Handmade gifts are so much fun to give and to receive… I enjoy the time I spend making different things, thinking of the recipient with every stitch or paint stroke.
If you are looking for ideas for handmade gifts, you may want to check out these tutorials I bookmarked a little while ago. The blogs where they are featured are awesome, so you may want to browse around. Make them your own by adding cool trim, handmade labels, changing the fabrics to suit a boy or a man…

Don’t forget to check out my tutorials here. The star table mat is super fast to put together and makes a great gift, too. I made many of them for last Christmas, each with different fabric combinations.
Hopefully, these ideas will get you motivated. In the meantime, I am knitting a pair of socks for my oldest son, finished another block for the afghan (will show you tomorrow), and am hoping to wrap most of the gifts I already made over the weekend…
