ideas of gifts to make for christmas

I have to admit, I am not much of a procrastinator. I think my husband feels left out every year at Christmas because I have most of the shopping done by November. This year, I will save time for him, but I have to admit - I know what I'm making for pretty much everyone. I've even got it all cut out and in bags so that it's ready to sew whenever I'm ready to sew. . .

Here's a few ideas in case you're thinking about Christmas in October.

Beanbags: I'm thinking of making these for Carson. He likes throwing things so I might as well make him something that won't break.

Ponytail holders: great for little friends.

A list of 54 Free apron patterns.

If you're not going to make your grandma fabric grocery bags, maybe you could help her tame all of her plastic bags with a nifty grocery bag dispenser.

A belt for your stylish sister or friend.

Dish towels - always a great idea. Plus, cute and easy.

more to come. . .

Nice ideas!!! I am not a procrastinator BUT I have learned that I love the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. I know it is weird, but when I start early I go over budget because I just love to be out there during December with everyone else. So I purposely wait until mid November to begin.

I am exactly the same as you Jen, I absolutely love the atmosphere of shopping at Christmas time.

However my sister is completely different and would rather sit at home and do the shopping over the Internet at places like need a present and various other online stores.

I suppose its just personal preference at the end of the day and I can see why she would rather stay in the comfort of a warm house...but its not nearly as much fun!
