Hand-Made Gifts


What was the best hand-made gift that you ever gave?

When I was a young mother and my husband had just left me the moth before Christmas and I didn’t have the inclination to figure out what to buy people for Christmas, I decided to bake my Christmas presents that year. I baked Christen stollen and Christmas cookies and gave them as Christmas presents because psychologically that was all i was capable of doing. It was good therapy for me because it was physical work and my relatives appreciated the gifts. Both The giver and the receiver benefited from the gift. That was the best hand-made Christmas gift I ever gave.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
