Teacher gifts done and dusted

I finally finished Will's teacher gifts last night. Here they are ready to go. I made personalised Christmas tags with his Santa photo on them.

This is what is in each bag...
 The Reindeer Noses I blogged about last week.
Two gingerbread Christmas tree cookies...

This one is my adaptation of the cute reindeer cake pops you might have seen on the web. My version is not as good but was easier. I stuck two marshmallows on cake pop sticks and then dipped them in chocolate. I stuck googly eyes, a red rhinestone nose and the pipe cleaner antlers.

And these are little mini puddings covered in chocolate. They look best with white chocolate on top to look like the cream on top of the pudding but I just couldn't be bothered to be honest :)

So I think that is all my Christmas shopping/gift making done! YAY!

I love making handmade gifts but these were the only handmade gifts I made this year unfort, it's just been so busy with My Sweet Prints and Christmas parties etc.

Have you finished your Christmas shopping? 

I will be shutting up shop this afternoon as I'm having a break over Christmas and New Year, back on the 9th January 2012. 
It will be so nice to have a little break from work, although I know I'll miss talking to my lovely customers and stockists as well.

Are you getting a break over Christmas too or working through?

Have a great day,


  1. You are such a good mama! Love the idea of the reindeer noses.

    Hope you have an awesome Chrissie break!

  2. Extremely impressive!!
    Have a wonderful break. x

  3. Too cute! I went the lazy route and gave my son's two daycare teachers two movie tickets & chocolates each!

    Have a fab Christmas and enjoy the break!

  4. What beautiful gifts, you're a domestic goddess! I did lots of handmade gifts the last couple of years but I haven't done that this year, yet. I guess there's still time. I'm sure Will's teachers really appreciated them! Have a lovely Christmas..Rachaelxx

  5. Oh you are good... with all that lovely handmade stuff! Have a wonderful break from your busy business. Happy Christmas! A-M xx

  6. You make me feel so inadequate! Here I was thinking what a winner I was on with L'Occitane gifts for H's teachers!
