Sweet little gifts....

Every year I make inexpensive, creative little gifts for friends, family, and also a few extras to have for hostess gifts, or to have on hand, just in case. I've been working on gifts for everyone on my list, but wasn't sure what to do for the extras. I thought I'd like to use my new tins but wanted to add a little something to them... and finally today, creativity struck!

Faux bois tin filled with homemade white chocolate peppermint bark (get it?).

Honeycomb tin filled with teas, and maybe one of the little honey dippers.

Blossoms tin filled with packets of seeds for spring flowers.

What creative little gifts are you giving this year?

These look great!
I am going to give people chickens and goats from World Vision(the chickens and goats go to the needy people in Africa who need them badly) and my friends receive a beautiful card explaining that the chickens and goats where donated on their behalf.

I wish I had time to make something fun - i normally do but not this year!

These are really cute creations! I have seen so many tins as favors at weddings and I think these too can be a perfect choice! Love them!
