Craft Stores have plastic tree ornaments that come apart. I'm going to stuff some with M&M's in peoples favorite colors.

Michael's has some darling little metal pails.  And that reminds me of something I did like 10 Christmases ago - I bought blank paint cans (they're like $3 a piece at the hardware store) and printed a paint can-like label describing the cookies I had made and put inside, plus little tidbits to personalize it for each friend.  I'd forgotten about that.  I just might do it again now!

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

A friend of mine is making fabric reusable grocery bags to put all her presents in for gifts - okay, not for the ton of stuff under the tree but you know what I mean - for teachers and whatnot. 
I am going to be making fabric wrapped clothesline coil baskets to put presents in this year.  They are relatively quick and easy to make - one good sized basket takes me about 4 hours now if it doesn't have a lid.  I've gotten it down to a science now Grin

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!

Thanks for all the fabulous ideas!  I ended up using the takeout boxes, which made it easy for everyone to stuff other goodies inside and take them home! Grin

Thanks again!

i have the same problem, just a little more problematic.
i don't want to use mugs, but i want the "something i use instead" to be a little present too.

Hey, along the same lines as a reusable grocery bag, you could put stuff in an oilcloth lunch bag
