Homemade holiday gift ideas

Christmas is only two days away, are you prepared?
Rather than focusing on one individual today, I thought it would be refreshing to share the latest Christmas gift finds with all of you young achievers, in case you are scrambling to prepare gifts for your parents or friends. Below are cheap, yet thoughtful crafts you can construct in no time that will please most anyone. Happy holidays everyone!

Holiday craft ideas:

Hot cocoa in decorated mug - Tie a red ribbon around a basic mug and place a bag of homemade cocoa inside. It's all about the presentation, really. If you don't have time to make your own cocoa, just use a store bought hot chocolate mix. If you do have a few spare minutes, the recipe is below!
Ingredients: Mix together, 2 cups nonfat dry milk powder, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa, 1/2 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup powdered nondairy creamer, 1/8 teaspoon salt. This will make about four cups of mix.

Mixed Cd's - Create a play list of your recipient's favorite music, then personalize the CD case with song lyrics, photos or stickers.

Photo frame - Decorating a photo frame is quick and cheap, yet captures a memory that is priceless. Take a few things from around the house (with a parent's permission) like buttons, broaches or beads and use a strong craft glue to adhere the items to your favorite frame. Parents and friends will love to see that you took time to create a meaningful gift they can display forever.

Sticky notes - Who doesn't enjoy stationary or sticky notes? This craft is extremely easy and has a very practical use. Take your favorite ink stamps ( or markers) and print shapes on the sides of sticky note cubes. When they memo cubes are dry, tie them up with a holiday bow and place them under the tree. Any hardworking parent or studious friend will be thrilled to receive this craft!
