Topic tags/keywords: christmas resource question

Hey Everyone,

I know it’s a little early but I’m looking for small to medium Christmas Gifts ideas for friends and family. What have you done in the past? Last year I made a K-cup drawer for my Mother-in-Law not sure what to make this year.

Thank you for any input all of you may have.

Jayson

I had made the sleds that you can find plans on boatworks.com go to youtube and look up Christmas sled by boatworks. I personalized them and put either Merry Christmas or their last name . I did that with a silver pen from micharls craft store. I will try to post pictures in a little while. That was a cool and easy project

This item far and away has gotten the best response and actually used a bunch from family and friends as a Christmas present. Since I don’t cook I had no idea this could actually be a useful tool idea when I made a few.
Good luck…...............

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts to make. In fact your post has reminded me. I usually don’t start thinking about Christmas until a week or two before.

I would like to thank everyone for their ideas. The oven shelf tool is a great idea. Keep the ideas coming it is a while before Christmas so we have a little while yet

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I think I am going to do up some end grain cutting boards. I think I will even make a blog on the process because I have never bloged before so why not?
