I love homemade gifts. I love to receive them and I love to give them. There is something so charming about something you created with your own two hands and clever mind. When you hold something that you know someone created in their kitchen, garage, garden or office and you know that time and thought and love went into, it's value skyrockets. To know that hands you love and cherish fashioned something for you, it's a blessing!
Some Christmases I really get my act together and create most of the gifts. Then there are years like the last two Christmases when all I made was a few trips to the store. *pout*
This year, I didn't make everything, but some things. I got together with a friend and we put on the Christmas tunes, drank apple cider and created! It was a blast. Here are the fruits of our labors:

Gana and I enjoyed limoncello in Italy this summer,
so it was doubly fun to mix up a batch in our own kitchen!
