Handmade for the Holidays

My kids are still pretty little to be making handmade gifts for the holidays.  I do remember doing it for my parents though.  I wonder if my parents appreciated all my hard work or not.  I am just kidding.  I know they do since I appreciated all the hard work that Madison put into this handmade ornament she made at school for Christmas last year:

When we decorated the Christmas tree, we definitely put it up.  I made sure I saved it so we could put it on the tree this year.  I have a special gift the kids are working on for the grandma’s for Christmas this year.  All I can tell you is that it will require some art skills.  I don’t want to give away much more than that.

What handmade gifts have you received or have you given?

  1. Wow! Those are really cute handmade gifts. How sweet!

  3. Very nice presents.

  4. Oh how cute!

  5. Oh, I think that every child should make an ornament for the tree and get it out for all the years to come. We all have them in our family and I love them.

  6. We made painted pots, greeting cards – it was always so appreciated

  7. Those turned out really well!! We did handpainted ceramic ornaments one year (trust me, they sound prettier than what they actually were with a team of boys) and last year made homemade candies to give away.

    This year? We might just do something simple – lol – it was a lot of work!

  8. I liked the one on which you've engraved a baby girl's photo. And I intend to make one for my younger sis on her up coming birthday :razz:

  9. Pretty nice gifts.

    I believe in some two years my girl will do that kind of gifts. For the moment she gives me "the whales" (something oval drawn on a piece of paper)…

  10. Wow! Those are really cute handmade gifts!!!!
