What do you love most about buying handmade gifts from indy makers?

For me the whole reason to buy from an indy maker is to buy a product that is not simply made. You are buying something that is the outcome from hours of trial and error driven from the love for creating this product. You are buying a part of the maker themselves and this can be shown in each product.
