I love to give away someone's favorite item to them...does that make sense? I have a friend that loves to cook, so I pick out a speicalty item (and oil or vinegar or chcolate or utensil) I know they want/like/would like.

Christi Bennett @ pisforparty said...

These are great! I LOVE giving gifts and try to personalize them for each person. I always love to bake too and receive yummy treats! =)

Erin said...

My sister is always the most fun to shop for because she loves everything I love! This year I can't wait to get her one of the darling charm necklaces I'm seeing everywhere:)

Nik said...

I love to give homemade goodies- usually from old family recipes and then dress them up really cute! These stickers would be a perfect finishing touch!

I love baking up goodies as gifts and I love wrapping the goodies too. These stickers would be perfect as the finishing touch. Love the holidays!

Caryn said...

I love giving a gift card - this took me some getting used to, but I LOVE getting a gift card to my favorite places so I've started giving them more often. I try to make sure it is to somewhere specific to the recipients hobbies or tastes and wrap it up with homemade chocolate covered pretzel sticks and lots of ribbon.

Kat said...

For christmas I love to ake things for people whether it be cookies or cakes or cupcakes I just love to give people stuff I have made and I know they will enjoy.

Melissa said...

My favorite thing to give OR get is something handmade (last year I got a quilt! lucky me!). Okay, or something sweet to eat. Either way.

Christie said...

Love the stickers!

My favorite gift to give to our family members are photos of my kids! They always love them.

For My Rat Pigs said...

I love giving someone a homemade ornament. It warms my heart to craft something special to pass out to those I'm fond of. Last year I started a tradition of making ornaments for my kids individual trees, they lite up when they saw all the love that went into it. I hope that's how everyone who receives a handmade ornament by me feels.

Audrey said...

My mom always gets me a gift card to get new clothes, which it seems like I'm always in dire need of by the time Christmas rolls around.

Holly said...

my fav thing to give is def something that the person didnt outright ask for, but it delightfully surprised at how well i pinned it on the nose! ha :)

Dyan said...

Its kind of boring but I love to get clothes. I like to give items that someone may not buy for themselves, such as flowers, a cozy blanket, etc.

giddygoat said...

I love to get my handmade gift from my Mother. If I got nothing else but this, I'd still be thrilled.

merium said...

I love to get a stocking full of little things~esp chocolate!

Jenilee Holbert said...

I love to show how grateful I am to my family by making them homemade gifts. It means so much more to them than anything, and I love seeing their smiles when the open them. Now this year is extra special because I have my little boy and husband to share this with and now I can find even more create ways to show my appreciation and craft! And each year giving a toy for the children who don't get anything. Anything to give back to the community.

Kelly D said...

I love to give small things that people don't expect. Last year my daughter and I made all of her friends small warming pillows for all of her friends in her day care class. She loved delivering them and they all loved their warmies!

sheetal patel said...

i like to give gifts that keep going through the year (i.e. i made my own book of the month club for my nieces where i gave them a gift card to the bookstore for each month of the year). i love receiving homemade/handmade goodies!

Pooh! said...

Anything handmade or personalized always makes it to my "to give" and love to receive gifts

Jewelry. I love to receive it and give it.

I love giving something useful that the recipient would never buy themselves--or something they can't find. I love getting good chocolate and tabletop/kitchen stuff.

Melon said...

I love giving pajamas to my Mom. We do this every Christmas Eve and it's fun to pick out something cute and snuggly for her!

hollee said...

I love to give anything homemade! I love even more to get something that was homemade!! It means so much more that way!

Paper Masterpiece said...

I love to give personalized gifts and even homemade goodies.

Alison S. said...

I appear to be a sucker for your giveaways today. I think my favorite gift to give is anything personal and/or hand made. It seems like anyone can go pick out some generic gift from a store, but taking the time to make something for a family member or friend, such as an ornament, hand-knit scarf, baking kits, etc, can be so much more thoughtful. As for me, my favorite gift to receive is really just to have family with me on that special day. With a family of my own now, it makes me so much happier to see my little girls open gifts than it does for me to open them. Then again, I do love a great fashion accessory too!

PICKLES and WATERMELON said...

I love shopping for my kids and nieces and nephews. I love seeing their face light up when they see something they wanted. I also give out personalized gifts. I don't really care if I get gifts, but I love giving gifts...especially to my loved ones!

a said...

favorite gift to receive is usually something handmade. it shows that the giver took time and thought into their gift, and that means more than anything! thanks!
aimee c.

Megs said...

i love to give my daughter a toy I know she'll love!

You Are My Fave said...

This is my fave of the three! I love getting books during the holidays because that's the time I actually have to sit a be cozy and read.

Renee said...

My favourite gift to both give and receive are books.

Renee xoxo

Mollie said...

I love to find books that represent some type of special bond between me and the giftee. For example, I gave A Year of Mornings to a friend living 4001 miles away with whom I share weekly photos with our emails.

Pouncer said...

I'm fond of giving giant matches in patterned boxes -- something practical and suitable for display.

EB said...

I like wrapping process best. But giftwise? A bottle of vino is perfect any time!

ALM Chandler said...

I usually give wine for adults, but my favorite gift this year are the ISeeMe books for all my neices and nephews!

kendall said...

I love giving (and getting) homemade gifts!

Stellan, Matilda, Julia and Ola said...

For the past few years, I've given friends and teachers hand-made letterpressed calendars off Etsy. They are always a huge hit!

swell news said...

