift too, for a relative. But, I have a big job ahead of me working out what to organise for everybody else on my list.
Incase you're thinking of giving handmade too, here a few things that have caught me eye:
A rice heat therapy bag
Grandma's favourite knitted dishcloths
Patchwork journal cover
Fruity button embroidery napkins - love these & so simple!
Purl Bee fabric balls - for little people.
Felt flower satchels
Crochet Home Sweet Home cushion
My favourite pick - Rope coil baskets. Love!
I'm going to start a handmade gift list this month and perhaps a new board on Pinterest. I'm also going to keep my eyes peeled over at Etsy, because sometimes it's nice to buy handmade too.
Righty-ho, I'd better get organised!
