Homemade pressies - any ideas?

The last few years I've made little gifts for my family and friends to go alongside other presents (knitted scarves, made scented candles in vintage glasses etc). Would like to do the same this year but am feeling short of inspiration. Any ideas? Needs not to be hugely labour intensive as I need to fit in alongside work/kids etc. Thanks in advance.

Soaps or bath salts are pretty easy.

Or make a few different types of fudge and put a couple of pieces of each into a little bag.

I make fruit mince fudge, bread and butter pickles, pickled onions and jam.
All very simple and delicious.
