  • I appreciate any homemade gift by an adult if it is well made, especially food items! Those save me time and disappear! I have never received something I didn't like but I dont' receive many either.

  • I absolutely love homemade gifts! I think that it means that the person took time out of their day to really sit down and think about me and what I would like, and then even more time to actually make the gift. No matter what it is, any gift that's from the heart is just lovely.

  • I prefer homemade gifts over store bought, it is more personal and more thought out. Very much more appriciated in my book.

  • I love them!!! When my son was born my mom helped my little brother knit him a hat. My mom passed away a few months ago and it's really cool having something like that for him!! So when he gets older I can tell him "grandma and uncle mikey made that just for u"!!!

  • No not really!! I prefer someone to give me a gift with a gift receipt that way I can return or exchange it for something I don't like it.

  • If it is something that had thought to it, yes, I love it. My grandmother on the other hand gives us useless handmade stuff that just builds up and takes up space.

  • I have unfortunetly been on the giving end of some of these unwanted "homemade" gifts. I think it is best to think about the person that you are giving the gift to. Some people love the thought that it takes to make a gift and some people consider "home made" gifts a cheap choice or tacky. Guess ya just have to know the person well enough to get them what they like and enjoy. I personally love homemade gifts!!! ..most of the time. LOL
