Day 17 of 25 Handmade Gifts to Give

Day 17 brings one of my absolute favorite things about the Holidays...Nativity Scenes. I don't know what it is about them, but I have a major love for different Nativity scenes and I seem to like the non traditional looking ones. The only one I really own right now is the Fisher Price Nativity Scene and I LOVE it. It is traditional looking, but there is something so sweet about it. I think part of it is the look on my kids' faces each year when we get it out. Even Dart who is getting older still has that little shimmer in his eyes every year when we pull it out.

Some of my favorites on Etsy:

From Meadow Tea

How adorable is that? So many ways you could display it.

This is so different and can't be displayed in the house really, but still so cute for a little girl. Sweetstitchedthings

So simple and sweet from inbeccascloset

There are so many more that I LOVE!! My favorite though is one that my mom has that I remember using growing up. I remember everyday adding more "straw" to the manager so Baby Jesus would have a soft bed come Christmas morning when he would be added. My kids also love that one.

Day 16 of 25 Handmade Gifts to Give

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday...busy day and then crazy computer issues last night. Computer seems to be fine now after some major cleaning up. It was in bad shape, taking 20 minutes to type one word. I'm not a patient person as it is, so I was really not a happy girl last night.

Today's gift(home decor item) is stockings. Stockings come in all shapes, sizes and designs, but are one of the staples at the Holidays. I LOVE going through my stocking come Christmas morning. I even had 3 stockings as a little girl. One was the traditional red with white trim and my name embroidered on it, another that was made by my grandma, it was a pink ballet shoe and the final looked like a doll with a dress and apron on and the apron was the stocking.

Etsy is full of cute handmade stockings.

One of my favorites comes from Mr. Button
Should have known there was an owl on one of my favorites.

Another favorite from Little B Nursery

I love the simplicity of this stocking from Mondernality

Are you a stocking stuffer lover like me? What is the best thing you ever got in your stocking?
