Handmade gifts are always wonderful to give to friends and family.  If you have the time and you're a crafty person, there are tons of ideas available. However, if you don't have the time or patience, there are almost endless numbers of gift ideas available online from artists. If you check out Etsy, you will find a huge selection of artists with wonderful handmade items from hand-poured candles and gourmet edible gifts to stained glass sun-catchers.  

Giving handmade gifts is great because it requires thought and time to consider who is getting the gift.  Know when you purchase from a fellow artist online, that artist put extra time and attention into creating that item. Big box retailers often carry mass-produced items that don't carry the special time and attention to detail the gift recipient deserves. Many artists online pour their hearts into their projects making these types of unique gifts extra special.
