What people are saying about giving handmade gifts

I love gifting and receiving handmade items!  I found a blog post for 101 reasons to buy handmade  and thought I would share with you some of my favorites:

"Because handmade = made with love, care, and thought."
Madeley Rodriguez

"It guarantees that no one will give the same gift as you!"

"When you buy handmade you are giving the handmade artist a huge compliment and actually saying 'I love what you are doing' which in turn keeps the artist doing it."
Stacy Altiery
InkSpot Workshop

"Buying handmade shows our children that not everything in this world needs to be mass produced. It teaches them to love and appreciate the unique and the imperfect. And it inspires them to do their own creating as well."

"Giving handmade is truly the essence of gift-giving. When you give a friend or loved one a gift, you are really saying "I care about you." A handmade gift conveys so much more than something pulled off the end-cap display of a mega store. Of course there are the obvious economic benefits of supporting independent makers and artists, but buying and giving handmade is, at heart, a loving act."
