While most of the gifts given and received were the store bought variety, there were a few great handmade presents that I wanted to tell you about.
My brother and his wife gave our girls a fun little set of puzzles on popsicle sticks. The pictures are all church themed, so it will be a great quiet toy to play with in church.
My mother-in-law made my daughter and some of her same aged cousins little quilted purses. This gift is adored. My daughter carries it around the house, and reorganizes her purse constantly.
I gave my daughter a set of see and spell letters. The set is great, but the container it came in does not hold all of the pieces very well. To keep everything together, I whipped up a little bag similar in design to my advent bags.
There were, of course, a lot of non-handmade presents given too. (Like the awesome laminator that I got. Anyone need something plasticized?) I think, though, that handmade gifts really have a special touch. What were some of the great handmade presents that made it into your Christmas?
