Gifts from kids, I can see the oohs and ahhs, but what about a home made creation from another adult? Baby blankets or scarfs...picture frames, scrapbooks, a real wood dresser? How about a home made DVD? I've been making them for a few years now for family to watch the kids grow up since we're military and stationed away from home. I go all out into detail...even decorating the DVD case and burning a label on it...intros, closing credits...all that fun stuff that I put time and effort into.
It gets shelved after one viewing. Heck, the case gets tossed out and placed in a binder or a sleeve for space issues. I'm not sure it's appreciated at this point if its not cared for the way I cared enough to put all that into it...but I'm still doing it because I'm proud of my kids and love to show them off to family.
Would you enjoy it or appreciate something that was home made by an adult?

How many movies that you go buy do you watch more than once? Maybe you are putting a little too much into the packaging. I would love to get all my photos and movies on DVD. I can see the point of a proper label. But if you are decorating the box to the point that storage is a problem then just stop doing that part.
Personally, I quilt. My SIL does beautiful crochet. If somebody around here would get serious about his woodworking I would make him a list, but please no macaroni crafts from adults!
