It depends on the recipient.
Some people have no appreciation for handmade.
Personally, I love handmade gifts.

Handmade gifts are lovely! We've so far received a crocheted baby blanket and know that there is a handmade quilt and some knitted clothes on the way. I'm touched that people would spend their valuable time making such lovely things for us.

I would have absolutely loved a hand made quilt!!! I have a beautiful girlfriend that made home made jams and chutneys for Christmas last year, wrapped in brown paper and twine with a little sprig of rosemary. It was devine, and I'm stealing the idea this Christmas. I adore handmade things, but I know some people that wouldn't appreciate it. For those people I wouldn't bother and would just buy something for them.

My dd is almost 6 and the handmade gifts are the only things I have really kept
She has a patchwork dog with her name embroided on, a quilt which is double sided, few knitted blankets/outfits.

I love handmade!!! In fact I am starting a shop on etsy.com selling handmade bibs, burb cloths, baby shoes, toys etc. There is a huge market for them.
