I used to make a cookie tin with cookies and candies for all my neighbors, I have also takin glass ware and paint and made cute holiday candle holders.  I was watching the chew today, they had fun orniments you can make for gift for guest, so that got me thinking what are some creative gifts you have made?  If you have picture please share.

Also, is there a gift you got that you wish you could make?

I used to cross stitch and my favorite gift was making 4 bread basket covers for my grandmother. They're for each season and she still uses them. :)

Were the light bulb ornaments today? I'm on my 3rd episode of The Chew for the day (got a little behind) so they're running together! Lol.

I remember as a kid taking pretzels and making them in a shape of a wreath, spray painting them.  Then the last step is take ribbon and put through and tie a bow on the top.  My mom hung that up until I was in high school. I finally broke.

Gibson painted ornaments and we made some awesome magnets with pictures I took. I will share the link. They turn out so cool. Cheap to make too. We tailored them to each recipient.

In past years I have made cross stitich ornaments, one year I made a cross stitch pattern on glass jars that said Happy Kiss Mas, and put hershey kisses in them.  This year,  I made handmade soap, and bath fizzies to make spa baskets,  I made handmade coasters, using pieces of old maps and put sealer on top of them, I made a tie wreath for my MIL, I kept her father's old ties, cut them and rolled and sewed them around to a wire wreath form.  Also am making felt animal ornaments for the kids.  still working on things, hope I get it all finished.  Oh and I am giving cookies to A's preschool teachers.
