    All of you know by now I don't celebrate Xmas but, believe it or not, I enjoy shopping little presents for each of my four (dearest) friends to celebrate.
    I place (Xmas bags) scarves, necklaces / earrings (I make jewelry), French soaps and perfumes, books, thermal socks and all those thinks they may like.
    This gives me extreme joy.

    One of my favorite gifts is a handmade necklace that an online friend sent me.

    Interesting how "giving" can bring such pleasure. I like imagining how happy the recipient might feel as I'm picking out gifts.

    I, too, used to make homemade presents. I have done a lot of needlepoint work. I used to have a few neighbors who would get a bag of homemade holiday breads, cookies, homemade baguettes, etc

    My friends and I no longer exchange gifts, but I love shopping for my grandchildren. This year it's all online, though.
