    Default Did anyone receive any homemade gifts this year?

    I know many of us here at the village made homemade gifts this year. I'm curious if any of you received any homemade gifts.

    I received homemade lemon green tea hand soap in a mason jar dispenser. Loved it!

    If you did make handmade gifts were they well received?

    received a plaque from our oldest DD and SIL that DD made. It contains our last name initial. She did a beautiful job on it.

    I also made a throw for a friend, she was extremely excited over it.

    I didn't get or give anything homemade. My grandma got a handmade apron and an ornament from her sister. I was a teeny bit jealous of the apron! Wish I had gotten one.

    Didn't receive any HM gifts. Didn't receive any comments on the gifts that I made for the family - some years are just like that!!

    I made ds19 a zombie kit and he was thrilled with it! Took it to show to friends. I made ds10 a custom creeper Minecraft shirt and made him a bunch of Minecraft figures out of cardstock and he loved them! I had been saving up wine corks for a long time and made dh a cork wreath...he didn't seem too excited over it...oh, well, guess I just wasted my corks! Well, he did hang it up so I get to enjoy the look of it at least. He made me a certificate for a day of his undivided attention doing whatever I want. I liked that!

    I made homemade doggy treats for all of my families dogs who are a huge part of our family. They were very well received (by the people and the dogs!) Although the plan was almost killed when my dog snarfed down a half baking sheet of raw treats in a span of 2 minutes...my fault, I left them within reach. To the store for more whole wheat flour saved the day.
    I also did cornbread/beans in a jar gifts for the men and they seemed to like them.

    I got one homemade gift and it was from my sister; she had a co-worker make me a very pretty knitted beret. I liked it.

    I never received any homemade gifts. I did give an assortment to different people and they seemed to like them.

    We got a wonderful plate of homemade cookies from DH's boss's wife. She makes a ton every year & I look forward to them so much!!

    My daughter in law made me a really cool magnetic message board from a pizza tin. It has a magnetic clip made from a clothes pin, decorated with little colored stones. SO cute! She also made me two ceramic coasters, not sure how, also very nice. (I am a coaster fanatic),

    I made crocheted flowers & my grand daughters & daughters in law picked out their choice of headband & flowers (I bought the head bands) & I custom made them on the spot for them. They were very excited. I intended to get them done & wrapped up, but didn't. They asked me about them & even hung around a few minutes longer than expected while I anchored the flowers to the bands.
