OK I just kinda posted this on the save $ thread and then figured perhaps it would warrant a thread all it's own? some of my homemade/semi cheap gift ideas: recipe in a basket with the dry ingrediants &/or dollar store kitchen tools. handmade stamped note cards in a small box with a dollar store fancy pen and some stamps. for rubber stamp lovers: a set of note cards and the set of stamps you used to make them. dollar store candle, decorated with stamped tissue paper that has been heat gunned onto the candle (PM me for specific instructions) special picture in a dollar store frame with a note about why it is special. 2 glass builders blocks, with a small set of white Xmas lights inside, tied up with a ribbon (like a gift package) and fake flowers glued on top, looks gorgeous when it's lite up.
