    well for 2 year old the best gift is toy because that makes him happy the most but you can maybe give The Polar Express book,it has a lot of ilustration and it's really a great gift for the little ones and also for grown upsYou can also try to make something on your own, like jewellery box or picture

    A Christmas ornament is fine. At age two, kids love battery operated toys. They push a button to activate light, sound, or motion.

    and crown him Lord of all."

    I'm sorry. I should have paid closer attention to what you were asking!

    A personalised photo book is nice for older family and friends. You can get them printed professionally but it's still personal because you choose the pics and text.

    *doesn't count as totally homemade though

    For younger kids I like shortbread Christmas decorations hung on the tree with ribbons - you can personalise with icing messages.
