Gift Ideas

Ok, I was cleaning out my hard drive and saw all these gift "pails" and baskets, kits, and things like this. I couldn't bear to throw them out. I never had the funds to put them together and sell them, so instead, I thought I'd share them w/ you. Some of them even have the cost with them, so you know how much to expect.

Today we'll start with "care packages."

Best Friends: (this is more for girls between 7-14 yrs old)
  • A card
  • Clothespin Dolls*- these can be done two ways. In a kit for the receiver to put together themselves, or already made. Find out how to make them here (although I'd look for the clothespins at the dollar store first, that's where I found mine). For cute packaging, try this
  • Friendship Bracelets* Learn how here
  • No Sew Fleece Pillow KIT (so she has something to do). Just include materials and instructions, found here
  • Photo Holder- there are lots of different kinds to make. One is here. You can also try this: Cut small styrofoam ball in half. Painted as desired. Cut 1-3 pieces of 24 guage wire into say 10" -12"pieces. Curl into spirals at one end. Stick into foam. Decorate as desired.
  • Headbands- Scarfbands or Take some ribbon, as wide as you like, measure it so it goes *almost* around the head (make sure it's a similar size for the person you're sending it to). Make sure the edges aren't going to unravel by either hemming, fray checking or burning the edges. On one end of the scarf, sew a button. On the other, loop a piece of thin elastic and sew it to that edge. Put it around head and make sure the loop fits around the button.
  • Jump Rope- not very expensive, but if you know how to knit, then try this one
  • CD Case Book- you could put pictures of you and the person you're sending it too, or write a story. They're adorable!
  • Things to just buy: stickers, lip gloss, the person's favorite candy, glitter pens, mini notebooks, cute erasers
Get Well Soon:
