I am still under the illusion that I can make all my Christmas presents this year. However, I just checked my list and realized that I have several people for whom I have nothing...no ideas...no hope.
A little help?
Edited to add: all the in-law gifts are being carried to England.
Brother-in-law: geologist, does something with gas (works for the people who work for the people who drill?) He's an outdoorsy guy, hikes. Kind of an environmentalist-seeming person. Thirty seven, two kids.
Little boy, age 5
Little boy, age 2.5 I would love to tell you what these two little guys were into but the last time I wrote to my SIL and asked what was on their Christmas list, I got no response. The dude, covering for his sister no doubt, claims the English don't make Christmas lists. What are you doing to those poor children over there? I am coming*, and I am bringing Child Social Services. ;)
FIL's Girlfriend: what can I tell you? When she was here last, she loved the cornbread I made from the Jiffy mix, so I keep sending her that. And now you know I've spent $1 on her the last two years running. She recently had a stroke. She was a scientist. I only give her something because my FIL expects it. And now I'm going to hell. Again.
Uncle: The fisherman. He's the guy I made this and this for. Two years ago, I stitched him the fishing santa (he has lobsters in his pack) from PS over one. He thought I bought it. He is totally a guys' guy but he loves the stuff I make for him. So I'd like to make him something good. Edited to add: My aunt once described my uncle as "6'4" both ways;" he's what you call a big man.
Any ideas are good ones. Extra credit if I can whip it up as easily as the acorns. (And for your love of them, thanks!)
