It started when I had my first child, seven years ago. The main reason being that I was skint. I made footprint cards for the family and put them in photo frames as a present. Little did I know it would start a bit of an obsession with homemade Christmas presents.
Each year I make them for family and friends. See my post here for great ideas for grandparents. I’ve been busy buying all the things I will need, but with a 7 week old I’ve yet to start making them.
This is what I’m planning to make this year. I must remember to take photos!
Snowman soup. Blog post to come.
Hot chocolate set with mini glass milk bottles.
Snowman poop and reindeer droppings
Fudge in a tin. Blog post to come.
Brownie mix in a jar.
Mulled wine gift set with mason jugs and paper straws.
Frozen playdough in a jar
salt dough footprint
I have found Kilner jars reasonably priced in Wilkinsons and I have also found some plain jars in the 99p store 🙂
This year I’m also making my gift tags. Blog post to come but here is a sneaky preview.
