    We painted a gnome for the girls Nan and Pop! They love their garden and it needed a gnome!! (after watching gnomeo and julitte) I gave my best friend a fair trade recycled from old sari's hand bag, she was IN LOVE! We also gave our pastor (of our church) a $ gift for his family. I LOVE giving! Everyone else in the family got a picture frame of the dds on santas lap and dd1s first school photo. The dds got ABSOLUTLEY spoiled this year!!! They got a TV for their toy room and doll house!

    My favourite gift that I gave this year is an apron I made my dad. It has a hand towel sewn on, and special pockets for tongs/wooden spoon etc. I also bought him a cookbook and new oven mits. I think he'll love it! (give it to him today)!

    The best things I gave this year were to my SIL, a poster from spineless classics. It is the entire text of her favourite book printed into a silhouette illustration from the book.
    I also had a custom address stamp made for my mum from etsy.

    I LOVE gift giving. I take great pride in finding personal presents and then wrapping them up beautifully

    I gave my sister an old style world map where you scratch off the places you have travelled to. She loves old maps and loves travelling, so I was very excited to find that gift! I also got her a good quality mortar and pestle.

    I got BIL some of his favourite tea from T2 and a huge tea cup to drink it in (he loves tea, and always complains that cups aren't big enough lol).

    I bought Mum some collectible figurines that she has been wanting for ages. She hasn't found them anywhere but I found them in a shop in Bris

    I bought Step-Dad an Egyptian cotton towel with his special name from DS embroided on it (DS calls him Frufru). We also bought him a coffee mug because his last one broke - he likes having his own coffee mug. The mug has special meaning because DS picked it out - it has dinosaurs on it Little did we know that once hot water is poured into it, the dinosaurs disappear, leaving only their fossils on the cup - cool! He loved it.

    My Dad received a really good quality, heavy wooden chopping board. He loves cooking and always complains about not having one, but never gets around to buying one. And we bought him a bottle of his favourite scotch.

    My eldest sister (who loves cooking too), received some m-cups - the babushka doll measuring cups. She adores babushka dolls, so the pressie was extra special. I also got her the first season of Heston's feasts.

    I got my godmother some nice bright jewellery and three glass jars filled with assorted lollies and chocolates. She loves accessorising, she loves chocs & lollies, and she collects glass jars - win!

    I bought godbrother a new wallet which he has been pining for - I chose one with old school tattoos on it (he loves tatts). He is also obsessed with white chocolate, so I did up a white chocolate pack - white kitkat, white timtams, white lindt balls, block of milky bar kid & white choc drops.

    I bought my SIL a new board game. Her and my sister *love* playing board games so she was quite stoked.

    I bought DS1 a retro red trike and DS2 some wooden toys. Plus they got books, musical instruments, crafts etc from Santa

    DS2 Think his airport is just the best, I got him toy cars too

    DH like his ipod (shuffle) but I need to get a connection thing so he can use it in his car. Which is what I got it for.

    mum and dad got a special cake tin and lollies

    Fake grandma (we unofficially adopted her) got 2 flowers, 5 small fish and large shark fridge magnets that the kids and I made. She collects fridge magnets.

    We have two nieces (12 & 10 yo) who live in country QLD and with my SIL's permission, we bought the girls return airfares to Syd to spend Easter hols with us. I think I'm more excited than they are! So they had something to use now, we also gave them some goodies from nutrimetics and $50 each.
