need ideas for cheap treats to make for family

Every year, everyone makes some sort of homemade treat to give out to everyone else. I want something cheap and easy, preferably something that can be made a few days in advance. I don't want to spend a whole lot of time baking.

my faves for both quick and easy as well as cheap are meringue cookies and homemade sponge toffee.

Pretzel kisses.... Were A favorite at our house. Take small square or round pretzel, top with unwrapped hersheys kiss, melt in oven for a few minutes, lightly press a m&m in the melted kiss. Let cool. Bag and ribbon. My 13 to usually makes these for her teachers.

I am planning to make this! Super cute, looks easy, and basically all the ingredients can be gotten for little $$ with sales and coupons.
