Advice please!

So I've been debating what, exactly, to make for my co-workers. Do you think even men could enjoy/appreciate a dishcloth/towel/potholder set of some kind? Some of them are married, and a few single.. if not, any other ideas? I was thinking I'd do more of a bath-themed one for the women.. think that'd be good or would it be the same for each?

The way I figure it, I'd get little gift bags or put something together with clear-wrap tied with bows with cloths and soap and bath things, or with the kitchen things plus some sort of goodie or recipe or something.

Thoughts??

My only other idea for the men would be a simple ribbed scarf. I don't know if it gets cold where you live but if it does that is an item they would use quite often.

Hope that this helps.

Oh, I do like your idea of doing a bath-themed gift for the women. I may have to steal that one if you don't mind.

How about a starbuck's gift card, in an empty starbucks coffee cup (the cardboard type) with a handknit cozy... for the guys I mean.. :-) for the girls too if you think they'd like it!

Ooh both very good ideas. The scarves perhaps not as I'm in georgia, but thanks for the idea. A scarf would always be a good man present haha

And the cup idea is very cool too!

Hrm. And faster perhaps LOL

Along with the cozy for the cups...how about coasters?

Anne said...

OH! that'd work - I could totally make little felted coasters for folks desk at work! Ooh ooh good idea! And not all that hard to do!

Michelle said...

Oooh I love the coasters idea! Perfect! :-) You could make them look like candy peppermints ;-)

Now I can't wait to see them when they are done!
