I got my pinterest account yesterday and I have been pinning everything.  I found a great gift idea that can be purchased or even made.  What is it?  Well, if the blog title didn't give it away, it's coasters.  I always get e-mails from ABC Distributing and Lakeside.  They have some really cute items and many not so cute items.  But, every time I get a new e-mail I always look at what may be new on their websites.  I saw these and these picture frame coasters.  They are only $6.95 for a set of 6.  They make them for baby pictures and wedding pictures.
Also, you can make some really cute coasters yourself out of ceramic tile and either some felt pads or cork sheets.  And to personalize it you can decoupage a cute picture onto each tile.  Or put a picture of some words as a background on each tile and then stamp the recipients initials on each tile...then varnish over them. And if you want an easier way to create your own, you can purchase photo transfers sheets that are made to transfer to tile.  Here are a few pictures of some crafted tiles
Plus, if you make them yourself, you can personalize the wrapping too with a cute ribbon.  What do you all think?
