Gifts for the M Family

Here are a few more gifts that I sent off to friends this holiday season. This family has a big sister and a little brother.
For big sister, a tote bag! I could just see her packing a few things into this tote and heading to the park to read under a tree.

And for little brother, a travel checkers set! I thought up this checkers board when I was brainstorming boy gift ideas, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Here’s the back of the board:

The checkers are simply wooden discs that I bought from JoAnn’s. I left half of them unfinished and I painted and sealed the other half. A simple draw-string pouch for storing the game, and I think I’ve found a new go-to boy gift!
