I'm thinking bath fizzies may be a fun gift this year. Add those with a crochet special wash cloth - like in the shape of a flower or something.

that page IS awesome :tu

I love the crochet wash cloth idea :) i wonder if anyone I know takes baths. ONly my youngest two kids do and I know my sister's kids shower :think

I was considering doing the scented coasters :tu and maybe the foot scrub :)

what about aromatherapy bath gels/soaps and a fun washcloth?

You could add to that a small face towel that's embellished with ribbon. :shrug That'd be cheap

floral pens in flower pots

You take a pen, and a fake flower, and use floral tape to wrap the stem to the pen. Then you glue a block of styrofoam or floral foam to the bottom of a flower pot, and glue a little dried Spanish moss to hide it. Stick the pens into the foam block, and you have a flower pot full of pretty pens that are harder to for people borrow and lose.

I got one as a teacher gift, and have made them now or anyone with a desk...homeschoolers, moms, anyone who can't find a pen when they need it.

that's a really cool gift! Plus it might deter my husband from walking off with my floral pens (although he'll tell you I'm far more guilty of that).
