Clocks and Hats
I also made clocks for 14 of my nearest and dearest. It was inexpensive, but took a lot of work and solving some tricky technical difficulties. By Christmas day I managed to pull together a random menagerie of ticking and tocking for the taking.
Although I love making Christmas presents, I always hesitate as I hand out my homemade gifts. I think they give the recipient a message of love and caring, "Here, I took time and effort to make this especially for you." Warm fuzzy et cetera. My hesitation comes when I imagine them thinking, "Great, thanks, what I am I supposed to do with this? I can't throw it away because she made it. Junk." At least a clock is functional and hats keep heads warm, I think I got by this year.
