Oh, just in time: I saw this just after I'd started my first Christmas present!

So far I have started a scarf for an undecided male. I have several who need gifts to choose from and it would suit most of them.

Key: just an idea, bought (commercial), bought (artisan/crafter)started, finished, wrapped, given.

I'll post a list as I think of it.
General:
Christmas cards Yikes, I just had a mammoth card writing session and I've realised that the 60 cards I made are insufficient! Yikes! I may just have to buy a pack for the rest.
Gift wrap, possibly re-usable bags. And tags, of course.
Crackers (of course)

Decorations:
Nativity expansion
Greenery swags
Something for above the front door
Something for 2 hanging basket hooks
Advent crown
Dearly Beloved: wants a workbench.
Mother: Brooch, box, candle, notebook, pen
Mother-in-law: silver memory wire, Knitted scarf, box, knitted Christmas pudding
Sister-in-law1: recycled coptic bound Notebook (she asked for it Shocked), 2 x necklaces
Brother-in-law-in-law: mad chain scarf.
Sister-in-law2: Leather bound notebook & silver ring.
Brother: Baskets, fridge mat, scrubbie, John Lewis Voucher
Nephew(6, autistic):finger puppet +?
Friends:
Friend R (male): Mugs
Friend S (female): Silver pendant
Their daughter (5) monster
Friend R (male) & Friend MS (female) Mead
Friends T & MA: foodie gift
Friends J & H: foodie gift
Their daughter (my Goddaughter, 7) fairy doll
Their son (5) dinosaur
Friends A & M, their children R & K, belts: purple & pink, elegant buckled & velcro'd,  patterned fabric, Wrist warmers in male colours, Shawl
Friends F & S: charity gift
Knitting club (about a dozen people?): knitting markers, clay handled crochet hooks, button collections
The team: calendars for all plus
P & V, brooch from kite line + bookmark
D & I, ? depends on what they need when they move house next month. brooch
P & family, nil else
M & G, nil else
J & M, Household goods.

Its got stuffing coming out the bottom because I took it all out to ship.  hehe.  My husband really didn't want to give it up.  He gave a proper snuggling before it left.
