  • There's about a dozen things on this list that I'll do soon as I have some spare time, but you should find a few ideas there:

  • My sister last year made a spice rub for steak for the guys, and a lavender salt scrub for the ladies. Im sure you could find a recipe online. the salt scrub was amazing!!!!

  • I think personalized scrapbooks, photo calendars would be nice. If you can knit or crochet or sew do something along those lines. I have seen personalized pillow cases which I think are great for kids! You can make your own jewelry for women, something woodworking for men? Good Luck!

  • A couple of my guys are getting fleece blankets (buy 2 yards polar fleece, trim and finish the edges in an attractive way), my DD is getting a potpourri light (potpourri in a rose bowl with 25 strand mini lights, topped with a doily), personalized photo frames are a great idea, personalized ornaments.

  • I wire wrap jewelry, so a lot of my family got jewelry. I may do that again this year, as well as make photo magnets. They're so easy to make, and very cute!

  • Scrapbooks. A letter or poem about how and why the person is special to you.

  • I made a personalized scrapbooking page and framed it in a scrapbooking frame to display in their houses. They were very cute and a huge hit. Michael's has the frames for 5.00! I wouldn't suggest tackling an entire scrapbook. Its a lot of work and it gets expensive quickly. My mother bought a small canvas and had my son paint a picture for me on it when he was two. It was the greatest gift!
