Fave Christmas Gifts

These are a few of my favorite Christmas gifts that I gave this year.  All handmade, all from fabulous Etsy sellers.

I originally ordered this Winter Scents Gift Set for our family to try out all the luxurious limited edition soap scents, but we ended up gifting it to families in need.  This year, for the holiday charity at my daughter's school, they adopted families and gave toiletry baskets to them.  The set came in such cute packaging, and with all the holiday scents it was perfect to give.  My daughter took it to school, and all the students and teachers were wondering where we got it!  Crimson Hill on Etsy, that's where!  =0)



My oldest daughter was born on Christmas Eve.  Youngest daughter was born on Christmas Day.  Each year, we like to take handmade hats and give them to the maternity ward at the hospital.  For the past two years, we've gotten super soft hats from GrammaLea on Etsy.  Next year, we'll probably do the same.


This Leave-in Conditioning Detangler Spray is one of my daughter's Must-Haves!  She thought that I had forgotten she had run out of it and was expecting it as one of her Christmas gifts...Well, she was super excited to get what she was expecting.  Her scent is Miami Nights - smells great!


Lastly, we had no idea what to get for Grandpa G this year.  He's a tough cookie.  But we figured a nice, warm beanie would be good for the cold winter weather.  We got this one:


These were just a few of the excellent Christmas gifts that we found on Etsy.  Did you find any there?  Would you like to share?  Please do with a comment!

Handmade gifts are the best! I got several of them from Etsy this year, and then I made a few myself. Definitely doing the same thing next year. :-)

Oh yes! I went Etsy crazy this year. One of my favorites was a set of wineglass charms that I ordered. I couldn't give them away though so I kept them for myself!

What great gifts! I made a lot of my gifts myself such as wax tarts, sock snowmen and jewelry. Handmade is the way to go whether you do it yourself or buy handmade, it's much more heartfelt!

What lovely gifts!! I love handmade stuff because it's often made much better than store bought, it's made with love AND the possibilities are endless!!