My favorite item to give during the holiday season is not one paticular item, but something I have found(not on one's list) that is perfect for the person. Baking too, of course.

Jessica said...

Anything homemade. Sweater, cake, jam, scarf, quilt. I love it all

Annie said...

My favorite gifts to give are anonymous ones to those in need. Something we always did as a family growing up, and now that we have a kiddo of our own I want to continue that tradition in our own family.

thrift store gal said...

oh my goodness, i've been coveting some fun round stickers for awhile now! i LOVE the stitch red round ones!!!

karlee said...

Lovely!! The Diamond Green sticker matches my gift wrap perfectly. My gift wrap matches my tree, so you can see how perfect these stickers would be!!

NSMOM said...

I prefer to give (not comfortable some reason receiving). Love when I can find the perfect gift for someone. For now, though, my favorite thing to give is pretty much anything to my young boys! Thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

iris said...

jess said...

i love to bake yummy treats and give them away to family, friends, and neighbors. (and a few for us, of course!) hope to win!

Brooke said...

Hands down, anything hand (or home) made. I consider it an "investment" of sorts, in the people we share our lives with.

Tracy said...

My favorite gifts to give are books, for children I try to find old ones that fit their personalities. Lately along with a book, I have been making giant pillows for the children to lay on while reading/looking at the books.

wagonlover said...

I love to giving beautiful framed photos to people as gifts.

Maryann said...

Tegan and Tage said...

My favorite gifts to give and get are handmade, or donations made in someone's honor.

K. Anela Deisler said...

I love hand made things. Both getting and giving htem. My favorites include a quilt my mom made me and a book my sister made with pictures of my nephew.

MelRox said...

I love giving gifts that people need. My mom was in need of a new winter coat so she was super happy to receive a nice coat for Christmas, plus I get joy knowing that she'll use it.

As for the best gift - I love gifts that are a big surprise. I can usually tell what I'll get, so getting something unexpected bring much joy. ;)

Yolanda said...

I love receiving anything handmade. It just touches me to know that someone spent their own energy and time on something and gave it to me.

I love giving handmade things (though my craft is heavily centered on food). And I love giving people things that that they would love to have but would never buy for themselves.

chiara said...

My favorite gift to give is chocolate. Dark chocolate! Who doesn't love that!?

Love the stickers!

AEOT said...

I love sending boxes of goodies to friends with little kids who may not have time to bake the more elaborate Christmas cookies/treats. They love it, their friends love it, and it's always a surprise to get anything fun in the mail!! These stickers would definitely help me out when sending these great packages!

My favorite gift to receive is anything that comes beautifully wrapped. There's something about gorgeous wrapping that makes me so happy!

Lucy said...

these are so great!

I love receiving useful gifts. I know that may sound boring to most, but I am such a sucker for pretty practical things.

Valerie said...

I love to make and give homemade marshmallows. Trust me, you'll never want store-bought ones again!

shutterbug87 said...

I love and receive to give a happy experience - a moment shared with someone is one thing that is uniquely theirs, especially these days when personal time with a person can be so hard to set aside :) Another good thing about experiences is that they can be relived in your mind countless times and each time you would still feel the love and joy.

Jeni said...

What beautiful stickers. Love them! My favorite gift to receive is anything girly.

Lucy said...

I love giving and receiving books. I'm an avid reader and I'm always eager to share books I love and to receive books my friends love.

For Your Inspiration said...

The best gift (whether given or received) is one that's a surprise and still perfect. It's no fun knowing what's under the tree because you bought!

Tale of Two Kids said...

I love giving several small gifts that work together for a theme or are part of something big that they like to do. For example, my sister loves to entertain - so I got her some glasses, some wine and a beautiful platter that she can use when she has guests over!! :)

Brandi George said...

I love to give edible gifts! Like yummy homemade cupcakes or cookies! These also happen to be my favorite gifts to receive! :)

Melissa van Herksen said...

I love to give photo books, especially to my family since they don't really do it themselves. They are always so excited to receive our gifts. I love to receive any type of paper product (note cards, paper, pens, etc.)

Homemade steamed Christmas puddings! We set aside a day to make as many as we can get on the gas burners and then wrap them up all pretty ready for delivery to our special pudding lovers. Thankyou so much.

Christi said...

My favorite gift to receive is always the least practical & beautiful. Last year, the Hub gave me a beautiful necklace of glass blown beads that look like bubbles from Anthropologie.
My favorite gift to give is something the person would never buy for themselves - and that varies by person.

Save the Date for Cupcakes said...

The best gift is one that a person will treasure. Sometimes the smallest gifts have the biggest impact on a person heart. Those are my favorite gifts to give!

Laura said...

I love to give cookies or something sweet over Christmas time. Last year I made fudge, chocolate pretzels, and some sugar decorated cookies. I love to get handmade gifts, they are the best because they are unique.

East Coast Okies said...

My most treasured and favorite gifts are handmade. I don't remember a lot of toys and gifts I received as a child-they are fun and exciting for a time and then you forget about them. But I will never forget the dolls or dresses that my grandmothers made for me.

Kate said...

i love to give a memory on paper!

the obsessive imagist said...

My favorite gift to give is an ersatz advent calendar for the whole year. Just put a special, funny or uplifting thought on a small card and seal it in a corresponding envelope--one for each month, week, whatever! Then put them all in a pretty box and tell your recipient to enjoy all year!

Lindsay said...

My favorite gift to give is something handmade or the latest picture of my family in a pretty frame. Thanks for the great giveaway! Hugs!!
