    Were these in the Christmas section?

    I have heaps and heaps of ideas (like nearly 100) pinned on Pinterest with cheap Christmas presents to make and Christmas cooking ideas (eg. Baileys fudge, peppermint bark, body scrubs) pm me if you would like to follow my boards to get some ideas. Not sure how much of it I will be doing this year as I'm due the 27th of December

Leave it in your pantry and shake every week. In three months, give or take, it's ready

    I'm planning on finding some cheap 100ml bottles to divide the essence into and voila, 7 Christmas presents!

    I second this. I found the vanilla beans I bought on eBay much nicer than the ones in the shop as well. I made them for Xmas last year. I also made limoncello that worked out really well

    Even better if you can get some organic vanilla beans.. The flavour is far more intense then your regular store bought ones. I use to use them to make kahlua.

    I'm subscribing as well.... Sooo many great ideas..I'll add these ideas too
    I've been keeping my glass jars, have brought glass paint & will get the kids to paint them buy simple tapper candles and ta dah.. Candle holder, might also fill the jar with rocks or sand to hold in the candle..
    With lemons .. Lemon slice is always a favourite .. I freeze mine & it's super easy to make .. I put it in Chinese containers that the kids decorated with Xmas Ribbon & stickers
