Try making some homemade fudge or candy and put in small gift containers picked up on sale last year after Christmas, or make your own containers. Take a container with a plastic snap-on lid such as a Pringles can, small dry powder mix can, etc., wipe it out with a clean damp paper towel, and then cover the outside with Christmas wrapping paper, leaving several inches at the top and bottom to tuck inside and tape down at the bottom. Fill with goodies, replace plastic lid, and put a bow on top. These containers are inexpensive and can be thrown away without guilt when empty.
