    Question Christmas Ideas?

    Advertisements
    Hey guys!

    Ok so here goes. I don't have a large amount of money to spend on Christmas gifts this year so my idea was making little gift baskets for everyone. I want to put a bracelet and ring and stuff (like what I make) in the basket but I want to have more.

    So my question is, what kind of functional crafted gifts have you guys seen that might be easy to replicate?

    Make food. It's super cheap (depending on what you make) and everyone will be so impressed that you took the time to make something rather than buy something. I did that one year that I was totally broke for presents. I also requested that no one buy me anything in exchange, I was very open about the fact that I couldn't afford anything for anyone else.

    I used bakerella.com to find cute ideas and recipes for holiday treats. The one that really hit home for most people were the Oreo Truffles. I bought inexpensive holiday tins ($1 each at Walmart) and mini cupcake liners to put them into. I also used white and regular milk chocolate bark and made designs by dripping white chocolate bark over the finished truffles. Everyone was thrilled and it came out so cute! I also did sugar coated pecans, although this year that could be extremely expensive because of the drought going on in Texas.

    I love ornaments, and if my in-laws would send me chocolate instead of the (very kind, but useless) stuff they usually send I would love them like 1,000 times more than I do already.
