Today is a perfect day to showcase a birthday gift, since it is the special day of a good friend. April is mass birthday month, so I needed a gift I could easily replicate. On Givers Log I found this sweet tutorial that was easily converted to flower vases.
In the birthday card, I included a note that said "You deserve flowers!" and $5 to go buy some. The clock was a clearance purchase from Urban Outfitters, which was a great deal until I put in a battery and the hands didn't move. Bummer.
Any other great strategies for giving multiple gifts in a short time frame?
