Some More Gift Ideas

One of my favourite things about Christmas is the giving and receiving of handmade goodies.  I like to think that the time I have taken to make something for someone is appreciated and I in turn am always thrilled and grateful to receive something handmade.

Have you been following along with Kerryanne's Simply Christmas?  Putting the handmade back into christmas.  If you have then you would have seen these gorgeous little christmas puddings made from Tim Tams and Cream Cheese covered in milk and white chocolate and topped off with a cherry.  I made a whole tray full tonight.

 Tomorrow is my last day at work before christmas so tonight I put together some gifts for my fellow workers.  I bought some gorgeous little christmas coasters and wrapped it up with 2 little puddings.

Wrapped a ribbon around it's middle and tied off with a bow.

They look so cute.

And for the girls in the office I put together a home fragrance pack which consists of a little paper bag full of tea light candles, a ceramic tart burner and 6 scented soy wax tarts hand poured and scented by me.

I tied them up with a bell, some ribbon and a wooden ornament.

 And now I am all ready for gift giving tomorrow.  I have just 2 gifts left to finish and a mountain of pavlova making to do.  I wonder if I will finish in time?

How are you going?  Are you getting any closer to being able to relax?
