My daughter has been telling me for weeks now that she's making my Christmas gift. So far she hasn't slipped and told me WHAT it is, but I'm looking forward to a handmade holiday gift under the tree. Anything that my kid makes I will treasure.

But let's face it: not all handmade kid gifts are created equal. Some are more ... let's say useful ... than others. And cuter. Much cuter.

If you have a crafty kiddo at home, why not let them loose with ideas to make something Grandma and Aunt Susie will actually use? We've rounded up some of the cutest -- and easiest -- handmade holiday gift ideas tailor-made for little hands!

We've got everyone from the teacher to your favorite baker, a diehard reader to the lady who loves her nails covered, so dive in.

Number 8 is my favorite, could your kids handle it? What is your favorite gift they've ever made?
