HEY! i have quite a few gifts to get for my friends this year for christmas, and i don't know how many people are in the same boat... so i just thought i'd post what i'm doing.
i'm buying some cheap fugly looking mugs at the dollar store, then making cozies for them like this:
i found the idea on THIS
i'm either going to knit them or sew them out of fleece.
THEN I'M PUTTING SOME AWESOME CRAP INSIDE:
- christmas-y candy! peppermints, red & green m&m's, maybe some caramel cremes, too. because EVERYONE loves them!
- chapstick (i found burt's bee's for $1 each at five below!)
- a small notebook that i'm personalizing by drawing pictures, decoupaging from magazines, glitterizing, writing lyrics, inside jokes... ETC! amazon
has them for REALLY CHEAP: 3 for $1.75
- chocolate covered pretzels. ALL YA GOTTA DO is buy some big ol' container of pretzel rods, melt some chocolate in a double boiler. dip the pretzel and then roll it in some sprinkles or some kind of sugary goodness! then just wrap 'em up fancy and let people think you're some kind of cooking god.
AND THAT'S IT!
well almost. some of my friends are getting speical gifts like scarves... or PUZZLE BOOKS!
i'm buying my boyfriend a sweater from express men. he loves to look classy.
I HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!
