Default Need Ideas for Gifts for My Girlfriends

Hi all. I am looking for cute ideas to make for a few of my girlfriends as small gifts. We'll be getting together soon and I'd like to give them something special but I'm out of ideas right now as what to make for them. I'm thinking of perhaps a small cosmetic bag, but what other ideas do you have that would be cute and special? Thanks.

I made a cell phone "pillow" for several of my friends. It came from U-tube - SewVeryEasy. I was fun and quick and they really got a kick out of them. Fun to do in novelty prints for sure.

I received 4 coasters from a quilting friend and use them all the time. They are easy to make and so appreciated the gift so much.

I like tote/shopping bags that can be used instead of plastic bags. You could appliqué something on the sides to customize them and make them special.

Or big floppy sun hats? Or flannel pajamas?

Cosmetic bags would be a great gift for your girlfriends! There was a "snap bag" style cosmetic bag tutorial on here some time ago that makes up really cute and it is pretty easy to make up.

Everyone I have given these to have loved them. I use theme fabric. My grandaughter loves it to hold her chargers and ear buds when traveling. Find a theme fabric for each friend and put in an item of that theme.

Somewhat depends on your definition of "small" gifts!
**ditto** to the above

Adding ....
* the little credit card holder wallets that will hold several cards
* table runner
* door quilt or mini wall quilt

If they happen to be sewists ...
* lanyards ... I put itty-bitty scissors on the hook and and a pincushion on the lanyard. Sometimes I add a magnet to grab needles or pins without putting into the cushion. (leave plain for the non-sewers)
* pin cushion(s)

Cosmetic bags, tissue holders, cell phone/tablet holders, pillow cases. There's lots of stuff out there that can be made fairly cheaply and fairly easily.
