Call me crazy, but I would rather spend time at home making a gift then spending time in a packed mall.
One of my favorite gifts that I made was for my sister-in-law. She loves to host parties at her house, so I put together a Gold Themed: Party-in-a-Box gift package!
What you'll need:
1. Thank you cards or Invites
2. Drink Stirrers
4. Cupcake mix and cupcake liners
6. Gift for the hostess
How I did it:
For the invites/thank yous - I bought blank white cards and made a heart shape with glue and sprinkled glitter.
For the drink stirrers - I bought skewers and wrapped feathers to them.
For the candles - I bought glass jar candles and used spray adhesive and glitter to make them pretty.
Paper banner/garland - I took my heart puncher and sewing machine to make a banner for the party. It's quite easy if you have a sewing machine.
I bundled it all together with labels and fun wrapping. It's simply, but takes some time to put it all together!
Hope this helps give you some last minute ideas.
