Gift giving is especially fun when you tailor the gift to something that the recipient would really love and appreciate. When it comes to techno-geeks or outdoorsy types, I’m at a loss for what to give friends and usually end up making them something — but when I’m giving a gift to a fellow crafty designer, I can’t wait for them to unwrap it! See below for a few of my favorite crafty gifts for this holiday season.
Flo and Wendell may be stars of a new children’s book by William Wegman, but they’re not letting the fame go to their heads.

They are salt (lick)-of-the-earth types who like to get their hands, er, paws dirty, preferably in sweet, sweet cookie dough.
A White Elephant gift exchange is my favorite kind of holiday party. Every guest shows up with a gift in a decided price range (usually $10 or $20), and then guests take turns choosing from the wrapped gifts, not knowing what’s inside each one. Of course, you usually know what’s inside the gift you brought… unless you buy a box of something from one of these mystery shops.
