How about a set of tote bags for groceries?

The best gift I ever gave my mom was a 12" quilt block, sent every month for a year, with the theme being the season or holiday (ie: Snowflake for Jan, hearts for Feb., etc) My husband made a plaque that I painted white and wrote with a Sharpie paint pen: Celebrate. Ea. quilt was attached with Velcro, but you could buy one of those wire hangers if you don't have a source for a plaque. She so looked forward to a new package every month!

Great ideas, everybody. I'm impressed that someone is planning ahead for Christmas. Great idea.

I made my DIL the kitchen towels that fasten on the oven handle or cupboard knob. I picked up some nice hand towels from the $ store and the square hot pads that had the loop. I sewed the towel to the center of the hotpads and added a button to go through the loop to fasten. She uses them on the knob by the kitchen sink all the time and I will be making her a new set this Chrustmas.

Does her kitchen have a place to hang them? Mine does not - the oven and refrigerator handles to not have "holes" in them.

How about a manicure tool holder? I keep thinking about making myself one to hold my clippers, scissors, files, etc -

I'm loving all the ideas here. Always on the lookout for small gifts.

I think your idea for the the table toppers is great. I would make them coordinating rather than matching.

These are some chenille potholders with coordinating towels that I recently made for a friend. I love the chenille look, as it's quite different from most potholders you see.

Have fun making something for your sister. That's quite thoughtful! Great to be thinking ahead, too.

The bowl cozies are something she wants to learn to make this summer so those are out too.

I'd still love to hear any suggestions and links that you have.

Thanks!
How about putting together a gift basket that includes everything she needs to make the bowl cozies, and maybe throw in a recipe for mug rugs, also?

Closet organizers are a welcome gift. Maybe buy a pattern and make lots of coordinating items.
