 My two SIL decided that the kids are going to make gifts for each other this year! Kids range from 14-3 in age...all boys but two! I found lots of cute crafts that we may try on family fun's website!

 Love making gift baskets!

Quoting Lo1427:

I really like homemade gift baskets. You can do a theme like movie night and include popcorn, a movie, candy, soda, etc.

I find baskets at goodwill throughout the year for a few bucks a piece and I use coupons to get a lot of the stuff inside.
