Handcrafters' Holiday Meme Blog - Do you have a favorite gift that you love to give?

I like to give a hand kitted cotton facecloth with a nice bar of artisanal soap. You could beef it up by adding a nice mug with some tea bags stuffed in it or a candle. A great inexpensive gift for the busy lady in your life (ex: teacher, mature babysitter, a female co-worker's secret Santa gift). Plus, I usually have afew made up with blank gift tags on them in case somebody drops by with a Christmas gift I wasn't expecting.

There are sooooo many patterns for knitted facecloths online. You can get as fancy or plain as you like. Here is a pattern for a very basic one. Skip the day of the week embroidery though. Hmmm. You could do the first letter of their name though. Monogram it - would be cute. Don't forget to use cotton wool!
