Gift Ideas

Here it is Christmas night, the gifts are open, the festivities are done. We had a wonderful Chrismtas celebrating the birth of our Savior, and enjoying the gift of family! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, as well!

I just thought I'd pop on tonight and share some of the gifts I made for my mom and sisters. I purchased a roll of wrapping paper, matching ribbon, and then made gift tags to match. I often put these ensembles together for "token" birthday gifts for friends. I made these for my sisters 2 years ago and they loved them, so thought I'd do it again this year for Christmas. (I've even put together a year round set for a Bridal Shower gift.)

These first two were for my sisters. One sister has 3 boys, so I wanted to make her a more grown-up girly set for her to use for her girlfriends. The second set is for my sister who has 4 girls. She's constantly buying gifts for the various birthday parties her girls are invited to. Thought this would be appropriate.

These last two were for my mom. One set of "boy" and one set of "girl". She has 6 granddaughters and 5 grandsons, so I'm sure these will get used up pretty quickly! If you're ever stumped for a gift idea for a girlfriend, think about trying this - they'll love it!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
