Last minute gifts

It's almost Christmas.
The shops are busy.
It's too late to order online.
What are you going to do?
Why not make a little something to give to your friends or family?!

Here are some ideas of things you could make 
(with a little creative spark, and not much else):


The one shown above is magnetic, but that requires magnetic tape which is not easy to find. If you don't have some then you could use photos, old Christmas cards, or your own drawings to add a personal touch to a 'normal' one. Add a ribbon and you have a lovely addition for someone's stocking. 

Use some photos of last year. Either use a computer or cut them out and stick them onto card. Attach together and voila. Why not add family birthdays and occasions for an added personal touch.

Family memento DVD
If you have a video camera and have recorded events throughout the year, then why not put the best bits onto DVD. A great one for grandparents.

Music Mix CD
Buy and download some of their favourite songs. Put them onto a CD (or straight onto their MP3 for a lovely surprise).

Coupon book
What is your partner or your parents always wanting you to do? Make a booklet which vouchers that allow them to make you do those useful things you would rather not do. (Just make sure you're willing to actually do them when they cash them in).

What crafty gifts have you made in the past?
