  • I wish I had the time to make everyone's gifts! Before I got my current job and I was only working part time, I planned on making mittens for my whole family for Christmas this year, but time got away from me and now I'm just going to make socks for my two sisters - I'll buy everything else. Maybe next year I can plan ahead and do the mittens.

  • I just made my sister a necklace this morning...but I also bought her several little things...so both. Home made jams and soups are great ideas as well.

  • I do both. I love to make gifts, but I know that some people don't like homemade gifts, so I don't make them for everyone, and there are some people I give both to.

  • I'm making fudge for some people and am going to try to make caramels as well. Should be interesting.

  • I made apple butter and ornaments for most of the adults in my family last year. I plan on making apple butter again and I'm refinishing my glider as a gift my sister's nursery. We buy gifts too.

  • Store bought and some homemade.
    Like last year I bought Scentsy hand sanitizer, and then little elf hats and belts for the bottles. So it was sort of a combination. Store bought with a crafty touch.

  • Define recycled. Do you mean regifting? If so, can you define that as well? I have some things that I did not have to pay for that I have no need or want of, so I will give them to people that would appreciate such items. Is that recycling? If so, I'm doing all three of those options listed in your question.

  • Store bought. I'm not crafty to make something.
