I always struggle with the same decision every year. Should I buy or make handmade gifts for Christmas? I CAN make gifts, and have in the past. Sometimes it’s a great option, and sometimes a store-bought gift can be just as thoughtful, and save you the additional stress in an already-busy season.
Which lends the question: Handmade or Homemade…. what should I do?
Do I WANT to give handmade gifts this holiday season? This chart is a little insight into what my decision looks like from year to year. There’s really no right or wrong way to handle it, you’re giving something great to someone you love, and that’s that.
And you know, with so many small businesses selling their own handmade items (insert elbow nudge here), you could always give a gift made by someone else’s hand, if you’re looking for that unique gift, but don’t have the time to do it yourself!
Will you be giving handmade, store-bought, or a little of both this season? Leave me a comment (with a link if you have one) with what you’re giving this year. I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
