What kind of unique, creative, or homemade gifts are you giving this season?

I'm looking for good ideas. I'm trying to think a little more out of the box this year.
So far, i'm giving a few different people/families a mini scrapbook. Handmade and individualized.
And for my IL's i bought them a pair of concert tickets.

What are YOU giving this season that is a little "out of the box"?

  • I like your tickets idea. Tickets to the local play houses or summer broadway shows in your area aren't cheap but are "out of the box". I'm making my delicious cheesecake that people love and always think is from a restaurant. I'll give it to them frozen so they can eat it whenever they like.
    I have a journal post with a ton of ideas but I haven't decided which of them to do myself yet.

  • making camping pillows for everyone. that will have pillow on one side, and a pocket on the back for their blanket or stuffed friend. with a tie to attach to sleeping back for packing. dh's family is big into camping and so are we so I figured this was a good plan (and saves the at home pillows from camp smells lol )

  • Last year for My MIL/SFIL (Step-Father In Law - My husband's step-dad), SIL/BIL we made a batch of cookies for each of them, then attached a couples ticket package to the local comedy club. That had two free drinks, two free appitizers, and tickets to the show. They all loved it. We also bought my SBIL (Step-Brother in law - My husband's Step-Brother) a carniverous plant growing kit. He loved it. If you have any geeks in your family head on over to for some AWESOME gifts. If you're really out of ideas head on over to for some ideas. This year I haven't decided what I'm doing. So I better get to thinking ..
