Housewarming Gifts to Keep On Hand

I like to have a few inexpensive gifts on hand for different occasions.  I usually have a boy baby gift, girl baby gift, and a housewarming gift ready to go for those occasions my husband comes home and says "I need a gift for. . . "  This does happen more often than I care to admit!  The nice thing about the housewarming gift is that it can double as a birthday gift, if needed.  Making gifts ahead of time lets you shop sales and keep things thrifty.

I bought two two-pack of dish towels from a discount bin.  I had two cute lime green spatulas left over from a cheap four pack I bought to make two gifts. 

I combined them.

The one on the right is the one I made first.  My daughter pointed out that you couldn't see the other dishtowel underneath so I folded the one on the left a bit different.

I also added a piece of cardboard to the middle of the dishtowel on the back.  It gives it a bit of support.  I also put a dab of hot glue on the spatula handle and stuck it to the ribbon so that it doesn't fall out.

I will add an appropriate tag when I'm getting ready to give these.
