How many Christmas presents do you usually buy?

Q: How many Christmas presents do you usually buy?

A: I only buy presents for my son, my nephew, and my closest friends. But I usually make presents for a few other people. This year I am trying to learn to crochet, but that will be too late for Christmas! I think I will make people a special bowl holder I just saw a pattern for. It makes it easy to hold a hot bowl of soup without getting burned. Many of my friends have strange work schedules, so they are eating re-heated food frequently. I think the bowl holder will be a useful item for them, and I can choose the fabric, so it will be customized for each person’s taste.
