Christmas Gift Ideas

There's only 4 more days until the big day and I'm just finishing up gifts for the kids teachers and neighbors. I also just mailed out the last of our Christmas cards. Yep, I'm a little behind this year. 

Because I've left things to the last minute, we needed some quick but fun gifts to give neighbors and the kids teachers. Here are four simple gifts that were sparked by other creative individuals. (Thank goodness for Pinterest).

Festive Mixing Bowls
These mixing bowls were so simple to put together. I bought the bowls at the dollar store. Pull out your cutting machine and cut out circles on red and green vinyl. (Make sure to wash these bowls by hand). Decorate with the circles, then add some kind of mix.

Recipe Book with Dish

This fall I went to Swiss Days and came across a booth called Lemon Poppy. They were selling the most darling recipe books. The photos in the books make you want to lick the pages because the food looks so yummy! I bought a few of the "When Life Gives You Christmas" recipe books along with the polka dotted dish to give to friends this Christmas. Then wrapped them up. 
Go check out Lemon Poppy Inc. here. While your there, read Ali's story about how she started Lemon Poppy, she's truly inspiring!

 Santa Plate
 The Santa plate is just a plastic plate from the dollar store. (They came 2/$1.00) Add vinyl lettering then put in a yummy cookie mix.
 Merry Christmas tag from Eighteen 25

Peppermint Sugar Scrub
 The peppermint sugar scrub idea and tag came from The Idea Room. She also has a few other sugar scrub recipes that I love! Make the peppermint sugar scrub then put it in some kind of jar. I also added a pair of soft red and white socks.
 One of my favorite ways to give gifts are in gable boxes. There are so many possibilities to decorating them. I used these green and red gable boxes to put the sugar scrub and socks in.
  Have a wonderful Christmas!
