My nephew James is turning 21! For BIG birthdays we all put in money and give cash, so that the recipient can buy something special, however I always like to give a little gift so that they have a "present" to open on the day.
James is having a party today, so I thought that I would make a "Morning After" kit seeing how he is celebrating his 21st birthday and may need it tomorrow.
I went the the local discount store and supermarket for all the goodies that I used to fill this metal tub.
All inexpensive items, as it meant to be a "fun" gift only
The items I bought:
First aid kit, Cold Pack, Chap Stick, Panadol, Hairy Lemon Vitamin B, Mouthwash
Tissues, Cracker Biscuits, Recover Protein Bar, Mentos mints
DVD and Sunglasses
All the items were placed in the metal tub, and a little label created and tied on with Bakers Twine.
I am still debating whether or not I will wrap the whole tub in cellophane?
The next birthday is my sister-in-law Jennene's on Monday 14th
Once again I purchased a gift voucher, this time for a manicure and / or pedicure
Rather than just popping the voucher in with the card, I filled a gift box with cotton balls, and tied together a bottle of nail polish and a emery board with a little ribbon. Then placed these on top of the envelope with the gift voucher.
Another fun way to present your gift, and very easy to post.
Do you also have gifts early in the year? It is hard to think of something to give after all the Christmas shopping.
Until next time
