Additional Craft Information:
As members of amiable society, we often feel bound to provide gifts for our nearest and dearest. To discount a single person when gift giving would be a cardinal sin, let alone not provide the most courteous gift possible.

Impersonal gifts like candles and bath salts would be affronting. People want proof that a gift took more consideration than the time it takes to pay at the store.
Is that really too much to ask? There's no trouble with desiring to be thought about by somebody you care about.
Only those with the super power of a considerate gift dispenser can think of a new thoughtful gift for every person on their list. And on top of that, gifting holidays occur multiple times a year. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, and all the other society made holidays exist purely to distress the gift contributor.
Here's a solution for you. Why not make the same old gift seem like a new revelation each time?

It's within the realm of promise. Just head on down to the nearest wholesale fabric suppliers, pick out a design, and get inventive. You could quickly generate a quilt or sweater. A unique and thoughtful gift is in your grasp. And the best part is you can change the model of the fabric by the yard each time for a completely unfamiliar gift.
So, you say you aren't inventive enough to sew together a quilt? Or you don't know how? Come on! Resources to learn how to turn fabric by the yard into a gift are available everywhere.
Local community colleges or recreation centers usually have adult education courses in which you can learn new skills, such as sewing or learning to make a quilt. The Internet has a hoard of resources you can use. There are blogs and how-to websites that are dedicated to turning people who believe they have no inventive powers into fully-fledged master artists. Youtube and other video websites are filled with how-to guides for those of us who have trouble learning without visual instruction. You'll be making masterpieces in no time at all!
Once you've decided which type of gift you want to make, whether it's a quilt, sweater, or any other creation you've come up with, you can design each gift to fit a different person. Usually wholesale fabric suppliers have hundreds to thousands of different types of textile designs. A Sleeping Beauty design can be selected for your princess-wannabe niece. That coworker who has a lot of patterned shirts will love the striped design you made.
The same quilt, sweater, or pencil cozy can be gifted every holiday, every year. Buy a different fabric by the yard, and you'll have a totally different gift. Your loved ones will thank you!
