It's almost November. For those of us who make most of our Christmas presents, it's definitely time to be working on it.
So I thought I'd start it off with something about things I have made for Christmas and hope other people would chime in with their own ideas:
home made soaps and candles scented with my essential oils
heat/cool neck packs (I don't know what to call these, but like this:
Mine are filled with rice with sage and lavender mixed in. When you
heat the pack, it gives off fragrance from the herbs, very soothing.
Jars of herbs
Packets of home grown seeds
Home made herbal teas, mostly from my herbs (see recipes I have posted
Garden / flower photos framed for hanging
Baked goods in re-used cookie tins, including a variety of biscottis
Various knitted things, scarves, sweaters, placemats
Hand lettered plaques with nice sayings or poems (either on wood or just
Haven't done it yet, but I thought this year I would try lotions and/or bath
oils with the essential oils.
When I did tea bags, I put them in nice handpainted wooden boxes.
Last year I gave my son a nice wooden box full of mom's favorite recipes.
Many of the smaller things get combined into gift baskets (baskets are very cheap at thrift stores)
So what are you making for Christmas?
