This past Christmas, I decided to get small gifts for three of my good friends just to show that I care. Ladies love a good flower and so, without breaking the bank I came up with three individualized gifts: one that is classic and feminine, another that’s a bit more industrial for the cool city girl, and the perfect flower for a nature lover and full time wanderer.
They’re really simple to make, if you feel so inclined.
First, you’re going to need some glass bottles, preferably ones that come with tasty beverages inside that you simply must drink. I got mine from World Market (of course) for $1.20 each. Also, clean the bottles well. That pretty much goes without saying.
Get yourself up to Walmart or Michael’s for some natural grainy sand ($5). Make sure you know how much fluid ounces your bottles hold so you get the right amount of sand. I also picked up two bracelets for friends that matched their personalities (and the bottles I chose for them) from World Market.
Then head to Michael’s or Hobby Lobby and get some small flowers to put inside the bottles. I brought my bottles in, sat down in the middle of the aisle and laid everything out to find the right matches.
Badda boom badda bang! Assemble, sit back, and admire your handy work.
I really enjoyed matching up gifts with the personalities of my dear friends. They weren’t too expensive (probably around $8 each) and it is just a fun, small gesture that shows you care!
