DIY Gift Idea: For your MistleTOES!

Happy Monday!

Today’s post is the perfect little gift for co-workers or girlfriends. A couple of years ago, I made this for my female co-workers. I always like to put a little something together for the girls in the office that I’m close with–in most jobs, especially sports, you spend a TON of time with one another and they’re all such great people. It’s the least I can do to thank them for the vent sessions or the help or advice for an event!

When I plan for gifts in the office every year, I always want to get something that can actually be used. Food is always a good option, too, but I usually prefer to do a gift for the ladies (we all know the guys prefer sweets!). This DIY was my gift two years ago and last year, I did a set of wine charms (DIY coming later this week). Hopefully, the girls think they’re useful! This would make a great hostess gift, too — you can always include multiple bottles of polish!

Here’s how I did it:

Supplies

-Bottle of nail polish (I got mine for $1 a piece at Ulta on Black Friday – they were holiday-ish colors!)

Glitter pens (I use these and LOVE them; they’re great for nail art, too!)

Clear plastic bags

Jingle bells

Thin red ribbon

Blank gift tags

Fake snow

Red shredded metallic paper (Found this online, but I usually just buy it at Michael’s)

Instructions:

1-Make your tags. You’ll want to include “For your MistleTOES” on it somewhere, but put your spin on it. I used a Sharpie to write the message and then used the glitter pens to highlight ‘TOES’ and the heart.

2-Fill the bag about 1/3 full with the metallic shredded paper.

3-Add the nail polish bottle.

4-Lastly, sprinkle a little faux snow in the bag to give it some sparkle.

5-String the tag and tie it around the top of the bag once.

6-String your jingle bell on next and tie a double knot before tying the rest of the ribbo in a bow.

Easy, right? This idea was on Pinterest a few years ago and my co-worker and I both did it for everyone! Haha! But, you can never have too much nail polish, right?

What gifts do you give your co-workers? What’s your go-to DIY gift? Would love to hear more ideas!

Have a great day!
