What do you make for an 18 year old boy?? I would love to hear any ideas!! Thanks! Smiley

 My boyfriend is one of those 18 year old boys, and getting older, they're definitely harder to get stuff for! What kind of stuff is he into? Video games, movies, hobbies.. is he going to college or anything soon? Does he drive?

Well, I'm new to this whole thing. BUT, I loving it so far. I really need to get on the ball. THe only thing I know I'm doing is crocheting an angel wall hanging for my mom, and it's almost done. I already have all the fabric and the pattern to make my daughter a nice quilt for her bed. The ones I'm really stuck on are my sister and her three kids- boy (18), girl (16) and another girl (11). What do you make for an 18 year old boy?? I would love to hear any ideas!! Thanks! Smiley
I know...make him a "how to get a job" wall hanging!
Do you have any pictures of 16 yo and her great grandma?  I think she would love something like that...maybe transfer it to a pillow?
And for the A-train...a muzzle?  Just kidding...what about magnets for her locker, or art supplies.
And for the mom, I don't know but it will be better than getting her computer fixed.  I'm sure she would like a throw, we like and use ours.  She would love something Grandmother related too.

Glad to see you here!  Try and post some of your work, the craftsters here will love it.

Wallsmom - it all depends what they are into! My brother is 20 this year and last Christmas I made him a bedspread and matching pillows (he's one of those guys that will sleep on the bare matress for ages and realise how icky it is Tongue)

For the girls - the eldest: does she like jewellery? Music? sports?
the younger: what is she into? How about a make your own jewellery kit if she likes jewellery?

Let us know and we'll help as best we can. Tongue

I've started making things for Christmas already. I went on a card/tag making binge a few weeks ago so I have lots of cards and tags ready to go as well.

Co-workers / kids teachers: knitted travel mug cozies, beaded bookthongs, may add in some store bought items yet and/or do some baked goods and make these up as a gift basket of some sort.

Homemade items for the kids besides the bigger stuff we usually buy for them:

DD (12) - crocheted scarf, pillows for her bedroom, maybe other crafty stuff for her room (depends on how much free time I have when I go back to work in September!)

DS (10) ?

DD's (7) & (9) - earrings, jewelry, scarf, maybe items for their rooms

Hubby -- ?? -- anything chocolate or chocolate covered (within reason! LOL)

Sister - she collects all things ladybug so I'm trying to think of some cool ladybug thing or other to make for her.

Everyone else in the family lives far away so I would have to mail out stuff so maybe more travel mug cozies, more beaded bookthongs and gift-cards for their favourite bookstore and/or coffee place or something along that line.

Thanks Sweets!

My in-laws have 12 grandchildren and are always gaining more. Any suggestions for people who LOVE being grandparents more than anything in the world?

A large photoframe with the collage inserts for heaps of small pictures?
A 'family tree' blanket with pics of all the kids (printer transfer paper rocks) and room for more?
A family scrapbook with pictures of all the kids and a drawing/letter from each of them?
A windchime with pictures hanging from the tines (encased in resing would be nice)?

I am out of ideas for my grandmother-in-law, and my husband and mother-in-law always say they have no idea. She does not need blankets and will not wear house shoes. She sits at home and crochets most of the time, but has more hooks and yarn than anyone knows what to do with. Any suggestions?
Does she need a hook roll?
Or maybe one of those bucket organisers with lots of pockets and room for yarn. I have also seen people squish polymer clay over crochet hook handles to make them more comfortable.
A yarn organiser might be handy too, or an organiser that sits over the arm of a chair.

EternallyEve--thank you! Those are great ideas. I'm going for a visit in early November, so I'll scope out her craft stash to see what needs organizing.
