You have tons of options to choose from, and I’m sure you will find something that you will like. This list has a wide variety of categories, from home products to beauty care, and lanterns! You can even give them a seed starter kit that they can use next year. Personally, I love the mugs and mason jar lanterns, as I love drinking coffee and looking at the sunset. Browse through this list and start making your gifts.


1 – Vibrant Nail Polish Mugs

Fill a 5-inch deep plastic container with warm water, then make a swirl using nail polish. Blow it to disperse, then slowly dip the bottom of your mug. Work quickly to get the best results. For multicolored, use a toothpick to swirl. Spray it with clear acrylic sealant spray two times to seal the nail polish.
