Default gifts for next christmas, i need ideas

I go to a meeting, and our meeting before christmas, we have a candle light vigil.
I used a few of my candles i made for our house warming last night. I took the little
tea lights in the small glass jar. They had sand from Bermuda, with some fish netting
and some shells.

I decided to make those little candles for next year to give out to everyone. what kind
of ideas do you have in mind? I would like to do garland with poinsettias. but my husband,
who is Jewish said it wasn't appropriate for the rest of the Jewish people in our group.
I agreed, so now I have no idea. I'd like to have an idea so I can get the stuff while it's
still available.

thanks for all of you for helping me.
happy holidays.

Could you make the candles you used last night and give them as gifts next year? If I had attended the meeting, I'd be happy to receive the candle.

Have you checked on Pinterest under "Candles" to see if there is an idea there that you can use? Outside of that I'm totally blank...sorry.

Since you did sand and shells this year, what about fake snow for next year? Blue is for Hanukah, right? So maybe some prepunched snowflakes that are blue tones? There's an idea on Pinterest, I think, about making the outside of a jar look like snow by using Epsom salts and something else (forgot). Then the person decorated the ridges at the top of the jar with twine wrapped around a few times and the bow of twine. She stuck an artificial pine cone branch in with the twine. Really cute!
