We've cut our Christmas list way down, but I still like to include a fair number of family members. For those on my side of the family, I've taken to making goodies for them. They seem to like that, so I'll do that again. One thing they really seem to like is zucchini bread and DH wants to plant a garden this year and include a lot of zucchini. That would be great since it's so expensive to buy.
Shortly after this past Christmas, DH and I were shopping for a pot I had asked for, but he had forgotten to get for me. When we were about to check out, he noticed some neat Christmas platters on sale. They were very colorful and only 50 cents a piece. He said they would be great for piling on cookies and my zucchini bread and then giving as gifts, so we bought a bunch. I'm all set now.
I haven't made baskets in a while, so I think I'll do that again. I have all the supplies I need, I just have to have DH and DS clean off my table in the basement and I can make some baskets that can be filled with little items or just given as is. Great gifts. I make as many gifts as possible every year. It's fun and saves a lot of money. It just takes time, so I have to start in the summer.
