House warming gift

A couple of guys from our small group bible study recently got a new apartment. They invited the gang over to help break in their new place. We have a tight gift giving budget. We only set aside money for Christmas and immediate family member's birthdays. So all other unexpected gift giving occasions have to be on the cheap and are typically homemade. I baked some brownies and snicker doodles and dressed them up with some scrap ribbon and a paper covered box. I raided our pantry for some extra items to round out the gift-some microwave popcorn and a can of air freshener seemed to do the trick. A quick hand stamped card completed the gift. This gift was made up of stuff I already had at home and in my pantry. I love it when I can create something without spending money.
