I love the idea of handmade gifts, but this is the first year I've actually gotten it together early enough to make some. Okay, only having two couples to consider made it a whole lot easier. But I'm not going to let that diminish my sense of achievement.
So they'll each get a tote bag made out of cotton shwe shwe fabric with a light blue lining – all of them being regulars at their local farmers' market – and a set of coasters for my brother and his fiancée in colours that'll go in their living room. And I'll be making and putting some edible goodies in the totes closer to Christmas Day.
