We have a blended family. I celebrate Christmas and my husband celebrates Hanukkah. Makes it kind of great for the kids :o) Every year my in-laws host a Holiday party and all the cousins (or most of them) come. We only give presents to the kids and then we have a gift exchange for the adults. It's one of those games where all the gifts are piled up in the middle of the room and each person who brings a gift gets a number. Then we start opening the presents in number order - the person with number 1 opens a gift first, then #2 and so on. When your turn comes up, you can either choose an unopened gift or "steal" one from someone else who has already opened up a gift. Choosing a gift for this exchange has been kind of a stressor for my husband and I. Some of his cousins truly have everything. This year I decided to make our gift - it will be interesting to see how it is received.
We chose Hanukkah coasters because the majority of the people at this party celebrate Hanukkah. The total cost (I am planning on making 8) is approximately $12.
One finished coaster. These are very easy and so much fun!!

In the end there will be two of each design.

5 more coasters to go!
This is a free pattern over at The Purl Bee
