More christmas ideas

After I wrote my post on homemade Christmas ideas I keep finding more wonderful Christmas ideas so I thought I just had to do a part two (well more like part 3 as I also did a post on kiddies gifts)! These are some new and wonderful ideas I’ve find and no doubt I’ll keep adding links to the bottom as well as I find them. So many wonderful clever creative people out there – thank you for putting your ideas out there for us all.

Oh my’s sidewalk chalk is just fantastic for the kiddies. I am totally going to make some for John. I love that you can make them big and chunky as the store bought ones just seem to break these chunky ones might last longer.

Some more great jar ideas; I love pressies in a jar. I really like Creative rambling’s sewing kit in a jar and also Crazy for Collars’ cute little pin cushion jar. I think I would add a magnet in the jar as this is great for when you knock your pins onto the ground – so easy to pick up. This gardener’s hand scrub and hot cocoa in a jar look wonderful too.

I love buatkalunggelang’s button necklace and also Martha Stewart’s layered button necklace. Great for the girl who likes necklaces as you never can have enough necklaces!

 I’m obsessed with owls at the moment and think these two doorstops are super cute. Honest fabrication’s owl pattern is free and Betz White’s owl pattern costs $10 but is worth it as both so super cute.

As John is getting a bit older now he loves playing with play dough and drawing but this can leave a mess on his clothes so this art smock by Don’t look now would be a perfect gift for any little artist. 
christmas_nz_ecochickI love Healthy Alternatives’ preserved lemons. What a great and pretty way to save lemons and would look so lovely on top off my kitchen cupboard. The Green goddess has amazing recipes for chilli jam, herbed salt and green peppercorn mustard.

Some more wonderful bath scrubs: HollyBeth’s Natural Luxury home scrub looks good enough to eat and Susie Norris’ chocolate body scrub is edible!

I have loads of coaster in my home as they can add colour and change the look for a room (not to mention protect my wooden tables). Beneath my hearts‘ and A mom not a professional nor a perfectionist’s tile coasters are wonderful. Sew Pretty’s cloth coasters look great too. 
  
Have fun and Merry Christmas!

    the option which won’t dent your purse seriously Paydayloansonlinedurp.co.uk but, its doesn’t signify those with no
    credit standing cannot obtain a car.
