I love making homemade crafts and gifts to give people. For me, making something to give someone else is like giving them part of your creativity. Not many people craft or make things from scratch anymore, so I think I’m a bit of a dying breed. My children have seen me make crafts and gifts to no end for years. They honestly believe I can make anything, including motorized toys.

A New Perspective on Homemade Gifts

This year, I asked my oldest child, Corbin what he wanted to do to buy Christmas presents for his family. He told me he thought about making some things since, “Homemade gifts are the best.”

I was actually a little choked up that gifts homemade made him feel that way. Sometimes I feel really burdened that I am always making thank you gifts homemade, romantic gifts homemade, and any gift homemade. I do this because I can’t afford to buy anything nice for anyone.

Without my ideas and creative gift projects, I wouldn’t be able to bless people with anything during Christmas or special events.

Homemade Gifts From the One I Love


In the spirit of crafting, my darling husband, Austin, made me this beautiful necklace for Christmas. I am showcasing it in my picture. Let’s just be clear, Austin is NOT a crafter.

This necklace means the world to me, because my husband spent the time it took to buy multiple bags of beads and figure out how to turn them into a presentable DIY necklace.

I was very blessed this past year by my husband making a gift for me with his hands. Not only that, my children have shown me that all of my passions are not in vain. They do understand what makes me tick and they appreciate it as well.

Homemade Gifts Are the Best
