Homemade Gifts? Yes or No?

I love making homemade gifts for people.  1) I am broke so it saves a lot of money to make things myself.  2) I try to put a lot of thought, time and energy into what I make. 

 This Christmas I made a mason jar candle holders made with book pages, a chalk board wine bottle, Body Scrub, Body oil, Harry Potter Coffee mug,  "True Love Was Born In a Stable" canvas art,  Wooden plaques with a collage of pictures depending on who it was for, Apple Pie Moonshine, A Chalk Board Beer Stine, Packets of my Chili spice mix, and an apron for my Mom with the logo of her new business on it. 

How do you feel about homemade gifts?  People say they love them when I give it to them... but my family is awesome and would lie to make me feel better about something like this. 

Anyone have any favorite homemeade gifts that you have given/received?

I love making them. I think it shows more thought and care than a store bought gift.

Yes.  Homemade gifts are awesome.  I'm sure your family really does love them, because you made them.

I love homemade gifts!

My favorite homemade gift was a bath basket my sister made for me.
It had my favorite homemade candles, bubble bath, lotions and face scrubs. It was a little slice of heaven. She it had some scrunches, & a nail kit.

I made these a few years ago ... never did wood burning before. All hand drawn. I used colored pencils to color them in. 

I've also made jewelry (no pictures) ... bracelets and earrings.
