Personalized Gifts

When I don't have time to make a gift I like to use my embroidery machine to personalize a gift.
While browsing the baby department at Wal-Mart I found some plain bibs. 
 They were perfect for adding embroidery.
 I also purchased some onesies and added the words "Kiss Me" and "Hug Me" as well as a monogrammed letter "a".
 Each little item came out so cute and I plan to use this same idea the next time I need a gift.
Embroidery machines add such a nice touch and sure are a time saver!

I feel the same way about my embroidery machine.. it sits for weeks then let me need a gift and it's a life saver.. I'm going to steal your bib idea and embroider some for those unexpected gifts.

personalized gifts are so great. We try really hard to give something handmade for gifts, but if we can't we try to personalize the gift we do give. A friend and I were lamenting the other day about what a "gift card" culture we're becoming. We occasionally give gift cards but they are not our go to gift.

Patty, these turned out so pretty and very professional. Very impressive. Have you thought of listing these on Etsy and offering the personalized embroidery?
