Secret Santa ideas 2023 🎅

I'm after some Christmas inspiration.

Please share any ideas you've had, crafts you've made or deals you've spotted that could make a great Secret Santa gift.

It shouldn't cost much (free up to £5 or so).

Thank you. 🎁

    Homemade shortbreads, chutneys, jams or sauces. Cuttings off of plants potted up with a nice ribbon around the pot.
    I have just made a stollen cake for a friend after making the marzipan.

    That sounds lovely. I didn’t like marzipan for years because always had a horrible bitter almond taste.  When I made my own it was a revelation  :)
