    Best Handmade gift ever received would be a polar fleece blanket with horses on it. It wasn't the design or complexity that made it the best, it was that it was from the kids that I'd babysat for a few years who made it for my graduation.

    The best handmade gift(s) came from my grandmother. She was an awesome crocheter! I received afghans and many doilies, table runners and pillow tops and I cherish every single one of them. Now my mom has started gifting us with her quilting projects she completed over the years. I am very fortunate to have such talent in my family.

    a handmade card from my daughters.
  32. Heather Burdett
    Friday, November 7th, 2014
    Honestly, I really cherish all homemade gifts because the person giving it thought more about what you might like and make it. They did not see something on a rack somewhere... they thought, planned, and executed your gift with you in mind.

    When I was about 10 years old, we did not have much money. New school clothes were not in the budget.
    One day, my Aunt & Uncle visited from far away and brought me a box of the most adorable skirts & jumper that my teenage cousin had made for me! They were the prettiest colors, the latest style, and fit perfectly!

    I have received so many lovely handmade things. Probably the most unexpected and most touching was a set of beautiful homemade aprons a friend made. Not just for me. She made one for me, my mother, my 2 daughters, and my 2 daughters' 18" dolls. I was shocked speechless at her generosity and love for me.

    My mom made me a set of napkins that we use every day - 2 each of 4 different patterns, so now each of us has our "own" napkin that we just reuse until it's dirty, with a back-up set for wash day. Of course, now we're a family of 5, so for this year I've asked my mom for some more so that the youngest (currently too young for her own napkin) will have her own print.

    I've had my faithful Kenmore for years, but some time I will probably need a more modern, computerized sewing machine. It would be neat to win one!

    The best handmade gift I can remember was a simple clover-shaped cloth with rickrack around the edges and a basket to go with it to keep rolls and biscuits warm. I used that for ages and was even able to trace around it to make others.

    i have 2 favorite handmade gifts from growing up: first by my neighbor, second by a woman from an ALF i worked for. my neighbor adopted my siblings and i as grandkids since she had none. my son sleeps with a heart shaped pillow she made by hand with gingham and lace and my name hand embroidered on it. it's about 35 years old. the woman from the ALF was 99 years old and knit me a beautiful orange lap blanket that both of my boys were swaddled in as babies.

    My daughter takes pottery lessons and she has made me some incredible things. My favorite is a plate with her hand print on it and she decorated it to look like a turkey. I use it every year for Thanksgiving. I love it.

    a crocheted blanket when my son was in children's hospital. I only had clothes on my back and I still have it and love it. A women't group made them and gave them away.

    From my 14 year old daughter...
    Envelopes with special messages in them for single moments when I'm feeling sad, depressed, fat, anxious, worried, etc. I can't look in the envelopes until I need a pick-me-up from the mood I'm in at that moment. So amazing! I cried such happy tears when I opened the gift...so much so, that I couldn't even read them out loud. :)
    Thanks Jozee...I love you!

    I would have to say the blankets my mom made for my children. A close second is my magnetic advent calendar my Aunt made for us. My kids absolutely love it and can't wait to get it out every year.

    My husband is an artist, so I am lucky to receive many handmade gifts but I think the best one was the mother's day card that he and my daughter made when she was about five and had just started writing herself. It was so great to see how proud she was of making something special for me.

    Quilts, quilts and more quilts - I've never owned a store bought blanket! My Grammie made them when I was little and now my Mom makes them..... I love them all so much! I even started making some - last year I made a little quilt for a friends daughter and this year I'd like to make her an I Spy quilt.
    Thanks for the great giveaway!
