    One of my favorite homemade gifts to receive is homemade lip balm. My sister makes some that is to die for!

    I also love getting homemade crocheted dish clothes for washing dishes, they last so much longer than the store bought ones and work better.

    Favorite Gift to give: Homemade gift baskets with mixes. Everyone always loves them!

    Favorite Homemade Gift to Receive: I love getting Herb Infused Oils to cook with. My sister in law has an amazing garden and last year gave me an entire set of Herb Infused Oils (Rosemary, Lavender, Calendula, & Thyme) They were amazing! She put them in a basket lined with bread dipping mixes and a loaf of homemade sourdough. It was gorgeous and tasty!
    Rolling with the Punches, folks, nothing to see here...

    My favorite Christmas gifts to give are blankets. I make 2-3 every year for those who have little ones and it's lovely to see them being passed down to siblings as the years pass.
    We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.

    Best homemade gift I ever got was a homemade quilt made out of Harley Davidson shirts that I had collected for years from various visits worldwide. My wife gave them to my mother in law and she made me a quilt out of them. It served two purposes, it uncluttered my closet and turned my fairly useless shirts into something I could enjoy daily.

    The best homemade gift I ever received, was a quilt that my grandmother had mad the me. I remember laying on the floor listening to the radio or later watching TV, with my quilt covering me keeping warm and toasty.

    About 8 years ago, my daughter had the cutest pair of jeans. they had colorful flowers embroidered from the knees to the ankles. (she was about 5) the knees wore out. I cut right below the hole, both legs. sewed the top together inside out to make a seam. then the kids filled the ouch with rice, cinnamon and crushed cloves. took old lace, and sewed the seam shut with the lace. I didn't fold it in since it was to thick and my machine wouldn't handle it. it was designed to be a hot pad that smelled when heated. we gave both sets to grandma for Christmas. she still has them and they still smell fairly nice. when her knees start to hurt, she will heat it up in the microwave and rest it on her knees. She still talks about how much that has helped her and the flowers still look nice.

    The best homemade gift I've gotten was a Christmas ornament. My daughter painted a patriotic teddy bear in great detail and gave it to me on Christmas. She knew I loved teddy bears (I kept a Christmas tree up in the bedroom, all decorated with teddies), and I tend to be on the patriotic side. Also, I had done such ornaments in the past, but it was wonderful to get one from her (such thought had been put into it!!).

    This year I made vanilla extract for the first time. They are one of the best gifts that I've given to my baker friends. They love it!! I'll be making more.
