Top Ten Tuesday - Homemade Gift Ideas!

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is all about homemade gift ideas!  With the economy in the state that it is, and the raising costs of everything, homemade gifts are definitely the way to go.  Here are my top ten!
  1. Glittery Gingerbread Play-doh.  Do you know a child alive who wouldn't love that?  I know I don't!
 2.  Homemade Sugar Scrub, so easy and so wonderfully exfoliating!  And for the more advanced, there are a variety of scents and textures you can try here.
3.  Homemade calendars are a very useful gift, as well as memorable.  If you have kids, this would be a great gifts for grandparents and even aunts and uncles.  If you don't have kids, any family member would be happy to receive a calender full of family photos or you could make a themed calender, i.e. cats, cars, food, lighthouses, and the lists goes on and on...
4. Cup-cakes.  This would make a great teacher or Sunday School helper gift, and super easy too!
5.  No-Sew Sachets.  These can be easily customized by color and scent to accommodate many recipients.
6.  Cup Cuffs are a great way to re-purpose old sweaters into some new and useful.  Very clever!
7.  Chocolate Cookie Bark is definitely going to be at the top of my 'goodie-to-make list' next year!  Easy and looks so delicious!
8.  How about some bath salts to go with that sugar scrub?  Sounds like the beginnings of a spa basket for each of the ladies in you life!
9.  This snowman button is adorable!  I know several ladies at our church who would love to receive on of these for Christmas!
10.  This greeting card bowl would make an even better present filled with delicious homemade goodies!
