Is anyone planning to make a few of their Christmas gifts at home?  I'm considering making them for teachers and friends this year, but I'm not sure what to do.  Any ideas?

I did handprint butterfly pictures for the grandparents last year as well as gift baskets filled with homemade marinara, salsa and store bought pastas and chips. I haven't come up with any thing year so far, but my mom made me a crocheted scarf for my birthday and have gotten a ton of compliments on it at work and while I am not great at crocheting, its a simple enough one that I "could" do it. I am thinking about doing it for a few co-workers as we do tend to exchange small gifts at the holidays.
