Add me to the list of those who like practical things. When my MIL asked me what I wanted this year, I told her a wastebasket. Really. I need one because my baby has started to chew on the cardboard box I've been using.
For me its beauty products. I love giving and receiving beauty products.
Love... And vegan cookies :)
I have two...baked goods AND books. So good to get and give!
I think the best thing to give or receive is unconditional love. I like to make things for people too.
I like crocheting scarves and hats...especially for people who live up north in the snow. Also, quilts or afghans. I once cross-stitched a group of roses (16x20in size) for my mom that she loved. I try to match the gift with the person receiving it.
I love to give home made gifts, they are far nicer and cheaper than anything I could afford to buy. In terms of receiving, I love gift cards to anywhere from groceries to movies to Home Depot. I so rarely splurge just on myself, that a gift card lets me do just that and get a special thing for me without taking away something from my family budget.
Definitely homemade, vegan baked goods!
I love to enlarge and frame pictures taken at special/events or occasions and give them to family and friends. The picture becomes a nice piece of art to decorate a room and reminds them of special times.
I love to receive gifts that are celebratory of veganism. I am the only vegan in my family and in my tight circle of friends, so whenever someone close recognizes my veganism through a gift, it's awesome!
I like to give donations to my friends and family's favorite charities! (Oh, and cookies too!)
Ooh, I'm not sure what my favorite gift to give is. I really, really like cooking for people and having dinner parties, so for anytime during the year, food is definitely my favorite gift. During the year I keep a mental note of what people have said so I can get them better Christmas/birthday gifts.... so my favorite gift is whatever makes the person say, "Oh my goodness! How did you know?!"
My favorite gift to make for others is an assortment of homebaked goodies! :)
what i really really want (and almost never get) are practical things. i design and make clothing, so i love getting fabrics and notions. in a perfect world, a new machine and serger are definitely at the top of my list. and storage solutions.
i love giving gifts. i make things for people all the time. with family and friends, it's marginally easier as i know them well and can tailor things to their personalities. my son is getting a custom-designed robot hoodie, my niece is getting a faerie one, and my mother is getting one inspired by the colours of the blue morpho butterfly.
Friendship and hugs are my ideal gifts! But I also enjoy making spiced cider packages 8-)
Favorite gift to give is vegan candy in a martini class. :P
I'm totally stealing this idea as it combines the best of both worlds, or the two bests of the same world, or...
I like to give umbrellas or sunglasses. This is because both umbrellas and sunglasses never seem to be in the right place, so the more you have the better. I also like to receive sunglasses, though I have enough umbrellas so please nobody get me one.
I like making homemade gifts for people! This year I've crocheted 2 blankets, 4 hats, sewed 3 doll outfits, and am baking a million cookies!!
I love to recieve anything homemade. My 3 year old made me a painting and it is priceless to me. I love homemade food and handmade gifts. It is thoughtful and more meaningful. :)>>>
