Tag Archives: housewarming gift

Dear Martha, Thanks for the inspiration — again!

So, I have a thing for gift-giving…I can’t JUST buy a gift card (although I do love receiving them) and I love to put useful things together to make a nice gift for someone. So when I saw this from Martha, I knew that it would be the PERFECT gift for a friend that just bought a house:

So, off to one of my favorite stores — Dollar Tree and this is what I came up with (sorry for the horrible photo):

So, I found a black pastic bucket (not the beautiful tin one Martha used, but useful none-the-less), and filled it with scissors, spic and span cleaner, clorox bleash, flashlights, batteries, picture hangers, magic erasers, sponges, Execedrin Migraine, and a few other incredibly useful things and tied a pretty (ish) bow around it! All together, it cost $17 including the ribbon, the card, the bucket and the contents! And, best of all, my friend loved it!

Enjoy!
