I TOTALLY forgot I have this pattern! They go together quickly, I might need to add that to my list. Or maybe for his birthday? ...it's only 2 months after Christmas...

UGH! I'm so jealous that you downloaded it! I forgot to get it when it was free Sad and just pinned it. I went to download today to start on them. Oh well - I'll push this one to the back burner!

I would have loved to have gotten the pajama eater pattern for free too. Darnit.  Sad

Love this idea!
Here's what I have so far, I'm a little behind so seeing everyone else's ideas has been really helpful, so thank you!

1. General Christmas Necessities:

I love these twine ornaments from Pinterest, they have this beautiful rustic feel and look pretty simple to make.

I typically also get some new ornaments from Pottery Barn or something every year because they are so pretty and between the DD and my clumsiness, we always manage to break a few through out the holidays. These beaded ornaments are beautiful Smiley

Holiday Cards:

I tried making them last year and while they came out pretty nice, it just took way too long. I'm cheating and going back to old faithful, christmas cards from Shutterfly. I haven't decided which ones, but I am loving these striped cards at the moment.

2. The hubbie
New sunglasses (he broke his really expensive pair last month)
Possibly this nice charbroil grill from amazon, I feel a little weird giving it to him in the winter, but oh well.

3. My Daughter
Ballet shoes and probably some other dance attire from Dancewear. Really good site for dance accessories.

4. My Sister
5. My Parents
6. His Parents

These are the important ones anyhow. This was a good idea to get me thinking about this, because before you know it, the holidays are here. I have much more work to do! Can't wait to see more ideas!
