Last year I made a preserve basket for each family. Jam and chutney's, 8 jars in total. I made pretty labels, recipe label as well and I did crocheted lid covers, which you could knit. As I DD was due a week before christmas, it meant I could hamper up in advance. Jams were cherry, strawberry, raspberry and peach. Chutney was runner bean, tomato and courgette and a jar of balsamic pickled onions. Margueritte paton recipes.
This year I am t-shirting everyone up with a slogan. Charity Shops and sale racks have provided me with a good selection of T's ready to bleach pen or t-shirt paint & freezer paper.
I made a skincare kit for 2 friends, but not sure it went down too well, this year I might try a craft swap or try my hand at sewing some little cushions. thankfully, we don;t buy for many friends, and family prefer meal vouchers. So very few gifts to actualy buy/make for
