So, let me just start out by saying I am a master procrastonater.. And with Christmas only being 3 days away, I still have to make gifts for the Parents..
They will "Love" any gifts I give them, but gifts that they "Love" less, than gifts that they LOVE, usually get put away in a droor, only to be thrown away in a few months, when my mom goes on an "Organizing Spree"

My Mother has an Iphone 4, and an Ipad. My dad is getting her an Ipad 2 for christmas though, so I could do something like that. She is a music teacher, and an "Office Assistaint" at a local Arts and Cultural center

My dad, is a very devoted guitar player, he builds FX petals, and he is really into those "Make Magazine" Projects

I looked today for hours on Cutoutandkeep.net but I always seemed to get sidetracked by things that I Liked, rather than things for them.. Please give me Ideas.. ALSO! I would need something that would possibly be with materials that were "around the house" That would be GREAT!

I suppose it is too late now, but I suggest you offer them home made confectionery (like fudge, chocolate truffles, caramels...) or biscuits (gingerbread, florentines...), or a nice cake that you would bake and decorate yourself. At least, your present will get eaten!! That's a lot better than being put in a drawer then given away santa

Though off course it's now too late, I wanted to add another idea Smile (though Escargot's ideas sound lovely and very yummy indeed)
I made rice-bags/heat-bags for some friends. There really great during the cold winter months and are really easy to make.

I used this tutorial but added some adjustments Smile
It's great to warm them on the stove/heater for a few moments and then lay them around your neck, ankles or where-ever you want Smile
