A bottle of wine is a great gift for a host or hostess. It makes a wonderful neighbor gift. The downfall of a bottle of wine is there are a pain to wrap. No one wants to just stick a bow on a bottle either. A bag makes a great way to package it.
If you have ever tried to take a nap on a flight or even the car you know a travel size pillow of your own is a life saver. This little pillow is perfect for the traveler in your life. If you have a kid who plays sports this is a great present for them too. Trust me a pillow between your head and that window keeps you from waking with a headache. You'll be a hero with this gift.
This is a great project to have the young people in your life make for others. Everyone has a pillow and what grandparent, aunt, or uncle wouldn't treasure a pillowcase made by your child. Kids all want to be part of the gift giving and this is a great way to do it.
Mason jar gifts are all the rage. I certainly understand why too. Putting the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies into a jar is quick and easy. They are great for neighbor and teacher jifts. The downfall is they aren't easy to wrap and if you are like me you get tired of sending everything in a gift bag. Or you worry that the bottom of the bag will bust open and there goes the jar. These bags solve that problem, they can be done in any fabric so no one will end up with twenty of the same bag and the bottom won't bust open.
I made fleece blankets for my girl's night out group a few years ago. They were a huge hit. There is so much great fleece out there today that you can find fleece for every person on your list.
I'm not sure if this gift is more for the babies in your life or their parents. I have never known a parent who said they had too many bibs or burp rags. These come together so quickly that you really could make one in every color.
We can't forget our feline friends. Our kitties need to have something to play with too. These catnip toys are just perfect and you can tell this one is kitty approved.
Reversible Baby Blanket
I love blankets and baby blankets let you use all those great novelty prints. These are so quick to whip out. Much like the bib and burp cloth set no baby has enough blankets.
These would be great for a gift exchange at school, church, youth group, etc. Make a few of these and fill them up with snacks. This is another great project to get the kids involved in. Let them pick the fabric and have them help you put them together.
