Gift Ideas?

This year my husband and I do not have the money to exchange gifts, it was hard enough to pull off Christmas for the kids. I have been trying to think of something creative and meaningful to make him, but iv'e drawn a blank all month and now i'm running out of time.

Anyone have any ideas? I don't have a lot of money that I can spend on supplies. Maybe $20-30 tops.

  • Does he have a sweet tooth? Making fudge, divinity, special cookies would be something my husband always liked.

  • Okay I am exploring those ideas. I am also thinking about taking an old hardback book, gluing the pages together, and then cutting the center out to make him a hidden compartment to keep his possessions in. Does that sound like an okay idea?? Or does it sound lame?
