    Oh a craft box is a great idea for the little kids, I can get some crayons, coloured paper, pipe cleaners, stickers, ribbons etc and put it all in a box that matches my wrapping theme!

    Love the idea of the skittle vodka, going to make some for a few friends of mine maybe.

    Also thinking of making a lemon and thyme salt infusion for someone, as I have so much thyme growing outside!

    I was planning on making lemon or brown sugar body scrubs last year, but it never happened. I was going to buy and eat of a lot of salsa and then use the jars with some pretty fabric and ribbon glued on the lid. Cheap!

    Anyone have any examples?
    I'm making them using the KaiserCraft kit. You just get the papers/paints to suit your theme.

    A bit fiddly, but if done right you can update them as your family grows too.

    Another thing I want to do is make personalised wine glass charms as a sort of place card for everyone. They are about $1.50 each on eBay or I can buy the rings and beads to do it myself for about $10 to make around 30. Everyone can take them home too, but since not everyone will have a wine glass I'm trying to think of other ideas too!

    if people dont drink real wine you could always buy non alcoholic wine from the super market. we have fronti or maison here. the taste really nice. that way you can still give everyone a glass ring thing.

    I'm thinking about making use of formula tins and making steamed puddings for people in them (thanks blissedout) and bulk pancake mix for those that don't like fruit cake.

    I would paint and decorate tins so they look all christmassy.
