This year was I tried harder to make a more of a handmade Christmas because with me being out of work our budget is tight but I love giving gifts.
The sewn gifts included a sock monkey for my mother-in-law, the teddy and a cloth book for my niece, an apron for my brother-in-laws girlfriend and a blanket for my aunty.
The other gifts made up hampers for most of the rest of the family. I had such great fun making onion marmalade, chilli jam, orange marmalade and lemon curd. Not pictured is the fudge and truffles we also made. The best fun I had was making the flavoured vodkas, they are so easy to make but look very impressive! My favourite was the coffee vodka!
Everything was well received and I am already thinking about what to do for next Christmas!
Hope everyone has a great New Year!
