 This year I'm doing all homemade gifts except for my dd.  She will be getting homemade gifts too but im buying some too.  I'm excited but extremely nerveous about getting everything done, plus I'm embroidering all of our stockings, makeing an embroidered advent calendar and hopefully makeing a new tree skirt.  For my dd, i'm makeing her some doll "wipes" and fabric diapers for her dolls, some felt food and some jewelry.  for my Dad im makeing him a plastic canvas desk organizer (it's going to be a barn tissue box cover, a silo pencil cup and a little fenced in area for a post it note holder)  and a wooden clock I saw on pinterest, for my nieces and nephews I'm going to make plastic canvas banks and then braclets for all the women and keychains for all the males.  Ugh lol.  do you do home made gifts?  if so what are you planning to make?  oh and im bakeing a bunch of goodies for my best friend and her family lol.

Not all homemads but I am making some.

Unpaper towels, a car seat neck strap for my Dad, swoop bags for the kids, and upcycled stockings from sweaters.

Last year I made baskets with homemade laundry detergent, sugar scrub, dryer balls, and unpaper towels.

I usually like to make gifts for family for the most part.  There are a few things that I can't make, movies, wii games, then I hit up the sales. I have made soaps, photo gifts.

 normally I might make a few handmade items, but money is extremely tight this year.  all the gifts that im makeing I already have 99% of the stuff needed to make them.

Nope. I rarely make anything for family as gifts. The majority do not appreciate it. I will handmake things for some friends though.

I am making some gifts this year for a few family members. I am going to paint them some coffee cups.

I'm making some gifts, but not all of them.  I'm making scarves, Xmas ornaments, bookmarks, dish towels, no-sew blankets, etc.

Yes the gransparents and maybe my SILs are all getting homemade gift from the kids. We had a bunch of unexpected home repairs this year so money is tight

That's the basic idea of what we're doing too, but I'm stumped on our 2 and 11 yr old nieces.
