No one has much money this year so we are trying to keep christmas small. I say hooray for that! I'd like to make or get something sentimental for my mom and stepdad, dad, boyfriend and grandma.  what are some creative sentimental gifts you have given or recieved?  ( anything crafty is great!)  I don't have time to knit something for everyone of them or I would.  Next year I will start knitting projects in July!

I don't know exactly what you mean by sentimental, but perhaps you could make photo magnets or photo keychains, these can be made with shrink plastic or printed onto card and covered with clear sticky-back plastic (self-adhesive vinyl), maybe a mini accordion scrapbook or an altered books.

My younger siblings gave my mother these http://www.fun-vouchers.org.uk/ before and she loved it - it had so much more meaning to her then something bought.

Maybe you could do a family recipe book. I don't really know what kinda things are sentimental to your family, probably photo-based things are the best. Smiley

I second the photo idea.  Even copies of favorite or new photos framed are well appreciated gifts  (and pretty easy and cheap).  You could pick up some inexpensive frames and decorate them.

One year my sister took a photo of my grandmother as children and a photo of my great great grandparents, scanned them, cleaned them up and printed copies.  She framed the copies and gave them to my mother who really loved them.  I got copies too and love having them framed and on display.
