Christmas suggestions

Hi Guys. Its Christmas gift making time again. This is my first year turning and loving it. Looking for fairly simple things to make for kids and adults. Anyone like to show off what they have made? I have a good supply of oak, pearwood, blackwalnut, and almond wood.

I would have to dig through my files and downsize the photos. I make hand mirrors, they make great gifts. I also make a lot of Christmas ornaments, small lidded boxes and wine stoppers. Of course bowls make great gifts.

Rolling pins make good gifts for bakers. Also as john said bowls make good gifts as well.

There is always the ever favorite pen too. Makes a nice gift. Don't forget some tops as stocking stuffers for the little tikes.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. The hand mirror idea was a new one to me, would really like to see some examples of those. Thats what great about this site. Threads are great sources for ideas without even asking. Did a coopered cookie jar recently, that could easily be converted to a bird house.
