Super Easy Valentine's Gift for Your Mom Friends

Finishing up some sweet hosted gifts for our cookie day today

If you follow me onthe Instagram you may have seen this photo I posted back in December.  Am I the only one who calls it "the Instagram"? 


Like old people calling diabetes "the sugar diabetes".

Oh Lordy. 

Anywho, I think this is going to quickly become my signature gift because

a) it was so super easy


2) it's super easy to personalize between each person even if you are giving the same gift combo to numerous people and

c) it's super easy relatively inexpensive (ha I was on a super easy kick so just had to throw that last one in there!)


Upon looking at my picture I realized you may not even be able to see what the heck I am talking about so allow me to divulge...

I went to my Mother in Law's for a cookie making day with all of the ladies in our family and I made a little gift of a dish towel with a cookie cutter hanging from it.  Two things you can use in the kitchen.  I got the cookie cutter because it was cookie day but I was thinking you could do it other times too. 

For instance, if you want to steal my idea I am getting ready to get some together for Valentine's Day.  I mean, all of my friends have kids so everyone is always using cookie cutters.  And who doesn't use towels?  Unless you're a troll living under a bridge you use towels.  I bet trolls even use towels. 

Try saying that three times fast. 

I'll wait.


I was trolling Amazon (ha with me now!) and found these cuties:

Aren't these so cute?  These are $7.88 and are eligible for free shipping.  And it comes with 2 cutters so you could split it between two gift bundles or give them both to the same friend. 

I love this hot pink Mama!  So fun and cute and it is such a great size for cookies!  Plus it is on sale for only $4.50, 42% off plus it's eligible for free shipping. 

You could pair one of those cutters with one of these sweet towels.  Aren't they just adorable? They're 100 % cotton which is always important to me because they absorb so much more! And they are $15.50 for three of them.  That's $5.17 a towel, ya know :)

I love these towels too but they're a little salty for my cheap self :) They're $27.97 for the set with free shipping eligible.  So if anyone wants me to give me a gift here's an idea, wink, wink, nudge, nudge :).  This set comes with one cookie cutter and four of identical towels.  These are just the cutest ever!

One of my kitchen staples is baker's twine.  You can use it to tie boxes but I seem to use it a lot to tie gifts.  Towels with cookie cutters for example :)  Or if you're giving someone a bag of something (chex mix?) it's so cute to put it in a clear bag and tie it with bakers twine.  Fancier than a Ziploc, speedier than light.  If you don't want as big a thing of twine there are smaller ones available. 

So with those three things you can assemble an adorable gift.  I just take the cookie cutter out of the packaging, string it through with the bakers twine, wrap it around the towel a few times and tie it with a simple bow.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy friends! 

So there you have it! 

Have fun putting these together!  It's so fun to give gifts to friends, isn't it? 

I'd love to know if you have a tried and true gift you love to give.  Comment below with what it is, I'm always looking for fun idea.
