I make baked good, and candy,  most of don't want anything since we all have whatever it is.  I do enjoy all of the baking though. When i am doing it i get tired of it and rarely eat any of it, but hubby is my quality controlled  and will sample all of it. But what it  really is , he has a big sweet tooth.

I don't even want to think about Christmas yet.

I like to bake for friends and neighbors that I wouldn't usually give a gift to normally. I also hand make one gift for my husband and our boys to go along with their store bought gifts. Last year, I crocheted my oldest a Minecraft Creeper scarf and hat set, sewed my youngest a blanket, and crocheted my husband a replica of the Tom Baker Doctor Who scarf. I still haven't figured out what I am making this year though.

I wish I could do that. However, I am not very crafty therefore I have to shop for my Christmas gifts.

I keep a list of names for those I do gifts for.  When I see a craft that I know someone will like, I make it for them and write it next to their name on the list.  (I work on these all year long.) 

 I've even made tins of homemade dog goodies (with healthy ingredients) for the 4 legged family members.

If I don't find a craft to do for someone, then it's a gift card.  For people that give "unexpected gifts"........I get disposable pans from Dollar Tree and fill them with Christmas cookies, fudge, & mini bread loaves and Christmas candies.   Tins with homemade caramel corn (or seasoned/or drizzled popcorn) are also easy & yummy.
