I have created these threads in the past and they have been very successful in sharing some awesome homemade gift ideas. So anyone doing anything homemade this year? My husband and I are going to hand sew teddy bears for the two babies in the family. I'm in the process of looking up baby safe patterns at the moment. I'm planting a variety of different seeds including some ferns at the moment so with any luck I might be able to give plant loving family members something from the garden. I've also been going to a lot of local art and craft markets and collecting business cards lately too. So I'm going to be buying a lot of local hand made craft products too. I found a guy who makes beautiful stuff out of Australian wood, including pens, plates, tables, etc. I also found a lady who makes beautiful macrame plant hangers which I know half my family will love. Depending how well the fruit and veggies grow in my garden by Christmas I might be able to make/bake some things for my family too.
