I think making gifts is one of the ways to save money, unless the materials used are very expensive. I started to make gifts on my own since I learned how to crochet and knit a few years ago, so I don't spend money buying gifts anymore. I bought the yarns from Taobao, the famous Chinese online website, which are quite affordable. The only disadvantage is it might take days or weeks to make the gifts. But I think it's always nice to receive handmade gifts. Do you make your own gifts? What do you make?
