    Christmas present

    My mother donated/gave me self-made cookies as Christmas present.

    Which one is better, gave or donated?

    Re: Christmas present

    Only gave is natural. Write home-made. The expression "self-made" doesn't really exist in English except in the expression ​self-made man/woman.
