I agree with baked goods.

People who make baked goods to give – how do you package them?  Just curious – this always seems to be my downfall!

I crochet, so there tend to be one or two home made gifts every year. However, this year I’ve been super pregnant all of November (due date in 2 days) so the crocheting have taken insane proportions as it’s pretty much the only thing I have energy for. This means that everyone and their uncle will get something crocheted for Christmas. Made this hat for my husband’s niece, which was a fun learning curve, as I’ve never added a lining before:

I’ve also made a bunch of little elephants for a handful of toddlers:

While the adults get various forms of scarfs/cowls:

This year I’ve decided to do like hot chocolate mixes in jars with a recipe and then a mug for some of my coworkers and friends, also doing the sugar cinnamon almonds. 🙂 I’m not too crafty, but I’m trying!

MsGinkgo: Thank you! Since I can’t do much these days crocheting has really helped to keep me sane. Relatively sane at least, I’ve also made homemade gift bags for all the stuff I made… I blame it on being environmentally conscious (not using paper), but really it’s because I need to kill time before baby arrives. 🙂 Just finished this bag for a little girl we know (present goes into the “tummy”):

We’re waiting for our e-pics, so hopefully just doing a basic framing job with those for some family members this year. But in the past I’ve done the chocolate chip layered cookie mason jar gift and the tins of goodies and treats (shortbread, sugar cookies, fudge, and other little treats). 

 

jenilynevette:  Yum! Would you be willing to share one of your fudge recipes? I’ve been dying to try some new flavours of it regular than the typical chocolate fudge I make for Xmas.
