Easy Birthday Gifts!

Let me paint you this picture: Imagine me. It’s 3 pm. Dinner to celebrate my best friend’s birthday is at 6 pm. I have nothing to give her. I’m tired. I decide to take a nap so I set my alarm for 4 to give myself enough time to get ready AND grab a gift. I have this horrible problem of sleeping through my alarm so you can imagine my horror when I wake up at 5:45. I show up to the birthday party. Late. With nothing. Thankfully my friend loves me and so our friendship did not suffer. However, I have vowed to never let this happen again and to always have a quick, easy gift on-hand! To save you from the embarrassment of showing up with nothing to give the bday queen and the stress of running around looking for a gift 10 minutes before the celebration starts, I put together some fun gift ideas full of #Riffrafflove!
