    Pillsbury has some really cute, easy ways to jazz up their ready-to-bake cookie dough. (No, I don't work for them!)

    Rice Krispy treats are also super easy to make and hard to mess up. Dazzle them up with some green and red sugar crystals (sprinkle over warm treats while cooling). Wrap them in colored Saran wrap. Tie with ribbon.

    For your parents, maybe make a committment to do one more thing for yourself this year?

    You can make a certificate:

    From now on, Mom and Dad, I'll be making my own lunch, or doing my own laundry, or helping with dinner once a week?

    Or, you could buy them a movie you think they'll like--maybe one you've heard them talk about from their childhood--and agree to watch it with them at a "Family Movie Night." Same thing with a board game like Cranium.

    buy some tins at the dollar store and bake cookies. my little sister's friends loved them. or you could make bath salts and stuff. look it up online, there are dozens of different things you can do. My favorite is this: I bought some small lightbulbs for decorative lamps, and some acrylic paint. Just paint the light bulbs with bright colors and christmassy patterns (santa, snowflake, etc.) Then take some embroidery floss or other sturdy string and hotglue it in place near the bulb, on the stem. then wrap it around the stem all the way to the bottom of the bulb and glue it in a loop. make sure the top of your pattern is at the bottom of the bulb. Have fun!
