I like to give a gift from the heart. I like it to be special, useful and so the person I am giving it to knows she is cherished. At the moment I am giving shoe bags. Look, it is j-u-s-t a shoe bag but also so much more. It represents love, caring, friendship and beauty. My mottos: 'See beauty in the everyday'. 'Take joy from the simple things in life'. If my friends go on a trip and get joy from packing their shoes in these handmade shoe bags. Hooray!!!
I carefully select beautiful material for the birthday girl (let's face it all this would be wasted on a boy!) Something that represents them as a person: could be girly, modern, something with their favourite design or colour... I usually use a contrasting drawstring. These ones above are for a friend today whose birthday is soon and she is taking her children to Paris for Christmas. Paris!!
What do you think? Feel free to use this idea for your friends...
Ciao for now
