{DIY} Easy Gift Ideas

I'm always on the hunt for easy and affordable gift ideas for giving to people, especially my family. I don't want to spend a lot {and I don't believe you have to} but I do want it to be special and from the heart! My niece and nephews birthdays were this month, and I was having a hard time deciding what to get them. They already have a ton of toys and clothing. So I decided to go simple, I thought these gifts turned out cute. 

I picked up these $5 movies from Target and paired them with a bag of popcorn since movies and popcorn go so well together I thought it was perfect! 



I then used some ribbon and tissue paper I already had on hand and wrapped them up all pretty, looking like this:


Next I added a card, and got them ready to mail! 


Isn't that so cute! And the best part was getting a phone call from my niece yesterday telling me how much she loved her movie! And my Step-Dad thinking it was so cool that I sent a bag of popcorn along. his exact words: "Leave it to Annie to think of the neatest things."

Yup, I think I did good. All smiles on this end. SO glad it could help make their birthdays a little special especially since we can't be there! 

Linking this post to: 


  1. Great gift idea! And I noticed that we have the same high-chair. I'm not loving it because ours keeps getting food stuck in all the groves under the pad and everywhere! Ours is so grody!

  2. Great idea, especially when you need to mail a gift! The Pretty Packages Party is going on now. I'd love for you to stop by and share your fantastic gift idea.



  3. Cute, clever, fun, practical -- all wrapped up together! Love it!
