ABSTRACT
The article comments on the editorial published in a 1923 issue of "Needlecraft" magazine which emphasized the value of giving handmade gifts to family and friends during the holiday season. It argues that the value of a gift is not measured by its price tag. It explores how personally crocheting gifts for family and friends add to the gifts' value.
