1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / In desperate need of some Christmas gift ideas! on: November 05, 2014 07:42:35 PM
What are some things you make?  I have all kinds of people and demographics to make for, so anything and everything would be appreciated.  Maybe someone else will come along and find an idea from here too.  I remember years ago craftster had a Christmas gift idea board but I couldn't find it.

so post some of your most well received ideas and help me brainstorm.  I need it.

Very cool!  I dig this.  Really like your fabric choice and the color you stained/varnished the wood.  Great job.

I'm making several of these to pass out as Christmas gifts.  Thanks for the idea and simple tutorial.  It's like a bare bones jordy bag!

could you post a basic tutorial?  I've been trying to figure out how to make one of these myself.

Also you could paint one like a peppermint and then wrap it in clear cellophane, tie the ends so it looks like candy.  Could personalize them with names and give them as little ornament gifts. (i think i might try that one)

That my friends is a million dollar statement.  I'm off to do that this weekend, then i'm going to make a chain of peppermint candies!  rock on girl.  rock on

Okay, guys... this is my first post ever, so bear with me. I hope I do it right (I know, I know, it doesn't seem very complicated...).

Okay, these are the gifts I'm giving this year. I hope my ideas can help someone - I actually got a lot of them off of craftster!

Stockings - I found a post on craftster as to how to make high-heeled boot-looking stockings. They are very cute. I used zebra and cheetah print cloth, and some other pretty patterns. They have laces, and fur (fake, of course) around the top. I put in a lining, and I'm filling them with all sorts of little trinkets, like:
-Candycane Shotglasses w/ a peppermint shot recipe attached
-Homemade candy (the chocolate kind, with the molds)
-Pony-tail holders done up with ribbon and jingle bells (not in an ostentatious way!)
-Chapstick, nail files... those types of things you can get super cheap from Avon this time of year
-Marble magnets
-Decorated frames with photos from when we were little (these are for my oldest friends)
-Decopauged Altoid tins (or similar) in different themes
-Homemade CDs (I'm more into homemade cassettes, but no one uses them anymore!). I might do Christmas mixes, but it seems silly to give them a Christmas mix when the holiday is almost finished...

Cookies - Since my freshman year (I'm a senior now), I have done a marathon cookie baking weekend with a bunch of my friends and my mom... We bake hundreds of cookies, and make up piled plates to give to all the different departments at my college (Public Safety, Career Services, Library, etc.). It's always to thank the important people in your life that most people don't remember... Anyway, they are a HUGE hit... if it hasn't been stressed enough on here, baked goods always go over super well. I have some great recipes if you're interested, too.

Poker Table - I'm attempting this for my boyfriend. We'll see how it goes. So far I've only started buying the materials... I only recommend this if you have a lot of time and are willing to put down some cash. Buying the better products really does make a better table.

Reindeer Candy Canes - You probably know of this one - the candy canes you make into reindeer with pipe cleaners, google eyes, pom poms and ribbon. I have pictures if you want to see. I'm going to give them with scrapbooked Christmas cards to all of the random people on my list.

Chex Mix - Just like the cookies, always a hit. I buy cute tins at the dollar store (you have to go early, they're all out near Christmas) and fill them with chex mix. Just put a bit of red or green plastic wrap in the bottom. You can tie them up with ribbon, and it's a very cute gift. If you want a recipe, let me know!

Coasters - I'm using medium sized bathroom-type tiles. I'm putting squares of felt on the bottoms, and on the top I'm using all types of little pictures and things. I'll use ModPodge to laquer it all up at the end. For my boyfriend's sister and husband, I'm going to make them a set of Disney-inspired ones.

I suppose that's about it, so far. I hope I gave everyone some good ideas!
