Right now is the perfect time to get good gifts for cheap. Seems like every store has really nice baskets of toiletries for a reasonable price. I personally think that scented candles are always good, with nice candle plates or holders. Hope that helps.

If you have time - why not something home-baked? A plate of cookies or a homemade carrot or zuccini or banana bread would be wonderful! Making 5 breads might seem like a lot, but you can make one or two at a time and freeze them until the shower date. It's heartfelt and inexpensive.

After Christmas there will be really good prices on Christmas gifts and seasonal items. You could also make something. I just finished making bath salts for my mom and mother-in-law for Christmas. Just buy epson salt (first aid section in the store). Divide it up into different bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring to lightly color the salt (a couple drops goes a long way). Stir well and make sure to get rid of clumps by stirring well. Then put the colored salt into a nice jar. You can bend a paper plate to help funnel the salt into the jar. If you have more than one color then you can make creative layers with the color. Then add a couple of drops or sprays of perfume. The salt will soak up the perfume and smell nice in the bath. Then tie a ribbon around the jar if you want. And voila! Homemade bath salts! Very inexpensive to make! And it has a nice homemade touch. Epson salt is $2 at Walmart and makes 2 nice size jars of bath salt. I got my jars at the $ store. Food coloring is about $2. Ribbon was 44 cents at Walmart (I use 2 colors of ribbon). So that was just $7 for 2 gifts! So about $3.50 a peice! Not bad! And they turned out very nice. I'm going to make these for my baby shower hostess gift in late January. Good luck! Have fun!
