My best friend’s birthday is coming up and she’s turning 13 (no longer a twelvie!) and I wanted to give her something really special to show her how much I love her as a friend. This gift is really just a door of opportunity, you can make it whatever you want. My bestie loves the beach and being outdoors and is just a really bubbly, colourful girl, so I went with that kind of theme. You can also do this with a glass jar, just make sure all of your things fit!

What you decide to put into your vase depends on what your ‘present-receiver’s’ personality is like. Some of the things I put into my vase were:

  • Lollies  - she loves Nerds : )
  • Some small jewelry such as earrings and a friendship bracelet
  • Colourful motivational flags
  • Lip balm
  • A small memory book of printed out photos
  • A cute fish figurine because she loves all things ocean and beach
  • A mini chalkboard and chalk (only 5cm x 2cm)
  • Confetti made out of hole punch circles
  • Body spray
  • A small hanging wooden heart


I also filled the jar up with small decorative bits like:

  • A fake rose
  • Shells (for the beachy theme)
  • Ribbon
  • A feather
  • Buttons

To finish up, I wrapped it in a big piece of colourful scrap fabric I had lying around and tied it up with a ribbon.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. Firstly Ariel was fantastic she was so amazing with the kids could not recommend highly enough. The face painter was so incredible...looking at photos of the kids the day after couldn’t believe how amazing the paintings were. Would definitely use your company again. Tara B Sep 2021
