It's December and that means that winter weather is here!!! Dry winter air is rough on my skin, plain and simple and I imagine it's got to be rough on just about everyone's skin. So, if you're looking for a great winter gift idea to give to someone, might I suggest Udderly Smooth Lotions.
I have used Udderly Smooth Hand Cream for years. I keep a nice small tube of it in my desk drawer and purse and it is quite honestly the best stuff to have 'on hand' when you need to prevent dry skin. That's why I'm perfectly happy giving it as gifts. I mean who doesn't need hand cream...it's perfect for anyone who has to use their hands a lot or are on their feet all day, teachers, cashiers, postal workers, restaurant workers, nurses YOU NAME IT!.....and if you need a creative way to present your gift to someone, I GOT YOU, BOO.
Here are two very simple ideas you I know you will love!
Idea #1 - Warm Hands Manicure in a Mug.
Fill a mug with Udderly Smooth Hand Cream, a hot chocolate packet, knitted gloves, nail polish, emery board and perhaps a special fun treat - I used Milk straws. You can even add a personal touch with a monogram mug!
You can package the mug in cellophane and add ribbon and trim. I created a gift card holder using a Sizzix Die Cut by Laura Kelly Designs. You can follow the steps below to make your own.
Using the Laura Kelly Hot Chocolate die by Sizzix, run paper and and felt through a Big Shot. I used two patterned papers for my spoon and mug, brown paper for the hot chocolate, white glitter paper for the marshmallows and pink felt for the back.
Pull apart or cut the sections from the brown paper and adhere the top section of the brown paper to the mug shape. Then adhere the remaining brown piece to the back of the patterned paper leaving space to slide your gift card into.
Add more adhesive with a strong bond tape runner or glue and attach the full felt shape to the back of the card.
Place the marshmallows shape into the the slots on the front brown piece and secure in place with adhesive.
To make the spoon and pink heart, simply run your paper and felt through the Big Shot and assemble. I created the pink heart by running a piece of felt through the cutter and then snipped off the handle from the spoon shape with scissors. You can make the spoon tag by cutting out shapes with twos separate pieces of patterned paper. Attach the spoon tag with ribbon or twine and tie it to your mug. You can write or stamp a simple sentiment onto the tag.
Idea #2 - Warmest Winter Wishes Gift Box
If you're not in a crafty mood, simply fill a pretty gift box with paper sizzle and add a few Udderly Smooth products.
