Wise Bread on Marketplace: Great Homemade Gifts
I love homemade gifts...well, most of them. Around the winter holidays every year, there are always those people who seem to think that anything homemade makes a great gift — it's the thought that counts.
I disagree with that. There are some darn awful homemade gifts out there — gifts that are poorly timed, tacky, or, more than anything, don't take what the giftee might actually like into account.
Last week, I was thrilled to go on one of my favorite radio shows, Marketplace Money, and talk with host Tess Vigeland about tasteless homemade gifts and some great things to make and give instead. It was a lot of fun, and Tess is as awesome, friendly, and funny as she sounds.
Are you making gifts this year? What's the best homemade gift you've been given? The worst?
