    Default How do you feel about handmade gifts?

    As the title suggests, what do you think when someone gifts you something they have made themselves?

    I would be touched that they took the time to make something for me. I assume most people would be the same.

    I think it's lovely
    So much more personal and thoughtful than something store-bought.

    I like them better. A present that has thought put into it is always better. Plus homemade is a lot of effort and usually not cheaper, so I would be more touched.

    I love handmade gifts and have given many over the years. Especially when I was a dirt poor student. I made my sister a voucher for her bridal shower which included a full body massage (I'm a trained massage therapist), a pedi + mani and she loved it! Plus all it cost me was the cardboard I used to make the voucher itself

    I like them, mostly.

    I'd be very thankful if someone made me home-made foods this year... but a little let-down that I can't really enjoy that sort of thing anymore. I'd be disappointed that I had to watch DD and DP eat it all instead. lol.
