On the Twelfth Day of Christmas , my true love gave to me…. some lovely OHC goodies!

One of our talented makers Juliette of UrbanFox has been photographing everybody’s creations and making them into the Twelve Days of Christmas. She has created this amazing animation to include all the seasonal goodies we have on offer.

On our Facebook page we’d all been trying to work out the Our Handmade Collective’s version of the festive song and we came up with:

On the first day of Christmas OHC gave to me… a smiley sprout in a tree!

On the second day of Christmas OHC gave to me… two Christmas stockings

On the third day of Christmas OHC gave to me… three Christmas puddings

On the fourth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… four hats and scarves

On the fifth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… five comfy cushions

On the sixth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… six mugs for drinking

On the seventh day of Christmas OHC gave to me… seven frames-a-hanging

On the eighth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… eight reindeers flying

On the ninth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… nine stars-a-twinkling

On the tenth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… ten pinnies-a-prancing

On the eleventh day of Christmas OHC gave to me… eleven bags-a-toting

On the twelfth day of Christmas OHC gave to me… twelve cards-a-greeting

Each day on our Facebook page we feature an album of photographs of wonderful handmade gifts that fit the day’s song.

Thank You Teacher Gifts

At Our Handmade Collective we have a special table full of great gift ideas for Thank You presents for your children’s teachers and teaching assistants.

Apple for the Teacher:

Little Shop of Lathers have a great range of affordable bath bombs that are suitable for teachers. Claire has made these gorgeous ‘Apple for the Teacher’ and also ‘Gold Star for the Teacher’ bath bombs.

For something a bit different, get your teacher a set of jams handmade by The Seasonal Larder, presented in their own hessian bag.

Instead of getting a bottle of wine like everybody else, get Miss her own hand-painted wine glass and free ‘Thank You’ charm (both from Handmade by Natalie).

This is a lovely trio of vintage china with a beautiful pin cushion inner, a great gift for a special teacher made by Kitsch-ina.

If you have got a lot of teachers or teaching assistants to buy gifts for then get them a little handmade thank you, like these boxed crochet rose brooches by Rose Cottage Crafts.

One of our newest makers Its Sew You has these lovely covered notebooks which would be great gifts for teachers.

But what if your child’s teacher is a Sir and not a Miss! No problem, we have a wide range of cufflinks and these fascinating keyrings  from SciArtImages. We also have these printed on mugs for Sir to have his coffee in!
