Here are some of the goodies I've made for my boyfriend's parents the last couple years. They're super traditional so I didn't get too crazy!
First, some ornaments I made out of felt and then embroidered:
(I put they're names on the stocking - Lou Ann and Bob - and left the stocking open so they can put candy or whatever in it)
And, I embroidered this fleece throw for them last year, and remembered to take a picture this time when I saw it on their couch. I drew the acorn and pinecone designs.
