Ok, so I was going to do mostly homemade gifts this year for Christmas and then I had an idea. I need you girls to be completely honest with me and let me know if it's lame or not though, so please don't sugar coat it if you hate it or just not comment!
I'm thinking of making a "From Our Family to Yours" cookbook for my parents, S's parents, S's sister, and my grandparents (they love cooking). Basically, I'll collect family recipes or favorite recipes from everyone without them knowing why (I'll just say I'm making a list of favorites to make for S when he gets back or just that I want them for my collection) and then send them out for Christmas. The books are $20-$40/person, so I could do that plus one or two SMALL gifts for them also (like make it a gift basket type of deal with a handmade rub mix and BBQ sauce). I think it's a really cute idea, I would just need to collect the recipes.
So, what do you think? Lame? Cool? Better idea?
