What are YOU making for Christmas?

My family doesn't really celebrate Christmas since we are Buddhist but we still put up Christmas trees and cut wonderful cakes.
So this Christmas I thought maybe I could be the secret Santa ! I was thinking of a Christmassy gift basket for every family member.
Guava scented sugar scrub, chocolate covered spoons, terrarium. . . But I don't think my basket will be all filled Happy any other DIY ideas?

I'm away from my family so all I have here is my boyfriend. My boyfriend loves the game League of Legends so I'm making him a plush from one of the game character: a Poro. its small and easy to make, but I'm still developing the pattern. He looks like this:

Fire Starters for my friends who camp or have fireplaces. It's "expected" of me now... lol. I save stuff all year to make them.

I'm making a full apron for my sister and a super hero neck tie for her husband. I'm also making a star trek apron for my boyfriend and a few little stocking stuffers that are yet to be determined for my son.

I'm making my friend a purse out of playing cards, because she loves the joker. I'm also making her a cute pair of kitty shoes 'cause she's a crazy cat lady.
P.S I'm a Buddhist to Buddha buddy, but I celebrate christmas

These are such great ideas, in fact it inspired me to have an entire DIY Christmas! Anyone with me??? I love the terrarium idea but for some reason I manage to kill every terrarium I've ever had. I am a great gardener though I promise!
ANYWHO I drew this for a friend and I plan on framing it for his Christmas gift

The terrarium and fire starters sounds like a good idea, though perhaps I can only put those in my boyfriend's parents' house. my apartment is way too small and doesn't have a fireplace, only a heater. Since I really love my new hat from Suzanne (kiddo) and so does my friends and my boyfriend's little sister - I think I'm also gonna make some hats for gifts. instead of socks they can also be filled with candies, and of course much more useful than oversized socks Happy

A DIY Christmas... Love the idea. I'm in for as much as I have time to do and will commit to a full DIY Christmas next year!

Pink Weeds: I want to see those aprons. I LOVE aprons and have two I'm working on. Please share!

I am also going to make photo ornaments for my mom for Christmas. just insert a small photograph into a clear ball ornament and add whatever filler you want!

I'm going to probably make a loom-knit hats for a few people, as well as some soaps and stationery kits... possibly vodka infusions if I have time/money.

I have a friend who's moving back to Hawaii at the end of the semester so I will probably make him a big stationery kit so he can write to people back in South Dakota.
