I loved the packaging on this one almost as much as the present itself. The darling box says "Baby, It's Cold Outside" with it's cute red and black velvet polka dot bow and handmade gift tag.
Inside was this darling handmade scarf
My sister spends hours hand embroidering cute pillows. I am the happy recipient of many of hers. This one with red work has red and white ticking on the sides and back. It is very precious.
The two pins are made of fabric and have burned edges, the necklace is made of fabric also. The colorful pin is made from fringe and honestly goes with every color I have put it on. They are great.
This watch is a nice addition to my jewelry collection and is also handmade.
I think these headbands are adorable on so many. However, I tried one on and it quickly made me look very dorky and silly. I decided they were best left to others. I bought them for my granddaughters.
These silhouettes of my grandchildren were made by my daughter from photographs she took then applied to a canvas board. I think it is very clever.
This spoon was not actually handmade since it is an antique but it got a new use by adding magnets to the back and is really sweet on a magnetic board. I love old silver.
I got a lot of great ideas for next year's gifts from these. I hope you have too.
