  • We make home made ornaments every year. For gifts we make homemade baked goods and candies (peanut butter cups and things like that).

  • In my previous life, many years ago, we made all kinds of crafts. Lately, I have been tootoobusy. I really want to do something this year. But I have to get going.

  • Things I use to do: Baked goods, candles, perfume, stuffed animals, sewing projects, crochet and knitting, picture frames.

  • I have made tons! I crochet, knit, craft, sew, I even made homemade knitting needles for friends that knit! I think homemade gifts are the best, they come from the heart.

  • Usually some craft such as crocheted doilies (my sisters love these and my sister who passed away earlier this year passed on the doilies to her daughter), broom dolls, baskets I put together, etc.

  • I do lots of baked goods, everything from cookies & fudge, to cakes & candies. I have made quilts for people (yes these took a long time), also gift baskets!

  • I make gift jars: sand art brownies, french market bean soup and many others have several books and there are many recipes on the web.

  • I knit something, make some sort of candy for everyone, then get them a little gift that i think they'd like.
    I have two gifts made so far, and three in process. I have a lot on the go at once so i don't have to get frustrated / bored with them.

  • I used to make tree skirts and all sorts of sewed items, wreaths, and baked goods. But I have gotten away from doing it once we pared down our gift list.
