Birthday Gift Idea

In honor of all the birthday parties we've attended (or will attend) this month, I thought I'd share one of our favorite (read ~ easy, inexpensive, and a big hit) gifts to give.

An apron (Hobby Lobby, $2.99), a cookie cutter (Hobby Lobby, $.99), cookie mix (Target, $1.50, I think), a tub of frosting with sprinkles (Target, dunno the cost). This gift is for a set of twins, so I got two different types of cookie mix: Sugar and Peanut Butter (with Hershey Kisses instead of frosting).

I appliqued initials on these aprons, but I've also used paint markers to write names and draw pictures.

To package, I used a 2/$1 paper bag from Hobby Lobby and paint markers to decorate (eliminating the need for a card):

I was looking at your blog with Pressley next to me and she started yelling "My cookie present! Look, Lyla, its our present!" They were so excited! I had to distract them so I could post a comment because they just wanted me to scroll up and down from one pic to the other... over, and over and over. Great idea, and it certainly was a HUGE hit in this house! Thanks!
