Homemade/Handmade Presents: Are they . . .



  • beautiful and meaningful?
  • okay, but you'd rather have something else usually?
  • cheap and tacky?
  • only okay if the kids are making them?
  • other?
  • pie?

I voted 'other' because I think it depends on what they are. For instance my homemade florentine biscuits always go over well. But I'm awful at all kinds of craft, so if I were to attempt a homemade sofa throw it would be very cheap and tacky :o)

I voted pie, but only if it is homemade pie.

We are at a point where we just don't "need" anything.

Okay, so I guess I was getting all sentimental about meaningful handmade gifts.

I voted 'other,' which would also be my vote if you'd asked the same question about bought presents. You can both make and buy tacky or nice things. It all depends on your taste and the taste of the giver.

If you're lucky (and God really really loves you) they are pie.

:D

I voted other. Because it all depends on the homemade gift, the giftee, and the gifter. The crafter/gifter needs to keep in mind the personality of who they are making the gift for.

I voted pie. Homemade pie rocks! But, really, a present is a gift and the giver is not obligated to give, so whatever they choose to do
