sometimes life's rough & we just need a good ol' perk-me-up gift basket from our girls.
can i get an amen?
if you don't already keep a basket or box of little last minute, quick gifts - do it.
i keep my basket of little gifts in my guest bedroom closet. i pick up things here & there that tickle my fancy or are on clearance for a great price. when i need a gift, i look through my basket & pick out items that would fit that person's interests & style.
this is perfect for those moments when you feel the urge to give but you don't have the budget or the time to run to target.
when my gal pal mentioned that she was going through a particularly challenging season, my tribe of lady friends pitched in a couple of dollars each & we made her this basket. we included a bottle of izze & straws, nail polish, a cinnamon roll & a bouquet of flowers to add a bit of happy to her day.
i even re-used the colorful izze box, which is just the cutest. from trash to treasure, i say.
a bit of crinkly turquoise paper from amanda's shop along with sequins, gold, a clothespin & the perfect card to reminder her that she is indeed "beauty full."
this little package came together in just a handful of minutes & brightened her day!
how do you love on your gal pals? i'd love to read your ideas!
