  • Well, if you have a friend or family member with children, you can make a coupon book. 1 for a free night of baby-sitting, 1 coupon to help their child with a homework project, 1 fully prepared meal delivered to their house, one day of house cleaning.

  • Last year my mom gave out gag gifts. One was a pair of slippers made out of pads. One pad was the "sole" and another pad wrapped around it right at the toes for the strap. Then she hot-glued a red bow on the top. She also used a hot glue gun to glue the 2 pads together. The sticky part thats suppose to go on panties needs to go on the bottom, so they can use them to "mop" their floors. lol.

  • Do you have any big baby food jars? Like stage 3? Or make this gift bigger and use maybe a Mason jar, but buy some black, red, and white felt and make a santa face and hot glue it to the jar and then use the top of it and use the red felt and a white fuzzy craft ball at the end and make a santa hate and hot glue that to the top and put candies in the jar. It'll be a little Santa candy jar.
