1001 Geschenk- und Bastelideen

1001 gift and craft ideas

It's not even two months until Christmas...

I just mean...

This year I had resolved to have the gift ideas for the majority of my loved ones together early on - at least mentally. I wanted to be prepared by the end of October at the latest so that I could then enjoy the pre-Christmas period with the normal level of everyday family stress. And what should I say when I compare my imagination with reality? It worked so semi well.

If you feel the same way as me and you still haven't got all the gift ideas together, you for your mother-in-law, your uncle's new wife, your pregnant cousin, your dearest friend, but unfortunately she already has "everything you could wish for". or for someone you don't really like that much but still have to give a present to, the ideas are lacking and in your sewing corner you also expected many small leftovers more from their death than being constantly dragged out of the boxes and trampled on by small children's hands - yes , Then we have something for you.

Or if you leave a little encouraging nicety in front of the door of the dear grandma next door these days or send a loving "I'm thinking of you" to the friends you actually wanted to visit but can't or the new kindergarten teacher, who works so hard and want to give a small thank you and you still don't have the right idea for it - don't worry, we have something nice for you here.

And from you. Because we asked for gift ideas in our Facebook group and the long list that came up is very nice to look at! I've broken them down into categories for you so you can browse more specifically. I hope we can support you at least a little with this - you have to and are allowed to sew and do handicrafts yourself =)
