For me?  I have more money than I do time.  I would LOVE to make all
my Christmas gifts, and I hope to make *some* this year, but honesty,
I *like* having resources to spend my money and support others.   I
don't think there's anything wrong with purchasing things, and don't
want anyone to feel like their gifts might be thought of as lesser
because they don't have the time or skill to make something.
