Re: What do you prefer to give during holidays?

For adults, it is so very person-specific. For teens I usually give money or gift cards because it's usually really what they want.

For adults I usually make at least one gift, and that varies (it's gotten a lot easier now that I'm a mom because the grandmothers get something with DS's little face on it -- This year it's coasters made from recycled garden tiles and modpodge); last year everyone got crocheted scarves; the year before it was hand scrub. I also buy a gift, and it just depends on the person. My mom tends to like Bible study items like commentaries or Beth Moore books/guides and she also likes kitchen related items. My brothers are techies so I let my DH do the shopping for them. DH's sister is into dragoncon type stuff so this year I got her some vampire paper dolls (she's in her 40s but I think she'll get a kick out of them). For my sisters-in-law on my side of the family I usually get some stationary type items or some jewelry

ETA: personally I love to bake and would give food gifts, but people usually have SO MUCH food around the holidays, I'm afraid it would be wasted.
Oh my gosh I love the coaster idea! I have Modge Podge too! I bought it for a craft and have so much left over!!! TOTALLY COOL!!! All the grand parents would love it!!! So would my older sister!

God bless!
