love homemade gifts!!
So glad to hear most people appreciate handmade gifts! I started the thread because I've recently taken up quilting so I was reading a quilting forum and was amazed at some of the reactions people had received when they've given a quilt. Ranging from sympathy that they must be on hard times not to be able to afford to buy something, up to criticising workmanship, and even saying they had seen the same thing in Walmart (American forum).
It made me so sad to think that someone could be given something that took countless hours to make and wish they had got some mass-produced thing instead. Not to mention people can be so rude sometimes!! I suppose I will need to carefully select who I give my quilts to!
Give me a quilt! All I've ever wanted was a handmade quilt.
I would be DELIGHTED with any handmade gift, much nicer and more thoughtful than the generic body products I receive that I can't use.
Every year mum's best friend gives me a basket of home made goodies, definitely something I look forward to every year!

My mum is a quilter so I know how many hours and hours go into them. I don't have the skill, nor patience, so I would be delighted if someone gave me one. So many crafts seem to be dying out and it's a lovely tradition to keep alive.
I was so touched both times that people spent that much time on a present for my child that I cried!!
I have a friend that quilts so know they take a lot of time and money to do. They are a very special gift if you ask me.
I have been given homemade quilts and they are two of my most precious items! It's amazing how personal you can make them.
WOW! You clever thing! My aunt is a quilter and made one for DH and myself for our wedding. It's been on our bed since our wedding night. I can't imagine not loving a homemade gift, even if it's not perfect, that's what makes it so special .
Best of luck with your future gifts.
