Birthday Gifts Week {gives from the past and a giveaway}

Today, I am going to share a few links to some fun gift ideas that I have given in the past.

…and I also have a great giveaway.

This is a sweet little stationary tray that we gave for Birthday’s last year.


The year before that, we made a homemade apron, and passed along a recipe for cookies made from a cake mix.


We included the cake mix with the gift. I can’t seem to find the post about this.  It was much to long ago.

This sweet monkey shirt was made for my adorable nephew.

I have also enjoyed making framed monograms to give to friends.  Here are a few that I made.

I have also given these away as a gift to a neighbor or a friend when you just want to say hi, thank you, or cheer them up.


I am leaving you with one last homemade gift idea.  Except you don’t have to make this one. 

Tess skirt (2 of 6)

Remember my sister and her cute shirts?  Well today she is giving away a skirt to one lucky J and A & Co. reader.

Please visit her site, and leave me a comment about how much you want the skirt and why.

I will pick the winner, on Monday March 19th in the afternoon.

I ordered this skirt for my little miss, and I just love it.

It is so cute. The yellow is bright and springy. I just had my 4th little girl so the skirt would be well loved and passed down through them all. Thanks for the opportunity.

I want that skirt! It would be perfect for a spring photoshoot.
