February VT Gifts
My dear friend Kristi encouraged me to share some of the ideas that I come up with for visiting teaching gifts for the ladies that we visit each month. I try to come up with something that is about $1 and challenge myself to create something fun out of it. For November, for example, I used these ceramic leaf ramekins from Target's $1 spot and filled them with blessing mix. I usually start thinking about things for the next month's gift a month ahead of time because like any inexpensive, cute things, they're gone before you know it. I got the heart dishes I used for February at Michaels for $1 when I was shopping their after Christmas sale. Last time I was there, they were all gone. I loved that they were oven safe, so I made little mini cakes (chocolate, of course) and frosted them and added a flower shaped sugar decoration to the top. Easy!
