What do you give your …

Today I was asked what I give to my postman.

I have to stop and think about all the gifts I have made over the past few years for Christmas presents. So here are a few of them.

I hope this list helps you with your last minute gifts.

Aprons are great gifts for a young couple or someone you know who loves to cook. Maybe you will recieve a cookie plate in return!

I was able to create unique aprons for each person on my list, based on their personalities.

Pillow are great gifts, and who could not use one for their special chair?  I added hand stitching which shows my love for the person recieving this gift.
