Cheap and/or crafty Christmas ideas 2015

So there are officially 5 months to Christmas and I've been searching the internet and these pages for ideas that won't break the bank for cheap and/or crafty Christmas presents and thought it would be a good idea to share ideas here for all those who may be interested.

So far I have seen scrabble magnets ie buying a cheap set of scrabble letters and gluing magnets to them.

I have also seen vinyl clocks, where a cheap vinyl can be purchased from a charity shop and the mechanism online for a few pounds.

My personal favourite has been the 12 dates of Christmas (a quick google will show various ways of doing this), which I'm definitely going to try.

So with that in mind, please feel free to share any gift based ideas on a budget, or links that could be relevant for those MSE'ers who are doing Xmas 2015 on a very tight budget like me!
