But my mother-in-law is another story. She's not really into handmade; her house is immaculatley decorated, strait from the pages of a high-end catalog. My husband has neve known what to give her and in years past we've given cookbooks. And more cookbooks.
I bet I'm not the only one with a woman to shop for, so the first Give Handmade Guide is going to start with these women: classy, department store types; Grandmas, Mothers-in-laws, Moms, aunts...anyone who care about enough to give a thoughtful gift.
- How about framing a picture of yourself (seems a little self-involved but I bet this woman doesn't have enough pictures of you past 6th grade)?
- Does she journal or do a daily devotional? Try the beautiful handmade journals from I Make Arrt!
- Everyone likes candles, I prefer these natural beeswax candles from Mama Beehive (my husband designed that website, so I might be a little partial!)
- Stationary is my go-to gift for anyone and everyone. The following sellars have particularly classy style
Spilling Beans has great monogrammed cards
Althena has beautiful photo cards
