I got so many compliments on this gift. Everybody we gave them to had to tell me how much they liked it and which recipe they used. On recipient went so far as to mail my son a gift as a thank you. This is like a gift in a jar but with options. Because I gave them the recipe for the mix as well as recipes for what to do with the mix it is a gift that keeps on giving. Then there is the reusable snack bag it is packaged in plus laminated recipe cards backed with some nice sayings. Go HERE to see the full post.
Erika shared a brilliant way to up the Wow factor of gifting glass bake ware. Never loose your bake ware at a pot luck again. Learn how she etched the last name of the recipient on this glass bake ware. Oh the possibilities are endless with what you can etch. Etch some custom stem where with a monogram or symbol. Make a candy dish like Rebecca did HERE. Go see Erika’s how-to post HERE.
If you live where it is hot and dry, then you know someone that could use a neck cooler. These are filled with water jelly crystals that plump up when you soak them in water. The cool moist crystals act much like an evaporative cooler to make the wearer feel cool and comfortable. You can see the tutorial HERE.
Pillowcases for any occasion! With all the fun fabrics available seasonally you, your child, your parents, a special Grandmother, a Neighbor, a Teacher, a friend, a friends child could have a fantastic pillowcase to decorate their bed with. I have to tell you that even boys will get excited for a fun new pillowcase. They aren’t all that hard to make and don’t have to use a ton of fabric. Rebecca and Anjeanette came together to give you a whole post about making pillowcases. At the start of the School year I showed how to make a MINI TRAVEL PILLOW SHAM. You really should check out Anjeanette and Rebecca’s PILLOW CASE TUTORIAL.
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream……cozies. ;) Make an ice cream cozy to go along with a gift card for some ice cream. This is the perfect thing for a get well gift, a thank you, I’m sorry, your BFF when she is having a bad week, Christmas, Birthday, Mother’s day or any other occasion you can think of. Just think about all those lovely fabrics that you don’t need a ton of to make a very personalized gift. Seriously ladies you could make these using your scrap fabrics. Even if you don’t have a single piece big enough, you could sew strips together to make a patchwork piece. What a great way to recycle fabric scraps and add to your gift stash at the same time! See how Anjeanette made THIS ICE CREAM COZY.
We will see you all when we come back on Tuesday. Thanks for understanding our need for a little time out. We hope we have given you some gift ideas to think about for the upcoming holiday season. We are so excited to have so many new friends!
