Holiday Gifts & Stocking Stuffers

Has anyone else gotten all their Holiday stuff sorted out already?

I have, and I'm pretty excited about it.

I got a Case IH hoodie for my dad that says "If it ain't red it stays in the shed!" since he's a farmer and loves Case IH and Farmall tractors.
I got a red plaid hoodie for my little brother.
And I got a really big Nine & Co wallet for my mom that'll fit all of her usual wallet stuff in it. She carries a lot of cards around for shopping.

Aside from all that, I got everyone a fun size pack of their favorite candies, and wrapped the candies up to put with their bigger gifts.

I'm going to be making them all stockings by hand and filling them with yummy munchables like caramel popcorn, tiger butter, and peppermint bark. I'll probably make them each a little gift basket full of skincare stuff as well, or include a couple items in the stockings.

I have an older brother and sister-in-law that I have yet to figure out what to get for them, but I will probably make them lots of edible holiday goodies and some treats for their sweet pit bull. Happy

What are you getting/making for your family and friends this year?

We have two auntie that come to us every year for Christmas. I love them but I never see them, so I don't know much about their interests or hobbies. I usually buy them gift sets from Boots, but it feels like I've made no effort so this year I was thinking about making them a hamper each filled with homemade things.
Does anyone have ideas what I could fill them with? I was thinking something along the lines of biscuits, lip balms, hand creams etc.

That all sounds awesome Happy I'm thinking about making a scarf for my BBF (who's like my honorary sister) and I want to make a matching one for myself. Your post just made me realize how awesome scarves are as gifts!

Thank you Monika. Me and my bffs wear scarves year round. It's an easy way to dress up your everyday look without breaking the piggy bank. An besides there no worrying about what size someone wear, if you give them a scarf.
