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.

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.
Also keeping with the apple theme here is a trio with an Apple Strudel scented candle made by Michelle of Aunt Sally’s Upcycled Vintage Crockery company.
We have also made some lovely apple hanging decorations that would look lovely in any teacher’s home!
At Our Handmade Collective we have a wide range of handmade cards that would go with the gift you purchase.
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!
So pop into Our Handmade Collective UPSTAIRS in Handpicked Hall, Grand Arcade, Leeds. We are open Wednesday-Saturday 11am-6pm and on Sunday 11am-4pm. See you then!
