I bought my girlfriend clothes and wrapped them up nicely, placed them in a box with photos of us that I printed out (at the bottom). Put the card on top, sealed and tied a bow. She loved it!

I made my sister Toni a triple layer homemade coffee table with inlaid artworks and glass top coverings. Masterpiece!

A little Christmas gag never killed nobody:

When I was ten years old, My parents gave me this massive gift, I was so excited to tear off the wrapping paper. But once I did... I found it was a plastic folding table. The disappointment was palpable, until they told me to flip it over, and I found my brand new shiny iPod taped underneath! Definitely my most memorable present.

Gifted my sister a night robe with her husband's face on it!

Santamental and doesn’t break the bank:

This year I’m giving homemade vanilla extracts to family and friends. You keep the beans in them and just top up with vodka-the gift that keeps giving!

  • Cass, Geotechnical Admin

I made my then boyfriend a ‘photo a day’ book with photos of us throughout our relationship. It cost me probably $12.

My mum writes a lot of blog posts so I printed all of them and turned them into a book for her.
