Now with the new baby and less income, I have to come up with some more creative ideas for Christmas gifts. I was thinking of giving gift baskets with homemade things in them. I have made homemade gifts before and ended up feeling like I spent about the same amount of money I would have if I had just bought gifts. Any ideas on what to put in the baskets while keeping the cost down?Answer Question

I think one of the things I love the most is the children's hand prints. You take a plastic lid and put a hook in the top edge. Fill it with plaster. make the hand print. When it is dry paint it. We used gold spray pain. When my adult son died that little hand print meant so much to me. I can see the lines in his hand and his little finger prints in it. I just wish we had done it every year.
Something like this and a picture of the child is a wonderful gift to grandparents.
