12 days of Christmas

I got a cool gift from my sister for Christmas. She made 12 bags (see here) that are about six and a half inches by seven and a half inches when closed. Then she put numbers on them and put little presents in them. One was for each of the 12 days of Christmas. (The twelve days of Christmas begin on December 25).
Day1-homemade Chex mix
Day2-an ornament
Day3-post it notes
Day 4-a box of Reese's Pieces candy
Day 5-a pumpkin pie spice candle in a jar
Day 6-2 spools of thread
Day 7-2 pairs of blue socks
Day 8-a homemade needle case
Day 9-Chapstick
Day 10-a box of Reese's Pieces candy
Day 11-6 handmade cards
Day 12-some fabric for quilting

My sister Anita also got twelve bags and I will have to compare with her a bit more to see what she got-some of our gifts were the same, but she got tea bags in one of hers and that never showed up in mine (thankfully). I thought that maybe the Helen Reddy tape would show up in one of the bags. If someone was making bags for you, what are a few things that could be put in them?

Hello! I wandered over here from Amanda's blog and I just have to say what a great idea your sister had. I'll have to remember that for next year!

Pillow mints, yarn and tea were different for me.
