Summer Gift idea
After over 15 years of celebrating birthdays together, it is getting hard for my friends and I to find unique gifts. We don't need things to sit around the house and if we do, we want to pick them out ourselves. I took a cue from a gift my friend gave me years ago of a beach bag filled with goodies like nail polish, a beach read, a floppy hat, etc and got her some 'fun in the sun' things that everyone needs in the summer - sunscreen, lotions, nail polish, etc. It isn't a glamorous gift but we can both appreciate practicality.
To wrap it up, I recycled a shopping bag that miraculously didn't have a logo and added a handmade tag. I think the stamp set for this is from Fancy Pants. I bought it ages ago from Peach Cheap and haven't used it that much. To do the wave, I stamped in Versamark and then used chalks.
What good gift ideas do you have for long-time (notice I did NOT say Old) friends? We like celebrating birthdays, but not getting older. :-)
Thanks for stopping by!
