Handmade gift ideas?

I love the idea of handmade gifts I want to make gifts for my family and extended as much as possible this year, but I want them to be nice. lol I love to sew. My hubby is an amazing painter and constructive with woodwork. Any ideas based on these skills that would be thrifty, but not 'look' thrifty?
Thanks in advance!

Re: Handmade gift ideas?

I was thinking about making something with chalk paint this year as that seems to be all the craze. Little wooden tags you can buy at the craft store and paint them with chalkboard paint...maybe 6 to a little organza bag with a piece of chalk? Or coffee mugs covered in chalk paint, you can write a little message on the cup and include a piece of chalk? Apparently chalk is on my brain LOL.

Our house loves the fleece blankets with ties. I know not much dewing but we all fight over them. Or sweaters if u know to knit. Depending on ages & genders... maybe jumpers/dresses. Bookshelves or shelf 4 jewelery for wall. Off the. Top of my head.

Re: Handmade gift ideas?

how about some painted wooden coasters? I love the fleece lap blankets too. I'd love it if someone sewed me a soft fleece pillowcase
