Homemade Xmas gifts?
 
Was wondering if anyone makes homemade Xmas gifts? We made some really cool picture frames out of old wood my sister in requested 1.. My daughter and son made some really neat plates for grandpa and great grandma.. Took white plate n permanent markers baked on 350 for half hour.. So cool u can wash them :) also we made homemade sugar scrub.. Just wondered if any one else does anything homemade? http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/...ps087bc3be.jpg. http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/...psc1d59385.jpg. http://i1280.photobucket.com/albums/...psbb5f9e58.jpg

I love homemade stuff. I regularly make scrubs for myself. This year I made my boyfriend's mom a Santa suit ornament and I'm going to make some wall-hanging horseshoe decorations for some friends.

My former co-worker's wife made truffles (awesomely good, and I'm very picky about candies), then they packed them into boxes and gave away as X-mas presents.

I make fudge that I box up and give as presents. It is usually sold at the Farmers Market, so people really like it. I also make applebutter, give dried herbs grown on my farm and I crochet scarves and ornaments too.
Pretty much it is things for everyone else but my son, who gets the
"bought" goodies.

Lots of people give cookie plates, homemade candies, fudge, cakes, pies, bean soup mix, craft items. I've done pomegranete jelly, candied citrus peels, things that take a bit of extra effort,so people know you were really wanting to give them something special.

I made horsehair bracelets for my friends last year out of their horses' hair. I braided in cord in their tack color to make it even more special.

This year has been more hectic than usual, so I might not get anything done.

My best friend made me a personalized painted horseshoe with a picture of Aires in it to hang on the wall this year. I love it!
