    I’ve done baked goods and fixed them up in pretty bags which I got at the dollar store.

    This year (and last year) I did a good bit of knitting and given out some gifts that way (hats, scarves, coffee cozies, potholders, etc). Cheri, start early in the year and make some stuff, then you can chooses who gets what without feel pressed for time.

    We’ve also taken pictures and then got these frames that flip to another picture for the grandmothers.

    Also, bought cute mugs on sale after christmas for the next year and put little packets of hot chocolate, some candy/snack, with a bookmark and then a big bow 🙂

    My dad got a mailbox this year….my parents needed one bad!

    I’m glad I checked this thread- I think I’ll make a few jars of cookie mix to give to friends and my parents (they never use/like store bought gifts) the oatmeal ones sound good and super easy

    It’s that time again! If anyone has any new, creative handmade/homemade gift ideas or holiday recipes to bring to a party or give as a gift please post it here. Let’s bump this thread a couple times throughout the holiday season.

    One year I made really neat candle holders. I bought mugs and matching plates from the dollar store and bought creamic glue. You place the mug upside down so it serves as a base and glue the little plate (right side up) on top to serve as the candle platform. (curvy shaped mugs work best) Then I bought pillar type candles (also from the dollar store) to place on top of the plate and finished with either a ribbon bow at the base of the candle or little greenery or grapevine wreaths. So for about 4 dollars per gift I was able to make some really nice unique christmas gifts. These also work as cookie plates to leave cookies out for Santa for those with small children at home.

    What if you make him(or have someone who knows how 🙂 ) a CD just for him…Songs that he likes, has memories too, etc. you can download the songs and burn them on a CD. 🙂

    Or… I could sing them!!!! Which would cause Willow and Windi to yowl which would mean that we could all participate!!!!!!

    I think that I will record “It’s a Small World”……

    A music and/or pictures CD would be a great idea. KyK those candle holders are ingenious! I am picturing white cup and saucers that have silver and gold striping and displaying a Christmas ornament. Great ideas! WWM, I adore my husband and I always have the most trouble finding him a Christmas gift.

    I think the problem is that when most men think of something they want, they go out and get it. So they never give us a chance!!!!!!

    I came up with a good present for GG whose birthday is today! GG went to the University of Wisconsin and loves his Badgers. He also loves Glen Jr, so I ordered him a Badgers collar for Glen. He was psyched! And Glen is looking very handsome 🙂

    Awesome idea GD!!! Happy Birthday GG 🙂

    Well, at least that’s something, CM – GG never gives me any hints what he wants. He told me he doesn’t want to have a birthday. He told me the same thing last year (Never mind the fact that I’m 5 months older than him and already celebrated that birthday). He always like the presents, whether he wants to have another birthday or not 🙂

    Cuuute! You gave me the idea to decorate plain collars for Christmas. I would be careful to use cat-safe decorations, thanks for the idea GD!

    I must add this idea for an easy origami project.
    http://www.inklingsandyarns.com/2012/06/origami-dress-tutorial/

    I found a pad of origami paper 6’x6′ and different colours with patterns like spots, gingham, floral and zig-zag and made up 8 different dresses. I have decorated them with tiny stick on ‘diamonds’ for buttons and a couple have tiny cat stickers on the skirts and I also made belts from black ribbon and added diamante stickers for buckles. I attached them all to a long ribbon and my great niece will receive this pretty bunting for Christmas.
    They were easy to make and a joy to decorate and give.
