So my mom requested salt and pepper shakers for Christmas. The ones I got are very plain - like the kind you would see in any restaurant.  I wanted to make them a little special/add a handmade touch so I figured I would etch them. Since I've run out of Xmas funds, I'm pretty much limited to etching since I already own the stuff.

but . . .  I have no idea what to etch on them besides "S" and "P," etc.  it's not a big working surface - maybe about 3" high by 2" around.

What about some pretty little flourishes under the letter or something? It might help make the shakers look a little more ornate.

i know this might be late but... what about "achoo" and "needs more salt"

you could make them striped or polka dotted, or somehow match her kitchen decor

My neighbors who I babysit for have the prettiest shakers. They're small glass one's like yours but they have purple and red flowers painted on them. Maybe a field of flowers around the bottom? I have no familiarity whatsoever with etching, so I'm not sure how hard that would be to do.
