Just a side note but any crafts that you make can also be sold for a decent price online or locally. I bake a family recipe that no one else in my family does and sell it $15 a pop and it only costs me $6 to make. So far I've made $75 or so making them and given a few away as gifts already for thanksgiving.

I sew blankets and bags that I sell and give away as gifts. Cost anywhere from $10-$30 to make a blanket or bag and I double the cost to get a price.
Home/handmade is what people like to hear when they buy stuff around Christmas so make sure to throw that around a bit if you do sell.
