Anyone making homemade Christmas gifts this year?

I have seen so many great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts on Pinterest.  I am making ornaments using tiles from an old Scrabble game a friend gave me and DD is making some ornaments as well.  We are planning to give the finished ornaments to our friends and neighbors along with a bag of baked goodies. 

Anyone else giving handmade gifts this year?

I'm making jewelery (earrings and bracelets), soap and record bowls and hangings I make from old records.

I always make and pass out boxes of assorted cookies for Christmas. And this year my mom and MIL are getting a framed crossstitch I'm making them.

One year I made everyone pillowcases, I got some fabric markers and did something to fit their personality on one side, with their name and a smaller something on the other side. Everyone LOVED them. DH's gets used and washed with every sheet change and the images are holding up really well too.

My mom used to do this every year for extended family. She would make a variety of cookies and candies packed in cookie tins for family members. It was always a huge hit!
