4 of 21 DIY Projects: Themed Gifts

I made a cute little container for my brother’s girlfriend for her birthday. I am a huge fan of themed gifts (especially girly ones) and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a little pampering?


I purchased a glass container (from Hobby Lobby) that I loved and thought would be versatile if she wanted to change its use. Then I found a ton of small things (in similar colors) that would fit in the container that went with my theme:
-nail clippers
-emery board
-toe separators
-nail polish
-a little bottle of nail polish remover
-cotton balls

To put it together, I first put the cotton balls at the bottom to give it a soft look and cushion at the bottom. Then I filled it with everything else, moving things around until the set up was how I wanted it to look. At the end, I glued a denim flower (that is the same size as the lid) on top and added her name in black foam stickers on the outside.


My favorite gifts to give are the ones I want to keep. In the future, I want to do more that are similar to this including:

-housewarming gifts
-Christmas themed
-other pampering ideas (comfy socks, lotion, bubble bath, sugar scrub)
-sweet 16 (anything car related)
-hot cocoa (mix, marshmallows, peppermint candies)
-school supplies

There are a lot of things that can be done with this and there are even more options with bigger glass containers!
