How about Christmas Crackers? They are a British tradition, but you can buy supplies to make your own. You can fill them with whatever you like - small trinkets. You pull them apart with (they have a "popper" inside"). Traditionally they have a small trinket, a paper crown, and a fortune on a piece of paper, but you can put whatever you want in them.

Old English Crackers

Or you could make Jiffy Pops. You just print out a seasonal graphic on cardstock and slip it inside the Jiffy Pop pan, over the top of the original cover. You can tie a pretty ribbon on the handle. Target has Jiffy Pop for $1/pan.

This website has some free graphics for the Jiffy Pop's and other printable craft things.

How about a set of wine charms in yor club colors with an "L" charm or each lady's initial hanging down. You may be able to find the charms inexpensively. Or you could use a Christmas theme.

I have a ladies Christmas party each year and make small favors for each friend.

One year I painted starfish like Santas as ornaments (picture available if you're interested).

Another year I made lavendar/flaxseed eye pillows.

Another I took plain gold and clear glass ball ornaments, drew glue initials, swirls and curliques and poured on irridescent glitter for an all over design--topped with a matching bow through the loop.

You can also consider painting wooden spoons as Santas or snowmen, filling clear balls with popcorn or metallic glitter and curling ribbon, using Christmas fabric to make sachets or consider something edible--double stuffed oreos dipped in chocolate and wrap 2 in gold paper with a pretty bow and tag.

Set aside time to do them "assembly line" style and it gets done quickly.

Wow! These are some great ideas. I'm not hosting an event, but some of these would be nice for small gifts for neighbors too. Now why am I drooling? Oh, it's that double stuffed oreo in chocolate idea! LOL

Here is how I print out my Jiffy Pop covers. I make the tag on the same sheet.

All the graphic are free ones.

I printed on a tan cardstock and used some pretty Christmas ribbon to tie on the handle.

Here is a link to PC Crafts to see what they look like, although mine did look different because of the ribbon I used. But you can get the idea...

The little wire and bead angels from Carol Duval are easy and make up quickly. I used crystal and gold wire a few years ago. Everyone got one as pkg. decoration.

What is the "Lioness" group about ? maybe you could make something related to the group

WOW, what great ideas...I'm going to have a hard time deciding...
The Lioness group is the lady's version of the men's Lion's...We work to raise money for the sight impaired. Just a couple of our projects are, sponsoring a couple kids to go to one of our local sight impaired camps and having fund raisers for the care and training of the leader dogs...It's a very worthwhile group, very satisfying.....
Thanks again for all the ideas...

Registered today. Hi to all crafters! I am a diabetic and need ideas of how to use my small canisters my strips come in. Any ideas will be welcomed. Nice to read that others recycle items too. My family calls it junk but it's really treasure to a crafter's eyes.

I'm going to be making some beaded bookmarks - that might be a good favor idea.
There are directions here to make a book thong:

Last year I made different spice mixes (not expensive if you get the spices from Big Lots or Dollar General) & you could put the mix in baby food jars with a pretty label & ribbon, or the little jelly jars you can get at most grocery stores. You can find a lot of recipes for the mixes on-line.
