DIY on a Dime: Perk up a Purse

Posted By Jessica Fisher On December 15, 2012 @ 2:00 pm In Christmas,DIY,Gift Ideas,Great Gifts | 5 Comments

This month has been pretty rough for me. I know that I am not the only one. I’ve found that crafting and making gifts for folks has been great therapy. It gets my mind away from worrisome thoughts and focuses on blessing others instead. This easy-to-assemble gift is one of those things.

How many of us drag around a load of junk in our purses? [raises hand] Guilty as charged. I’ve found some amazing bits and pieces that would make you laugh.

This little gift is inspired by those moments of rummaging around in my bag for a mint or a pen. Give some lucky lady a bag full of tricks this Christmas. This little kit can perk up any purse.

Not only does this bag include all sorts of great treats to gift to a friend, but it’s fairly economical, too. Run by Walmart or the dollar store for some things, fill in the gaps with pricier pieces like the gift card to your favorite coffee shop.

You’ll need the following supplies:

  • a make-up bag
  • travel kleenex
  • small notebook and pen
  • granola or cereal bar
  • mints, chocolates, or gum
  • hand sanitizer
  • gift cards
  • any other fun perks you can think of

The purpose to this gift is to compile a bunch of fun stuff that your friend may or may not buy for herself. You can add special touches, by buying an extra special pen or notebook, her favorite granola bar, or getting extravagant in the dollar amount on the gift card.

Think about what would make her smile and then add that!
