- Have you received handmade items?
- Have you ever asked for a gift back?
- Do you gift handmade items for holidays?
Here are my answers:
-I very rarely gift handmade items. There are a few people that are knitworthy to me – my DH, my Mom, my friend Nora, and very occasionally my brother and SIL and one of my cousins. Other than that, babies of close friends or relatives. But the vast majority of my knitting is for me.
-I definitely have limits around who I gift to or what I gift. I don’t get to elaborate for most people. And I don’t generally give gifts to anyone unless I’m sure they will appreciate it and will take care of whatever it is.
-By and large, gifts are hats or mitten or maybe a shawl. Adult sweaters are limited to my Mom and DH. Baby gifts are usually blankets, though sometimes I will do sweaters or booties or similar.
-I have received handmade items as gifts. Mostly from my Mom, who sews and has made me clothing. When I was little, she and my grandmother and a couple of my aunts made a lot of my clothing and things like afghans and so on.
-I have not asked for a gift back, though occasionally I have felt like it. Mostly I avoid this type of situation by being really, really picky about who I make things for.
-I occasionally gift handmade things for Christmas, but when I am going to do that, I work on things throughout the year and then put them aside until the holiday. I don’t make myself crazy trying to finish things on a short schedule.
