I am anxious to hear other ideas,too.
I thought about making small jars of red and green pepper jelly (they are in abundance at our farmers market right now) to give out to friends and neighbors. Thought they would look pretty all wrapped up in pretty celophane and curling ribbon.

I always make Christmas Breakfast baskets for our siblings, my mom and a few friends and neighbors. This year I've altered the Sonic Drive-in drink carriers with scrapbook paper and other embellishments and plan to fill them with a jar of hot chocolate mix or Christmas Tea Mix, a jar of homemade apple butter, a loaf of homemade quick bread, in a cello bag tied up with curling ribbon, and a bag of Hershey's kisses and peppermint candies, also tied up with curling ribbon.

The breakfast basket idea is very cute! Keep sharing your ideas, its fun to hear what everyone else is doing, its good inspiration to go off some idea then come up with something else.
Last year I made homemade soap that was layered white and red and smelled like peppermint. I also made candles in cute little tea cups or jars that I got at goodwill. They turned out adorable. I made some spicey nuts and placed them in jars and wrapped them very cute. This year I want to make sachets for your dresser drawers. I'll just take some cute fabric thats breathable (maybe chiffon), and cut into squares. Stuff with potpourri and sew. Tie with cute ribbons. I was thinking about making homemade limoncello. Thats something that I should start now, a few months in advance. But i'm not sure if I'm going to.

For some reason my boys enjoy my attempts at being crafty (all thumbs, honest). I am making them new rag quilts for their rooms. I would also like to knit them slippers (we have wood floors and they love 'skating' on them - well until the crashing part)

I am making handmade cards again this year!

As always, since I'm a seashell fanatic, I will be crafting seashell gifts.
