I'm a new convert to needle felting (my pumpkins and pumpkin girls did turn out extremely adorable!), and want to use my favorite new medium for Christmas gifts for my mother & m-in-law, but am a little unsure what to do.  I was thinking nativity sets, but I've already given them other handcrafted nativities, and should probably branch out. 

What's your favorite needle-felted gift to give?

I don't even need detailed instructions or anything (I like to figure things out), just would love a brainstorm or recount of your past gifting. 

grazi!

Welcome to the felting section of craftster vfg  Smiley

As well as the answers you get here, have a browse through the completed projects.
I think these would make fabulous gifts

Also felted soaps might make lovely gifts too - although they aren't needle-felted
