A few nice Homemade Gifts images I found:
Andrea’s bookends: the I Am Ridiculous Club, I am a member

I can’t explain really, but Andrea linked to this post of homemade bookends before the holidays, and I desperately wanted to make some for her. But I wanted to make something original. So then that thing happened where I "got creative" and lost my mind.
I ended up being inspired by this WPA poster with the "Be Kind to Books Club: Are you a member?" slogan. And then I spent too long in a Michaels store and came out with cardboard dinosaurs? And then I bought some picture easels from an art store. And then, well.
Actually I love them. They’re so goony they are awesome.
(Special thanks to Evan for hand-lettering assistance, obviously.)
this sugar scrub happens to be simply 1/2 cup of brown sugar mixed with a little scoop of coconut oil, plus a drop of vanilla. then same thing with white sugar. mix ’em all up. make layers in a jar. I am telling them to use it as a nightly hand scrub. Gently exfoliates, coconut oil moisturizes, smells like a cookie.
