While this is a bit past due (from Christmas!), I like to think that you don't need a holiday to give a gift! It seems that unless the 'gift-ee' has very specific hobbies, it's typically difficult to get the right gift for someone.
I'm personally a big fan of creating something with a smidgen of flair. This doesn't always go as planned, but it's the thought that counts, right?
My hubs and I were having a devil of a time finding out what to get for his parents, but with Moscow Mules becoming all the rage lately and my mother-in-love enjoying a fun twist to the typical, we thought a Moscow Mule gift set would be perfect!
If you want to do something similar, grab the ingredients for someone's favorite drink and throw in some drink ware. This specifically had vodka, two bottles of Ginger beer (which I didn't realize is typically non-alcoholic), two copper mugs and some limes.
Put it all together in a cute box or basket- perhaps adding some string for flair!
I also added a recipe card for fun. I think it really pulled it together and gives the recipient a good reference point so they know how to use their gift.
This was a blast to plan out, not to mention that this one really didn't break the bank at all. Definitely a plus for me!
Have a fantastic weekend, all! We're enjoying 60 degree weather today (which is awesome for Iowa in February), so I'm getting lots of packing done with the windows open. Love the fresh air!
