I need ideas! My family draws names for Christmas, exceptions being any kids and my parents. But if I get one of the coffee drinkers, I figure I can make a big batch of biscotti. But I'd like to add something else to that, either hand made or store bought. What-besides a mug-would go along with that?


hmmm...coaster?? coffee mug cozy??

Chocolate dipped spoons, a small snack, like chocolate dipped pretzels, individual tubes of flavored coffee, tea wallet....hope these ideas helped.

I have completed seventeen scarves for my students, and another item for my personal swap.  Now working on the large item for my Twelve Days of Xmas partner.

Welcome to all new pledgers for this craft-a-long!

So glad to see all the excitement and chatter going so far for this. I've just started thinking about my list for giftees/Hallowe'en/Christmas/etc and this is what I've got so far:

September:
 - put up pickles for Christmas gifts 40/60-70odd jars completed (dills, bread & butter, sandwich, beet)
 - put up jams for Christmas gifts 0 completed (list to make: sour cherry, strawberry, blueberry, jazzy blueberry, cherry-berry, raspberry, orange marmalade)
 - put up jellies and sauces for Christmas gifts and throughout the year: 0 completed (list to make: applesauce, spaghetti sauce, jalapeno pepper jelly, red pepper jelly, brandied cranberries)
 - gift for my Mother-in-law: NO idea whatsoever... her birthday is the 21st.

October:
 - make kiddos costumes - littl'un wants to be a dragon, big'un wants to be a knight
 - make hallowe'en party decorations and gift bags for kids (9 kids)


Giftees (not recieving ONLY pickles/jams):
Hubby

Littl'un

                   -Warlock costume
                   -Rogue costume
                   - Imp costume (The Warlock's "demon")
                   - Baby Murloc (A sort of Fish-Man)

               - Stockings for family
Daughter   - Playmat for My Little Ponies, Felt Food, Chalkboard Mat
 Son         - Robot costume, big bean bag, Chalkboard Mat, Finger Paint,

I drew my sister for our Christmas gift giving.
                - 5 yr old son - Black Angry Bird Hat
                - 3 yr old son - Yellow Angry Bird Hat
                - Pig Pillow  (I'm also giving her those cardboard bricks so they can           
                                 play Angry Birds.)
                - Card bowls (one Christmas and one everyday) using a tute I have 
                        bookmarked here
