  1. My favorite gift thus far is one for this year, that I haven't even given yet. A kindle for my sister, complete with booklight, amazon gift card, and handmade sleeve. She's been wanting one for ages now, so I know she'll love it.

  4. My favorite gift wasn't for Christmas it was for my Mom's birthday the year after they moved to MA (from CA). I surprised her with ME! It was a big hush, hush secret and she actually walked right by me sitting at the table before she turned around and saw me on her birthday morning :D

    Thanks for the chance!

  9. I embroidered some towels for my mother-in-law with designs that look like stained glass windows from the arts and crafts movement of the 1910's & 1920's when her house was built. I used pictures online to make my own patterns and they turned out awesome!

  14. I think my favorite gift will this years Santa gift to my daughter. She's 3 and really into Christmas. She's scared of santa and ran away from him the first time, then was upset b/c she thought that she would not get presents b/c she did not tell him that she wanted lighten McQueen and Mater. Don't worry, I took her again and made sure that mommy told him.

  36. Each and every quilt I've gifted to family and friends are my favorite gifts I've given, but the most meaningful one of all is the quilt I made for my father last year, who loved it immensely and who passed away a few days ago. My family will always treasure his quilt!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. My favorite gift I've ever given... the quilt I gave my mom last year made her squeal, she loved it so much, so that was a great gift to give. I also gave my husband a bike for her birthday when we were dating, and that was a really fun gift to give. I blindfolded him to drive to the bike store and made a big deal out of it all - it was fun!

  39. It would have to be a small quilt I made my sister from a kit my grandma had. I made it for her the first Christmas after my Grandma passed away. It was very therapeutic for me to make it, and it came out beautiful. Thanks for the giveaway! robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

  40. Best gift I've given? One year my husband really wanted some new tools but he really really wanted a table saw. Well my whole family got together and coordinated a whole bunch of new tools. Hand tools, a cordless drill, other stuff, but no table saw. When we pulled into the driveway at home after Christmas at my aunt's, he raised the garage door to find a tablesaw with a big red bow in his parking spot. I wish I had taken a picture of his face. :)

  65. The favorite gift I have ever given has got to be when my daughter was about 3 years old. She was absolutely in love with The Wizard of Oz and ALL she wanted for Christmas was a pair of ruby slippers. I looked everywhere I could think to, but couldn't find them, so I ended up getting a pair of ballet slippers, painting them red, and sewing sequins all over them!

    ReplyDelete

  69. My favorite gift so far was when I picked up a few Care Bears dolls at a mom to mom sale that I was at with my sister-in-law. I gave them to her to give to her daughter, who has just started getting in to them. They sent me a text later that day with a picture of their daughter just BEAMING and cuddling her bears, and a short video of her running around the room hugging them and saying "carebearscarebearscarebears" excitedly. It was so cute. That was the happiest I've ever seen anyone act after a gift.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well, it's hard to narrow it down to a favorite. I pretty much love giving people quilts, but I'm not sure one stands out over the other. Maybe the queen sized wedding quilt I made for my best friend.

  92. My favourite gift that I have evey given was to my husband for our first Christmas. We were expecting a baby just a few weeks later and relocating countries shortly after that so money was very tight. I made a calendar of our year together.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I made 2 kindle covers , one for my sister and one for my dad...and I dont even own a kindle!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  105. My grandma taught me all I know about sewing. When she passed away in June 2010, I inherited her sewing supplies. I used her ric rac to make flower pins/brooches for all the women in my family for that Christmas. I used her antique buttons as the flower centers. I've had requests for repeats this year, but I'm out of ric rac!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hm, that's tricky, I'm not sure what my favorite gift would be. My sister and I bought my mam a wheelbarrow one year which was fun - she grows all her own organic veggies in an allotment back home in the UK. I also found a gorgeous buddha carving for my best friend one year (hm, I wish we still lived together so I could enjoy it too ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  108. favorite gift given - the handmade quilt I gave my son the Christmas after he graduated from boot camp.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I made a 'bachelor gift basket' for one of my friends a few years ago. It was a riot to put together. The highlights: spaghetti and a can of sauce, chips, bubble bath, packets of gravy, an adult magazine and some lube.

