I like to keep a bag or 2 of gifty things in the house. You never know when you will need a quick "little something" for someone. Or.....forget a birthday, NO! never mind, I'd NEVER do that!
This time I picked some cute note cards & 2 nice sized note books. I have one in my purse, one for knitting notes, and another for just reception plans etc........ I'm getting a bit A.D.D. about them but they help me keep organized. The note books & note cards have an initial on them, kept hidden for secret gifting purposes!
My other finds were recipe cards. Quite a few had a holiday motif but these are generic. I can stick them in a basket with home made jam & dish cloths for a last m inute holiday gift. You know, just in case!
