I think most people would prefer to receive handmade gifts. Because, it takes more time to design and complete a handmade gift compared with store-bought gift, and then the recipient can feel their importance. In addition, the handmade gift maybe unique which can not bought in store. But now there are some new gifts in between, we can give our design and require the suppliers to complete like calendar/cup showing own design, puzzle with commemorative photo etc.,

I think most people would prefer to receive handmade gifts. Because it takes more time to design and make a handmade gift compared with a store-bought gift. Then, the recipient would be more appreciated/valued by the giver. In addition, the handmade gift is unique because it cannot be bought in store. But now, there are some new gifts that can be customised. We can give/provide our design to the suppliers to print onto things like the calendar, cup or puzzle with our  commemorative photo etc.,
