We don't buy our family Christmas presents

We are professional crafters, and make the whole extended family presents for Christmas. Even the kids get into it. We make them at least one handmade gift too. It seems to go well with everyone.

We make high quality things. They don't look cheap at all. Or homemade, Every year everyone waits for our ornaments, we use those as tags for everyone instead of name tags its a ornament. Ill have to see if my husband can send me pics. I had some on my compture but my husband had to put a new hard drive in it for me.

I think that's awesome, every family has their own traditions and I think yours is great. I wish I was crafty and could do something that didn't look like my 2 year old do it lol. I bet your family loves them.

I don't either. I make baskets for everyone that are filled with cookies and breads that I make myself. I used to feel bad doing it, but now everyone asks for the baskets specifically and asks for certain items to be included. It works pretty well.

I would love to see pictures.
Can you like this when you post them?
How long does it normally take to do it?

I make lots of presents. In my experience, the people I give them to appreciate and use them more than anything I've ever bought them.
I do soaps, salsas, candles, funky hat and scarf sets, sweaters, tapestries, etc...
