    I really like that fried chillies site and those ideas are purrfect. I especially love the Brownie Mix idea. Thanks for that one Buttercup, it’s given me some more good Christmas ideas.

    Paulajean, a great idea for someone in assisted living/nursing home is a basket of things like nice hand lotions, room sprays, drawer sachets, plus warm cozy socks/footies and a box of notecards with forever stamps. My grandmother always loved getting rich lotions to soothe her hands and things that made the room smell better.

    We went on a cruise last year with our best friends from here. Before Christmas I found a pretty wooden tray with a glass top at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I printed out some favorite pictures from our cruise, a menu from the martini bar (of course!), a boarding pass and a few other trinkets. We took the glass off, put the items on the tray and when we (we being Mr. WWM and me)liked the arrangement, we glued them down and put the glass top back on. They loved it!

    Of course, I have been known to give my handmade quilts for Christmas!

    🙂 Problem is, my family members are all getting tired of them, I think. I made the most adorable hand appliqued kitty quilt for my S-i-L and she has it folded up in the closet. I put hours of work into that quilt!

    …. WWM!…. that’s a crying shame!….. why, if someone made me a quilt, I’d make sure it was on the guest bed, for all to see!…. if your SIL doesn’t want it, tell her to ship it to Tampa!… I’ll trade her all the bananas she can eat!

    Well, I have to admit that it has hurt my feelings. Mr. WWM just shrugs – it’s his sister. But I just worked so hard to make that quilt perfect. I would love to have it back since it’s just put away in a closet.But that would seem tacky to ask.

    ….. maybe offer to ‘trade’ it for one that has a pattern of her choice (how could anyone not LOVE a kitty quilt?)…. and then, well if that one took oh, say a WAY long time to get done… well, she might just forget about it! (oh, I am bad!)

    I think that she is just clueless about how much time it takes to make a quilt. I am making one for her, and Mr. WWM’s younger sister, for Christmas that has hankies from their mom worked into the quilt. If they like it, fine… if not, I tried.

    Yes, it’s time for these MS. Thanks for bringing this thread and the other Christmas gift thread out. I am still looking for a couple more ideas. Something nice for co-workers that is affordable and not the usual (gloves, pen, candy) is on my list. I am thinking about vanilla extract kits or something like it as long as they like to cook…Maybe someone will have an idea.

    With Christmas looming I thought it was a good time to bring this thread out of temporary retirement.

    When I have to get gifts I think of what a person likes but will not indulge themselves with: eg mainly gift certificates specific to person’s interest, which may seem impersonal but in fact are very well accepted; massage; mani/pedi; gym wear; personal trainer session. Also could be a skill one has, eg I would put together a “starter kit” for a friend who talks about learning to knit and offer a 1-2 hr. “hands-on” lesson. When I’m truly an stuck for an idea I just make a donation to a cause that I feel is close to the giftee’s heart, in their name.

    http://www.commonsensehome.com/how-to-make-homemade-extracts/ I have some lemon extract in the making at the moment from this site and some vanilla extract from the site mentioned on page one of this thread. They both look and smell amazing.

    Here is something very different –

    Please note they recommend the use of crockpot liners. Prevents your next meal tasting like lotion. 🙂
