I'm posting these ideas because it will not matter if the recipients know ahead of time that this might be coming to them. Hopefully some of you who think you can't do homemade gifts because you think you can't bake or sew will enjoy these links!
Homemade Sugar Scrub
Bread in a Bag
Sewing Kit in a Jar
Hot Cocoa Cones
"Write Your Own Book" kit for kids
Hope these inspire you to think about making a few gifts this year - I personally love giving AND receiving homemade gifts - and I loved that just about anyone could make these!
