What are some unique, inexpensive christmas gifts, I could give to family and friends this year?

I have a tight budget, but would still love to give my family, boyfriend, and a few of my friends a nice christmas gift. I would love to make or do something for them they would appreciate, but I want it to be unique. I’ve heard all the "Give them tokens" etc before, and although it is a lovely idea, its not ideal for my close ones. Any ideas appreciated!

    Well, it’s not unique if someone else tells you about it, is it? Assuming a non-unique idea someone else has used is OK, how about making a big batch of Christmas biscuits and giving everyone some? Or you could make table decorations, if you have access to some basic greenery – candle in the middle supported by a bit of oasis in a coffee jar lid, stick sprays of greenery into the oasis to decorate. Orange pomanders – oranges, cloves and ribbon.

    well making bath bombs for your mum normally works, or homemade chocolates or cookies go down really well and are cheap.

    You could make homemade stuff, that’s always nice. I’m not sure if this is unique, but… I was at Kohl’s yesterday and saw necklaces with initials and other stuff on them. They were really pretty and about $8.00. I love getting stuff like that. Whatever you do, remember its the thought that counts 🙂

    How about a little hamper? Buy a little box or woven basket and buy lots of their favourite treats to put in… My personal philosophy is that everything tastes better in miniature! So look for mini versions of chocolates, home-made condiments, cheese and crackers, alcohol etc. Independent food stores and markets are good for these. It shows you’ve put a lot of thought in too, and it’s personal to the tastes of the recipient. PS. You can do a lot of padding out with shredded paper/bows etc. to make it look more expensive 😉 😉
