I made the sleighs made out of candy canes and mini candy and they were big hits with everyone I gave them too. Easy to make and lots of fun. These little sleighs are just something to give and don't cost a lot of money.

What adorable gift ideas. There's something in here for everybody. You've made it so easy--all we have to do is pick one or two and there you go. The teacup is perfect for grandma. I loved that idea especially because it's hard to know what to get someone who has practically everything they need. You've written a delightful & useful hub. Yay!
