Last Minute Gift Idea for Your Best Gals

I dropped one of these babies off at my friend Amy’s house today.  I don’t get to spend nearly enough time with her as I would like to.  But I wanted to let her know that I was thinking about her.  And what girl wouldn’t want to find one of these little bags waiting for them when they get home.

 

Girls love the bubbles and they couldn’t be cuter when served in a small pink can with straw.  These Sofia’s are found in a 4 packs at your local Bev Mo.  Bev Mo also has these travel (? – should alcohol really be travel sized?  I don’t know what else to call these, airplane sized??) bottles of St. Germain, a delicious elderflower liqueur (note:  this link will take you to the full size bottle, the small sized is about $5) that pairs ridiculously awesomely with champagne.  Bev Mo has way more than the standard cheap gins and gross tequilas in this cute size.  So many fun ideas are running around in my head. I packaged it up really simply in a muslin bag and made a quick sparkly “A” with double stick tape and glitter.  I am a huge fan of temporary flourishes so that the bag can be reused if the recipient wants to.  AND I really like the straight lines of the tape.

The next best thing to sharing a drink with a good friend is having one ready for them when they need it.  Now, I hope I find 7 of these on my porch tomorrow. :)

Happy Holidays!

  1. I haven’t seen double stick glitter tape, where did you get it? Oh & the muslin bag, please give me your sources.

      I made the glitter tape. I just used double stick tape and then sprinkled glitter on. This is not heirloom quality. :) And the muslin bag I got from Lauren of A Fabulous Fete, you can probably buy some plain through her etsy shop or else find them elsewhere on etsy. :)

  2. It was the most fab gift to find lying on my doorstep on December 20 (the first day the kiddies were out of school)…thanks Sharon… you rock!!

  3. I agree with Lyndsey, that double-sided tape and glitter idea is genius! And this whole gift bag idea is great. :-)

  4. SUPER awesome ideas! Double stick tape + glitter = GENIUS!

  5. I love St. Germain. And the bottle is so pretty too. You’re such a nice friend.

  6. omg! putting glitter on double-sided tape?!?!? WHY didn’t i ever think of that? you are a genius. and now i know how i will be embellishing all my xmas gifts this year :) thanks for the tip. i’d love to get a cute little package like that (though i’d prefer mine stuffed w/ non-alcoholic beverages since i don’t drink ;) — another use for izze!
