Hi all

Just wondering if anyone chooses to make gifts for people for Christmas/birthday etc and if so, what do you make? I enjoy crafting (mainly cardmaking and occasional scrap booking) but have been thinking that I may try my hand at something new this year.

Any ideas or tips?

Huge thanks :D :D xx

hello good morning!

have a look on pintrest under diy and crafts there are always some great ideas,
I enjoy making hampers for peoples including little things that they enjoy along with jars of homemade sweets and chocolates (always goes down well) in the hampers I always include something personal such as photos I have taken through out the year of family members for a nice personal touch, and it's not to pricey :)

I'm also quite an avid sewer so like to make home furnishings such as pillow cases, bedding, door hangers and pet cushions, I'm learning to make pjs at the mo.

I make crocheted jewellery. I crochet the chains and make my own beads and buttons. Knitted and crocheted clothes, scarves etc. Started making some quilled cards. I've also made needle felted gifts. Oh and knitted dolls for my kids and nieces. Love making things and they last years.

I haven't done this year but last year I made quite a few bits, I made bunting and put all my nieces/nephew names on it, they also had a little hanging room tidy and I made scarfs and snoods for my sisters/mother in law and my Mum, I am going to knit a hat for my best friend baby who is due just before christmas and if I have time his older sister may get one two :D

Looking forward to seeing the pics. Happy crafting :) :D
