Happy early holidays everyone!

My mom has to do a secret Santa thing at her work, and it has to be
homemade. She's stumped on what to make though. She has been sitting thinking of ideas and no ideas come. So I thought perhaps all you crafty people could help us come up with ideas. She has the whole month of December, and she knits fast and crochets fast and does pretty much every craft out there, so all suggestions will be considered.

Please give us your thoughts, as we really need them.

I've made scores of plastic bag holders.  Very easy to make and everyone finds them very useful to recycle plastic grocery bags.  The original instructions came from The Twin Cities Green Guide but the website isn't there anymore and I don't know how to post my PDF copy ....so here is a link to a site that posted its own version of those instructions:  http://www.doitgreen.org/print/78

This year, I've also made pincushion cuffs http://keyka.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/10/pincushion-cuff-tutorial.html out of scraps.  The pattern is really easy to follow. 

I took the handmade pledge at birth

How about a lap blanket or shawl? I'm concentrating on giving gifts that will keep people warm so they don't have to shell out more money for heat during the economic unfun-ness.

I made some melt & pour soaps for my coworkers.  They're really easy but look very professional.
