I've been trying to decide what to do gift wise for my family this Christmas.  I just started playing the harp 4 days ago.  Renting it and lessons are a birthday/Christmas gift from my dad.  Very few others in my family know about it yet.  I've got some Christmas music books on the way to start learning songs.  I want to bring the harp to our family gathering and surprise everyone with it and playing music.  I know my mom and grandmother will love it, but I feel that I should do a little more. 

I'm trying to think of something that little that I can make to go along with it.  I thought about trying to record the songs and make CDs to give out, but I don't know how well I'd be able to record.  Never tried it before.  My skills are also a bit lacking at the moment.  I'm not sure if I'll want the permanent memory of what I sound like now.

Any ideas of other things I could do to supplement the live music?  I'm working with family members from 29-89.  I wouldn't mind baking things like banana nut bread and cookies, but I did that two years ago.  My biggest craft hobbies include everything with fibers from crocheting to weaving to sewing, but I'm open to just about anything.  Or should I just attempt to do the CD?

you could have a friend take an artsy looking photo of you with the harp with a digital camera, upload it to your computer and use a program like paint shop pro to edit it, give it an aged look, print it out and either put it on the front of prepacked christmas cards or make your own. along with it you could also give out little goody bags of finger foods or cookies that they can nibble on while you play. you could even put a copy of the cd in with the card so that those who want to remember can keep the memory. you could even make it a tradition.
