    Oh and of course the herbal rice bags. I use mine every night to keep my toes warm.

    I'm doing inexpensive mugs, with mug rugs and teabags or cocoa tucked in the mugs. Also making the dry layered cake mixes with recipes attached to quart canning jars. Bet I can find a little fabric to attach to the top of the jars.

    I'm making some small wall decorations by using either a wooden spoon or plastic spoon, spatulas work to, that have a hole at the top to use to hang. Got some cheap fake flowers from the dollar store, hot glue them to the spoon or spatula, then put a ribbon in the hole as a hanger. Have made these for years and they cost is very minimal. I get the spoons and spatulas from the thrift store usually about 50 cents each, and I buy ribbons throughout the year to use. Everyone usually likes them.

    I am going to make some fabric baskets (see pic). These are last years and I filled them with cellophane bags of home made biscuits or some bath products.

    Similar tutorial is on the Pink Penguin blog (do a google search).
