Christmas Gifts



"Gifts that can be used, or that really give pleasure to the person receiving them, are the proper ones to select. Gifts that cannot be used or enjoyed by those receiving them show either bad taste or else a lack of thought on the part of the donor. A beautiful Christmas card may give more pleasure to some persons than any other gift that could be selected. It is not the cost, but its fitness, that makes the worth-while gift." (Elementary Home Economics)

Hand-made gifts are especially desirable, because they represent time and thought spent for the purpose of giving pleasure to those receiving the gifts. The following are simple gifts that can be made at home.

Potholders
Pillowcase
Doll Dresses
Drawstring Purse
Apron
Decorative Pillow

  1. I popped on over here from the Sensibility boards, and I am so glad I did! This looks like it will be such a fun sweet blog.... btw, are you at all aquainted with the "Homemaker's Encyclopedia" published in 1954? It has 12 volumes ranging in subject from decorating to "charm and beauty" to child care. I occasionally post snippets on my blog. They seem to be just the sort of thing you would appreciate:)
