Holiday Gifts

Hi there!

I thought I'd pop in quick and share these little gifts we are giving out this year.

First up, we are gifting these to our teachers and basketball coaches.  Timmy has 2 coaches and two teachers, and in both groups he has one male and one female.  We wanted to do something crafty, and also something gender neutral.  This is what we came up with.....
Travel mugs with crocheted cozies to keep the coffee hot.  I even added a pocket for us to tuck in a gift card to Tim Horton's.  And if you are like me and only like one brand of sweetener, you can cart your own around in the pocket.

It took no time at all to whip up 4 of these crocheted cozies, Canadian Tire had a great deal on the mugs, but you can find them anywhere (even the grocery store) and grabbing the gift cards is super easy since the hubby is there almost daily!

I am working on 2 more crochet projects, and will share when they are done - hopefully they will be before the holidays!

Next up, banana bread.....

... for some sweet friends and neighbours.

And also, these cute little fuzzy sock gift sets......
 .... the adorable digis are from Whimsie Doodles and can be found here.

And lastly, a few gift cards.  This were whipped up last minute (hubby sort of sprang on me that he forgot to get the gifts for his co-workers)  he went out to grab the gift cards and I whipped these up.

 Here is a peek at the inside....
 You can find the tutorial for these here, this girl is seriously talented so you may want to poke around her blog.

Thanks for visiting!
