Last year I did about 50% of my gifts handmade & they went over really well. My dad's boobie pillow was his favorite present ever. This year I'm doing about 75% handmade because we are strapped. I try to do assembly line work for the "moms" (aka my mom, MIL, & soon to be step-mom). Here are a couple of the completed items. I'm still in the middle of all of them.
3 crochet washcloths
3 dishtowels w/toppers
2 boo boo bunnies w/soap
I might throw in some extras later
I got a great deal on casserole dishes for $3.99 & made covers for them
I may do matching hotpads
I'm also doing some calorimetries, scarves, chapstick keychains & pin cushions
