      Something we always give to coworkers and friends is baskets and tins

      full of homemade cookies and candies. For those with special dietary

      restrictions, we alter accordingly.

      In years past, we’ve included:

      Snowballs (aka Russian tea cakes, Mexican wedding cakes), Candy Cane

      cookies, Polvorones (anise-flavored, cinnamon-sugar covered little

      cookies that melt in your mouth), shortbread, chocolate

      dipped “oreos” with sprinkles or nuts, rum-balls, and chocolate

      covered cherries.

      Other idea are simple cross-stitch ornaments (may I suggest the

      for starters, homemade jar candles (you can find all the ingredients

      you need at your local craft store), homemade soaps or lotions, or

      simple quilts.

      Wal-Mart and JoAnn Fabrics both have pre-done quilt-look material.

      All you need to do is find batting (a hint: old blankets from the

      goodwill work WONDERFULLY for this!) and a sheet or appropriate

      material for the back, stitch it together on the sides and do a

      little hand embroidery to keep the layers together.

      Good luck!
