For Her – Sugar Scrub

For Him – Snack Six-Pack
With the festive season in full flow there’s guaranteed to be some left-over beer bottles hanging around. Why not grab six (make sure you clean them out good and proper!) and fill them up with his favourite savoury and sweet snacks? Add some personalised labels and pop them in a carrier for that extra fun touch.
For Your Little One – Mini Foosball
If your little one loves to play Table Football but a full-sized one doesn’t quite fit in their room then a homemade mini foosball table is the perfect gift! Grab a shoebox, pegs and wooden dowels and you’re almost there. Finish off with a couple of ping-pong balls and ta-da! Click here for the full tutorial.
For The Dog – Shirt Blanket
It’s time to get out the old SINGER sewing machine and make your dog a blanket. Using old clothes from all the family, cut the fabric into squares, sew together and then proceed to sew it onto a fleece blanket. Your dog will love that it is both snuggly AND smells like his favourite people!
For Your Secret Santa – Chalkboard Mug
