    holiday gift ideas..help me out please!

    This year, I'm poorer than poor, but that doesn't prevent me from having a list of people 10 miles long that I have to get things for...

    My list covers mostly guys (but a few girls as well) from ages 16-22, so I'm needing some generic type gifts. If it helps, most of them are into the punker/rocker/emo stuff, and of course...cars. I've already made some cuffs, but I'd like something more than that...

    I know a lot of techies, so something technology related would be great. I've got some computer hardware pieces that I ripped off of my old computer - cables, wires, chips and boards, etc. Any ideas as to what I could do with them?

    Along with this, there are a handfull of pagan types who I'd love to make gift baskets for. I tried my hand at candle making and so far they're coming out alright...any ideas as to what else I can put in?

    Thanks in advance!

    X-mas crafts

    I'm making chopstick cases for some of my friends that go out for Asian food a lot. I don't have a pattern or anything though, I'm just kind of winging it. I'm going for a wrap, like used for knitting needles or paint brushes.
    Materials-
    -A piece of pretty 10"x5" fabric."
    -A piece of 14"x5" fabric for the inside lining .(I'm using plain linen.)
    -Some ribbon for the tie.
    -Chop sticks. (I got a bag of 20 pair in the Asian section of the local grocery store for about a buck.)

    Fold lining to 10"x5", and sew to create a pocket. (I'm also going to sew a seam about 1" in to keep the chopsticks in place. Pin them together(inside out) with the ribbon/tie in the middle and sew the edges leaving a small opening. Turn it right side out, and top stitch.
    Pretty quick & easy, with a total cost of less than $5. (Also a great use for scraps of fabric that you are looking to use, or you can get fabric remnants.)

    You can buy a set of silk paints, silk scarves and ties and you can paint them by yourself.
    There are some demonstrations hwo to do it on youtube.

    I think best holiday gift is favorite food . Because a delicious food can change mood of any person and make the time good.
