Then I had to come up with a cute way to wrap the gift. I had a box from Ikea that once held a set of wine glasses so I decided to use that. I covered it with pink paper, and then put cupcake duct tape along the top edge. Presto, cute box!

DIY Birthday/Hostess Gift
I will freely admit to being terrible at buying presents for people. I leave it to the last minute, and I never know what to get. I figure, for most of my friends, booze is always a good option. But a bottle of wine (while awesome) isn't the most exciting gift. But have no fear, there is a way to spice up this standard present! I got this idea from Pinterest (duh) and this lovely pic. This bottle of wine was for my friend Stacey for her 30th birthday. I decided on pink glitter since we are both fans of pink, and I figured I would brand it with her name so no one else could have any! First, I took the label off the wine bottle and scrubbed away the excess yucky stickiness. I used vinyl letters to spell out her name, then covered the bottle with Mod Podge and lots of pink glitter. When the glue dried, I peeled off the letters (carefully). I sprayed the whole thing with a clear coat sealer to make sure I didn't leave a glitter trail on the way to her party.
Not bad for last minute huh? Hope this inspires you to come up with some cool gifts of your own!
