Had to make a thread for this pagan/wiccan/celtic holiday. I like to make things specific to wicca...

OK ladies, so what are your ideas for Yule this year? What gifts are you making for others or what are you making for your home?? The rest of my family celebrates christmas, but i am still handcrafting most if not all of my gifts this year. This is my list (still in the planning stages!)

Mom: Gingerbread Apron
Oma & Opa:
Crystal: Crochet Tarot Bag
Richie: (any ideas for a wolf lover??)
Karen & Matt:
Luke & Anna: name plaques
Dia: ??
Tony: ??
Sam: Wii day coupons
Sarah:
Beth:
Kahlan:
Tara:
Carly:
Reasin:
Yule party:

Also, i'm attending a Yule celebration where its custom to bring handmade gifts for everyone- anyone have any ideas for around 15 people??

Looking forward to chatting with others crafting for this winter holiday.

I sew, paint unfinished wood, sketch, make jewelry, crochet a bit, loom knit, and sew. Pretty much if I can get my hands on it to learn, then I will know it. Maybe not perfectly, but enough for a hobby.

My boyfriend's mom is wiccan/pagan and her and her friends each have little wreathes made of dried vined with a silver string star in the center along with some small silk flowers hot glued to the bottom. Maybe that would make a good group present. They hang them from their rear view mirrors with fishing line. You could do different color string or flowers for each one perhaps.

Or alternately maybe you could make some small long cloth bags that are drawstring with incense sticks inside.

I am thinking of making beaded bracelets for each of my nieces, although then I don't know what I will do for my nephews.  I also considered knitting scarves for my kids, or maybe for my mother-in-law and other family members as well. 

For the item you have to make 15 of to exchange, what about doing a beaded snowflake ornament?  My grandma used to make them, so maybe everyone else thinks they are cheesy, but I just think they are so special!  I guess it depends on how elaborate and/or expensive you want to get.

What about wine mulls?  Pomander balls (and other clove-studded fruits) are traditional for Yule, and it's something wonderful to share with anyone in your life who enjoys wine.

Someone once gave me a hand-broom which had greenery tied to it, which I think would make a great yule gift.

Consider baking, as well.
