Gift Ideas??

Does anyone have any gift ideas that are easy and fun to make and receive? I was thinking of doing cookie mixes in jars, but that seems so boring, are there any different recipes out there for those? Thanks!

Do you have a certain type of gift that you would like to make such as "jarred gifts", "edible gifts", "beads", "hand painted".....?

If you could narrow it down a bit, it would be easier to make suggestions.



Thanks,
Tami

Gift Ideas

For now I am going to stick with the cookie mixes in jars. Is there something out there that looks a little nicer than plain old chocolate chip?? Gift baskets, too, I was considering, but I am not sure what kind to give to everyone yet. Those would be good because they can be more personal. Thanks!

I just love to do gift baskets with a theme. I usually do the cookie mixes, hot chocolate ,coffee creamers,flavored coffees the list is endless. And they are inexpensive too. I shop all year long for items for baskets for example for a coffee drinker I would use a flavored coffee and coffee creamer a pretty mug,maybe some chocolate dipped spoons and a mug rug or coaster put it all in a pretty little lined basket and you got a personal homemade gift. I make my hotchocolate and other mixes too. to line a basket you just pick out a material you like grab a hot glue gun measure the material to fit and glue. Or you can use store bought items like bath items and a candle all in the same fragrance and a good book with a tea cup and tea bags. I haven't done homemade soaps and stuff yet but I'm thinking about it. baskets are my favorite to do. I do one every year for my sister with a different theme. I plan early and pick stuff up. One year I did a chicken basket for her. I got a pretty picnic type basket, cookbook,seasoning,marinade,kitchen timer,magnet and a frozen whole chickenand other things too. She loved it. I've done movie baskets with a favorite movie, popcorn, snacks, candy, movie rentals ,pizza gift certificates, and a 6 pk of beer too. just think of something some one likes or does and go with it.they can be very simple with a few items or very elaborate with alot of items it all depends on how indept you want to be. I prefer simple.

Bring 1 cup of water to a boil Stir in gelatinuntil dissolved. Add remaining water and salt and fragrance. Add a few drops of food coloring if desired. Cover the top of jar with netting or material,and tie with a ribbon.. Attach the following saying on jar.
"Here's a little something thats cute by far. Its a liquid when poured into a jar. It's not to be eaten. Its not for your belly.Its to freshen your room.It's called "Smelly Jelly"!
