Another gift idea

So, are you almost ready for Christmas? I "think" I am done making/buying gifts, I just have to finish some wrapping.




I bought a few boxes of the lotions you see below, they're small (stocking stuffer size), but they smell oh so YUMMY! I buy these at my hairdressers salon.




I decided to split up the package into several gifts. Two of the bottles fit perfectly into a medium PTI glassine bag.




I added a doily onto each bag to pretty it up :) The package below is for my Mom, I tied her Barnes and Noble gift card onto the front, along with some white stems I bought at Michaels. The gift card holder is one that I made last Christmas but didn't use.




These little packages were fun to individualize, I think each one has it's own personality. Below is a 3x3 gift card I also made last year and had left over.




And one last package, the tag below was also left over from last Christmas. It's been so great to have these things handy to put together quick, last minute gift packaging! Lesson learned, I need to make a bunch of tags for all occasions to have at the ready at all times ;)




So that's all for today. One last quickie post tomorrow featuring a super easy last minute gift idea, and then I'll be taking a few days off for Christmas. See you tomorrow :)

  7. Hi, Diane! I have been enjoying all your recent posts of Christmas gifts and goodies. Loved all the pretty and festive designs and all the wonderful tags. Your gingerbread house is adorable. We (both my hubby & I together) sold Pampered Chef as an extra part time job. This was quite a few years back when experiencing some financial troubles. Our group had a booth at the Home Show and we made and decorated gingerbread houses for different holidays (Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's, etc.). It really was a lot easier than I first thought and lots of fun. I agree it that it would be a great family activity.

    I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year! HUGS!
