No differences with the past years... I'll offer books... bought in bookshops I particularly like... carefully chosen ;)

I like this picture... it's more than a photo... it's a painting

The photo :)

We just buy gifts to the kids. Less, probably not.

Gorgeous still life.
This year I took the handmade pledge, so I am not buying a thing for anyone but instead making it all by hand. Somehow I feel this will not fly if I ever have children but for now it's acceptable :)

It should be a good mix... I have already purchased a fabulous print for my mom-in-law and a handmade scarf for my sis-in-law from Etsy, a camera band for my other sis-in-law from Dawanda, and then I have a big list of things that I plan to make.

I would like to give as many handmade things as possilbe. It is much easier to buy handmade items for the ladies of the family (and kids) than it is for the gents.

P.S. Thanks for the call... that was so nice of you. Official due date: March 12th!

We never go over the top at Christmas. Our kids have sooo much stuff already and most of the time would rather be playing out in the garden or doing something arty!I've seen some wonderful books and handmade bits and pieces on etsy. Notonthehighstreet is great too.

I buy art too...little picture from Bridget is painting for my daugthers, Tatiana and Aliénor.

Not less this year than other years, I never buy many gifts, not with this student budget :) I'll try to make some gifts this year like I did last year too:)

Over the last several Christmas' we have not exchanged gifts with our families. We make our birthdays a big event and tend to give to the needy more than ourselves during the holidays. We still give the girlies some treats. It's a good feeling.

Less, probably not. But more in international webshops, I think (for exemple, your nice webshop, mieke willems…). Beautiful blog, Kaylovesvintage…

We are certainly buying less this year, and pretty much just devoting our selves to only giving handmade, or homemade food

Love the picture!
