There is no category for gifts..so toys that I have bought as gifts for christmas bdays, etc, I just put under toys. I also dont know where to put gifts such as baked goods that I made for the parents, or plants, or gift cards. I have pretty much just kinda through all of this stuff under supplies, but dont know if this is acceptable or not. So, what the correct thing to do?

It says birthday cards go under office expenses but I don't know about gifts....maybe make a customized category? I use/made one and let my tax preparer deal with how to file it. If you do it all yourself then sorry I probably wasn't much help. Maybe Tom will clarify.

In general, it doesn't make any difference where you put your business expenses on Schedule C.

You are entitled to deduct gifts up to $25 per person, per year. More than that is not deductible. You could list this as a separate category under Other Expenses, line 27.
