Tightwad Tuesday: Homemade Christmas Gifts

I know many people are planning on making Christmas gifts this year due to a tight economy so I thought I would link up to a few ideas I've posted in the past and add a few new ones too.

White Chocolate Popcorn

Pumpkin Bread

Snickerdoodle Chex Mix

Inexpensive Christmas decorations

Gift Baskets

Kitchen Magnets

Finally, being a Tupperware consultant, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share a practical, yet usable gift idea. I've had customers fill some of our bowls and canisters with their homemade goodies to give as a gift. I've filled our spaghetti dispenser with a brownie mixture. Snack cups make a great holder for cocoa, tea, or coffee mixes. I've also filled Modular Mates and other bowls with pancake mix or soup mixes. This way the recipient receives yummy homemade gift in a very practical, reusable container. If you would like any of the recipes I fill these items with, just email me.

Hi Julie,
Thanks for your post about homemade gift ideas. It will be a handmade Christmas for us, and I'm always looking for ideas!
I'm a happy thrifter and eco/enviromentally-minded and I had a few other ideas,
1) plants (you can always repurpose something to plant it in and there are many plants you can grow by snipping off a branch of a plant that will grow roots, such as a spider plant or jade plant)
2) knitting-anything knitted or repurpose something from an old cashmere sweater with holes or any other old knitted item)
3) old books. For example, I have a friend getting her teaching credential in P.E. I am thinking about giving her a 1920's college textbook about teaching Physical Education. Another friend likes to cook, so I might give her a vintage apron and vintage cookbook.
4) Old photos. Who doesn't like a picture in a beautiful frame reminding them of your friendship?
5) I'm thinking of going vegan, so I might make up some vegan cookies or cakes with the attached recipe for friends, to show them vegan food can be really, really tasty.
