I thoroughly enjoy giving gifts, big or small. I love taking time to wrap them up special. It’s one of my greatest pleasures, as evidenced by my The Gift Is In The Wrap Pinterest board.
This past weekend I got together with my 5 girlie bffs from high school. It’s been many years since we graduated but every time we see each other we have bunches of laughs and I love every minute of it. I wanted to give them each something little just to let them know I value their friendship. Gifts don’t have to be expensive to send the right message.
I picked up 5 paper journals with different bright cheery covers and 5 pens, each one matching a journal, at Michaels.
Then I grabbed some paint chips and scrapbook paper from my stash, and added bakers twine and stickers to make a bookmark for each set. I personalized each one with the initial of their first name. This is an sample of the two sides.
I tied each one up with some bright ribbon.
And there you have it. Simple, inexpensive, personal, thoughtful. Do you give little gifts like this? I also made some birthday gifts for 3 of my friends, which I’ll share soon.
