I love to gift my creations, as I’m sure most of you do. It is very rare that I keep what I make. Often, I will hook a project and think I must make one of those for myself, but I never seem to get around to it!
Handmade… it just says ‘you are so special, I took the time and thought to make you something unique, individual… just for you.’ It is a tangible and often practical expression of love.
The saying that it is better to give than receive is so true. That is why I think it is important to present your gift with just as much attention to detail as the actual gift itself. I think that a gift should look as beautiful as it can to excite and shout…
‘LOOK AT ME – I’M JUST FOR YOU!’
For me a gift is not only the present it’s the experience of receiving as well. Here is the Happy Ripple ready to go
I even wrote a little poem!

I love the idea of giving a personalised poem along with the handmade gift…….it’s a bit like adding a label to a home made quilt…….makes it that little bit more special.
That ripple is just so precious and how darling is the poem, anybody would love to be the recipent of such a gift and your so right with handmade, it’s what I’ve thought all along.
That is one lucky recipient.
Wow, that are two beautiful gifts! I also try to wrap/decorate my gifts in something exciting for the recipient, to make the receiving more fun. I love the note you wrote.
Truthfully, I’m not that good at giving away my knits: I can’t often stand to part with knitted work that I’ve spend so much time with.
I’m making something just for me right now… it makes a nice change for me. x
Beautiful projects! I love your pretty gift tags too!
