View Full Version : LIST: Christmas Gift Swap

10-14-2010, 04:16 AM
Christmas is just around the corner. You may be thinking of what to give family and friends or you may just want a gift for yourself. This is a thread for trading handmade gifts for other handmade gifts.

Post your wants on here and pictures of handmade gifts you have to trade or examples of things you can make or a good description of things you can make. If you like something you see pm the person to arrange a trade. Also arrange a deadline for mailing out between yourselves.

To be fair only trade for items of a similar value and similar amount of time it takes to make. Of course that is going to be really hard to judge but you should be able to get a vague idea. Once the trade has been agreed on please go through with the trade as it's not fair if someone doesn't receive something and will earn you negative itrader.

Some gift ideas:
jewelry is very fun and can be small
handmade journals
ornaments of various kinds
small stuffed toys and items
wall art items
pillow cases
kitchen towels and potholders (maybe like sew designs on, embroider)
picture frames
photo books
Scarves and hats-other knitted/crochet items
Little sewn items (purse, apron, headband...)
Personalized/hand-made stationary
Hair accessories (hair pin, head band...)
Pottery/ceramics (maybe tiny change bowl, mug, key chain ornament...)
Handmade Postcards-blank for sending? (mixed media, hand painted, photography...)
all purpose note cards
Dotee dolls
coin/change purses
eyeglass/sunglass/readers - holder
small decorative quilt blocks
small canvas
