made mini bundt cakes for teachers last year - apple dapple cake & banana bread. did this in September and froze them all. it was great. Did a "dessert of the month club" for my father - kids & I deliver a homemade dessert the 25th of every month. And for my FIL I made a breakfast basket with some homemade oatmeal packets, flapjack mix, syrup, a little ham, and some homemade jelly. he loved it and asked for the flapjack recipe.

I really don't have time to do crafts. I wished I did. There are really cute crafts ideas in craft stores now a days. I guess I just need lots of encouragement to do things. Angiejo

It depends for me. One year I made a quilt for my boyfriend with pictures of his car on it. Sometimes I make Christmassy earings for the women in my family but my mom usually does that and I don't want to steal her thunder. I do love to buy gifts for people, but as a poor college kid, it can get to be too much and I end up making something. In the end, I think some people appreciate that I put time into their gifts.

Every year i make my grandma's a handmade gift (last year it was a scarf, year before that it was a bird house, year before that, a frame) but that's about the extent of my crafty christmas gifts.
I scrapbook like there's no tomorrow, but that's usually just for me.

I LOVE making gifts for people, such as gifts in a jar (not always food ones, either), and beaded or other crafty items. I'm taking up knitting, so hopefully there will be some knitted gifts as well

I try to and always start out on Dec 26 making something. The year always seems to get away from me tho. I do homemade chocolate and cookies for the guys in my office. One year I made a blanket for my aunt and uncle and I am working on one for my sister and her BF right now.

I love doing them and seeing someone's reaction that you did it just for them.

Keep the ideas coming...its great to hear new suggestions from people. Last year I made candles and bought wooden matches in boxes and covered the boxes in christmas wrapping paper and ribbons and stuff. They turned out adorable!

This year i have made a few beautiful bracelets for friends. It's personal and i put alot of thought into it like their favourite colour/shape for example. They're pretty neat.
