happy day of birth

Today is a perfect day to showcase a birthday gift, since it is the special day of a good friend. April is mass birthday month, so I needed a gift I could easily replicate. On Givers Log I found this sweet tutorial that was easily converted to flower vases.

In the birthday card, I included a note that said "You deserve flowers!" and $5 to go buy some. The clock was a clearance purchase from Urban Outfitters, which was a great deal until I put in a battery and the hands didn't move. Bummer.

Any other great strategies for giving multiple gifts in a short time frame?

You are a sweet friend! This is a super cute combo.

I'm am huge on food gifts...sometimes I wonder if my friends get tired of it. Canning preserves, homemade granola and marshmallows seem to work well. Of course, I pair it with other things:

Preserves with good bread.
Granola with yogurt.
Marshmallows with chocolate and graham crackers.

The pairing is SUCH a good idea though! I think that makes it even better than homemade goods (which are already great). I need to learn food better, that and plants are something I want to be good at.
