I'm the type of person who mulls over what to make family (and friends) for Christmas. I think about this for MONTHS before I actually decide on what to do. I do like to make useful items rather than decorative things that will only be used once a year, however; this year I came upon an idea that could be both useful and decorative--hanging dish towels with matching pot holders! Now we all know that you can NEVER have too many kitchen towels or pot holders, so I think these will be wonderful gifts! And I can make them in either Christmas, kitchen, or novelty fabrics.
