I think it would be great to give a nice thick wide coaster with a bottle of wine! You could make the colors match their decor, the holidays, or... dare I say, their favorite team:@) A set of 4-6 thirsty, washable coasters for glasses would be a nice gift too.
While these ornaments may seem involved, I promise that once you get started it will click.
The best thing about them is, the focal point in the middle can be anything, just pick a favorite theme, cartoon character, sports team HERE, anything. They're a good stash buster too.
I've provided a link to a great tutorial.
What I love about this idea is, it's a fun gift for younger folks and pretty guy friendly too, minus the flower button of course:@)
It's a great use for old or thrifted jeans, super simple to make and just cute!
What can I say, if you have little girls in your life you probably have Barbie too.
This pattern is pretty easy and fun to make. Even a novice like me can whip up a sweater in a few hours.
Many more Barbie ideas can be found HERE.
A great craft the kids can help make. This is a special gift if you include the background story too.
My crochet "skills" are marginal at best but even I can whip up these useful and pretty dishcloths in a couple hours.
They are usually pretty well received too.
and last but not least...
Remember, the elf comes to live with you the day after Thanksgiving,
so if you want to start this tradition with the kids or grands you'll need to have an elf ready this month.
(That's Elfina riding in on Earl yelling "the holidays are coming, the holidays are coming!!!)

Happy holiday crafting everyone:@)
