Monogrammed Bar Towel or Napkins
Man, I hate to iron, but I’d do it for my friends if these cute monogrammed napkins were the outcome. All you need is embroidered iron-on letters and some fabric napkins. And a little enthusiasm never hurt anyone, either. But, that’s optional. Learn how to do this at House of Earnest.

Cookies in a Jar
This is a cute idea, but when really pondered it’s sort of saying “you gotta meet me halfway on this one.” It’s packaged so adorably though, that the recipient won’t even mind that she has to put in work to enjoy these cookies. But maybe that’s what a good friend does… teach work ethic. OK, I took it to a weird place. Let’s focus on the spirit of giving, shall we? Learn how to make these at Frog, Goose and Bear.

Root Beer Reindeer
Got pipe cleaners, googly eyes, a glue gun and six pack? Well, then you’ve got yourself some Reindeer Root Beer to give away, honey. I’m sure it goes without saying that you can make an adult-beverage version, as well. And it also goes without saying that by “six-pack,” I didn’t mean your washboard abs. Settle down, Muscles.

Homemade Spice Blends
I know that I would love to receive a gift of homemade spice blends. I would put that unique and thoughtful gift to good use. But I have to admit, when making this gift for friends, it would be hard for me not to be a joker and switch up the labels. But you’re probably more mature than me.