  111. I'm sure this will stick out for not being a handmade gift, but the most appreciated gift I gave was to my mother, who was notoriously difficult to please (she stuck a sampler I stitched for her in a spare closet). I gave her an appointment with an exclusive astrologer -- she loved every minute of it, would never have done anything like that on her own (by the way, i wouldn't do it for myself, either), and came away with a great story besides.

    ReplyDelete
  112. My nephews (3 & 5) call my husband Uncie Sockhead. So for Christmas I crocheted them hats with socks on top. After opening it the oldest looked at my hubby and said "you got me a SOCKHEAD!" His face was priceless!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  119. I can think of lots of gifts that I loved giving, but most recently I would have to say the messenger bag I bought for my brother last Christmas. He really needed one but was paralyzed by indecision...and cheapness. :) So I bought him a really nice one and he's always telling me how much he loves it!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. I gave my Dad socks a number of years ago for Christmas. They were the first pair I'd ever knit and I was SO proud of them. Esp bc he'd wanted a solid dark blue. They felt like the longest knit of my life, but he was so excited about them. :)

    ReplyDelete

  126. Not hand made, but... The best gift I ever gave was to my husband back in the early days of our marriage. We had two young boys, and were both working full-time. I arranged for my MIL to watch the kids for a full weekend, and took the hubs on a surprise trip to Catalina (26 miles off the coast of California). We had a romantic room with a balcony and fireplace... Many years later, we still talk about this!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  129. My best present was from my husband--boyfriend at the time. I was in college, divorced with two small children and he bought me a computer! It was before the days when EVERYONE had one so it was such a treat and not something I could've gotten on my own at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I've given surprise quilts to my sister and 2 SILs, I loved their reactions! Need to make one for my other sister this next year!

    ReplyDelete
  133. When I was 3 years old, I gave my older brother a chewed up tennis ball and wrapped it in a dirty sock. It's a terrible gift, but it's made for a lifetime of funny Christmas stories. Bonus: I actually thought it was a good gift and that he would like it.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Well I can't think of anything too special as a gift that I have done. For my husband one year I researched and found a game for his Xbox that he really wanted. He was impressed by that considering I don't have much knowledge in that department. His gift this year is a trip to Eastern State Penetentiary which is a really awesome old prison to tour. He's psyched for that. :)

  138. For several years I would force narcissis bulbs and give them for neighbor gifts. My mother would always force bulbs and they would bring the smell of spring into January. I stopped when I learned that some didn't care for the care the plants took. Thanks for the giveaway.

  146. I recently made a table runner for someone and while I didn't care much for the way it turned out (I guess I was very harsh on myself) she adored it. I love that project because it brought her joy! That is why I do what I do after all!

  147. I love giving to my boys, they are still young so the thrill is the idea of unwrapping a present not whats in it, and i love the excitement on their faces!

  148. I had been saving a Barbie Christmas movie to give to my 5 year old and decided to give her it the other day when she went to my mom's for a sleepover. I wrapped it up and stuck it in her little suitcase. My mom said you should have seen her face.

  149. Wow, I'm having a hard time thinking of the favorite gift I've given. So I'll say the crazy quilt-style cover I made to fit in my husband's mandolin case. It's very personal to us and was fun to make.

  155. My favourite gift to give was an Ipad pouch for my hubby. He is very hard to give to and when I noticed the price of the Ipad bags I knew he would not get himself one. I surprised him with pouch one day after work and he is using it diligently. I'm finally getting it right - jippee :)

  156. My favorite gift was probably the Kaffe Fassett lap quilt I made for my sister when she was about to start chemotherapy - I live 3000 miles away from her, and I wanted her to have something with her at her appointments which would bring her comfort and remind her how much I loved her.

  158. My favourite gift I gave someone was a cut up nine patch quilt using Moda charm squares. It was for a baby, crib size, but I wanted to keep it for myself!
