I posted on the Crafty Corner page a super cute sewing kit I made from altering a cigar box. I used scrapbook paper and some other things and created a very nice very practical gift for a new bride starting out her new married life.
If you are looking for gift ideas this is one that is easy to do, and almost guaranteed not to be a duplicate gift then this is it! I tried to think back to when I was a new bride and what I had that I did not use, and what I needed and did not have. A sewing kit was one of the things that I needed but did not have. Who thinks of sewing stuff??!! I do hope that this comes in handy for her and one day she will look back as she is reaching into it for a needle and thread and say 'Hey this was a pretty cool gift! Very handy!' :o) An old cigar box turned into a cute sewing box. Go check it out!
