My daughter brought home a beautiful picture and it listed 5 different things about me and why she loves me! Her nursery school teacher did this for all the moms for Mother's Day! Inexpensive and perfect!!

The best handmade gift I ever received was a collection of cd copies and mix cd's, and she drew a cover that matched the original artwork of each album cover and her own original designs for the mix cd's. they are so colorful, it was such a an awesome idea - so creative!

My youngest sister made me a few when she was little. She's 15 years younger than myself and I still have a couple of them- a green glass ball ornament with plastic beads glued on, and a kind of snowman she sewed together with my mom. I also have a card my dad made me once which I really liked because it was so unlike him, making it really special.

Thank you so much for including Giggles Galore "Thanks for Helping Me Grow" flower pot as inspiration for a fun teacher gift. Our teacher loved her gift and proudly displays it in her classroom!

Homemade fingerless mittens, made from an old sweater w/ felted hearts on each cuff. Made by my babysitter, I wear them most days in the winter.

A little box carved out of two bars of soap. The outline of a star was carved into the top of it, and the shape was filled with dirt to contrast the cream-colored soap. Useful, fragrant, and handmade!

Best homemade gifts are always so thoughtful and usually the creator has invested a bit of themselves...: anything from a child (especially my own) !! Homemade ornaments that connect with my personality and love of family... thinking of round bird cage like ornament with dried flowers, a blue bird and ribbon inside... the country mouse that sits atop a 2 liter beverage bottle.... ceramic angels... crocheted throw... embrodered bookmarks... wow, this post has helped me remember a lot of lovely gifts! Thank You!!
