Does a Website Count as a Homemade Christmas Gift?
by Luke Gedeon
Luke helps us see that virtual gifts can be some of the best “homemade” gifts you could ever give a geek. I believe it might even be a cool gift for a non-geek, who could truly use some help. What a wonderful idea!
The Homemade Design that Made My Birthday
by Erica DeWolf
Erica tells of a gift in the mail that is the next best thing to seeing your loved ones in person. What creative friends she had! If I had the ability to make this gift, I would make it for my own daughter! Maybe I should practice a bit and consider making it for another occasion!
I tell about a gift that I received and like so much that I made up a batch and gave them away as gifts. I would give them again if it wasn’t too redundant!
From a Friend Without Internet Access
I also have another to add from a couple with no internet access, who gave my children homemade gifts this year. They made allergy free gingerbread cookies, and decorated them beautifully. They actually look like Christmas ornaments, only the are edible!! What a perfect personalized, made with love gift!!
