    Soda siphons are very much back in vogue.

    Look out for different colours like these French ones from Eco Chic £53

    I know it's a bit soon but once November hits then December is upon us so I thought I would start looking through loads and loads of sites for hand made gift ideas.

    My first post on this is for this lovely jar of M&M's, but its the poem that I thought was just perfect...

    As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them
    You will see the M becomes a W and E and A 3
    They tell the Christmas story; its one I'm sure you'll know
    It took place in a stable a long, long time ago
    The E is for east where the star shone so bright
    The M is for manger where baby Jesus slept that night
    The 3 is for wise men bearing gifts, with haste they came
    W is for worship, angels sang praise to his name
    So as you eat these candies or share them with a friend
    Remember the true spirit of Christmas and never let it end.

    It's taken from a lovely blog 'I heart nighttime'...101+ inexpensive handmade gifts.
