Passport Holder | Poppytalk
If you know someone who is travelling, this is the perfect present. Because really, who uses those travel diaries?! You always start with the best intentions but then you have too much fun and the entries stop around the third day. But this present is different, because not only is it practical but it’s pretty too. I have to say that my passport holder was invaluable, especially because I’m pretty bad with losing important stuff!
Rubber stamps by Norajane | Let’s Go Shopping!
At these prices, you can afford to buy more than one of these adorable stamps. There are so many uses too - add one to your signature (if you’re still one of those folks who write paper letters), stamp some blank cards (if you’re still one of those people who send paper cards) or even decorate the front of your notebooks (if you’re still one of those people who uses paper writing pads). You know what - you should buy one anyway - I’m sure you’ll find some use for them!
Homemade Pancake Mix Jars | Good Life Eats
I’m super obsessed with pancakes at the moment. Oh my gosh, there’s nothing better than fluffy, hot pancakes topped with butter and maple syrup. And even better is pancakes with lemon and sugar. Yummmm. And what better than giving the gift of delicious pancakes! Oh man. Someone come over and make me some pancakes.

Pie In A Jar | Not Martha
So we’ve had cupcakes in a car, and now… pie in a jar! I truly adore the little love heart cut out the top of this pie! This is such a good idea for those times when you’ve got nothing in the house but you need something sweet. This happens to me all the time. And also: great presents! Especially those birthdays that you completely forgot about but don’t want to let on that you did! 'Oh yeah, I just made this adorable little pie in a jar especially for you *quickly closes freezer door* for your birthday!’
Surprise Balls | Not Martha
These surprise balls remind me of pass the parcel! How fun are these?! As you unwrap the streamers you find little toys and gifts until you get to the centre that you can fill with whatever you like - chocolate, scratchie cards, etc. They would be super fun for Christmas too instead of having bon bons - and it also means that you can choose what people get (no weird plastic shapes). I like how Megan has also listed what you can include for different themes. I think I need to make some of these for my upcoming party!
Sweet Treat Favor Tin | The Inspired Bride
I love giving presents, especially for no good reason! And that’s why I love these free labels for these sweet little tins, they’re simple but easy to make in bulk. The fact that the lid is editable means you could use the labels to make tins of everything, including tea which is what I’m going to use them for - perfect thank yous to some close friends who have been so good to me lately <3
