    Ideas needed to boy/men easy inexpensive fast gifts

    I have a friend who is a violin teacher and I will be making Christmas gifts for her students again this year. I have a plan for the girls but she has male students ranging in age from 6 yrs to adult and I have no idea what I can make for them. Last year it was fleece scarves for everyone...easy enough. I only charge her $2 per gift so I need it to be fast, easy, and cheap to make.
    Thanks
    Vicki

    I think you should charge a bit more for the labor - I sure hope she is paying for the supplies.

    For the adults, a mug mat.

    I think the luggage tags are a great idea or how about the "bands" that you put around a hot paper coffee cup.

    Maybe next year you could do quilted stockings for all the students - they are real easy to do especially in assembly line sewing.
