Long story short, this woman has been caring for my pets (in the picture above) while I've been out of town unexpectedly for about a month now.  I don't really have the money to pay her what she deserves for doing this for me. But since I do have a large stash of craft supplies I figured I could put together a pretty awesome thank you gift basket.

Here's where I need help....I have no idea what to make!  I can crochet, knit, embroider, and do some basic sewing. Anyone have some ideas to help me out?  Also she has three cats and a pug, I figured I could slip some gifts in for them too.

Tea or coffee based
- Tea cozy
- Mug Rug
- Coasters
- Recipes of your favorite tea cookies...maybe with a jar of ingredients all ready for eggs and butter.

Winter readiness
- hat and scarf set
- mittens or gloves
- fingerless mittens

for the pets
- catnip cat toys, little crocheted or knitted balls or mice stuffed with catnip
- coat for the pug
- crocheted frisbee (search for it, or look in the tut area in toys)
- pet bed stuffed with wood chips or stuffing

you can add as you want, but maybe this will help get you started.

Must craft....must craft.....

I don't know if this is too late, but a throw blanket, pet toys, or a shawl might be good. Previous comments ideas are great too. Also a nice card of course Cheesy
