For the next 5 days I am going to share my ideas for easy DIY  PTY ( Put Together Yourself) gifts that you can make in an bind. Did you forget your boss? Have a friend you weren't expecting to give you a gift and can't help but feel you need to reciprocate? Well hold tight because I have some great ideas for you and everything you need is available from plain jane grocery, big box and yes even drug stores! Oh and your kids can absolutely be your worker elves for all of these.

First Up...

Last Minute Gift For The Business Traveller!

I don't know about you but everyone I know seem to be travelling a lot more for work these days. Even friends who work from home are off to meetings here there and everywhere so this gift will probably work for someone you know.

Where you need to go :

Drugstore.

What you need to get :

A Make Up bag for a woman, a shaving kit for a man.

What you need to fill it with :

All the fun travel size toiletries - let your kids help choose what to put in. Most cost between $1-$3 dollars each.

Bonus : A Starbucks Gift Card. I don't know about you but I haven't been to an airport in years that didn't have at least one Starbucks!  You can even pick up pre-loaded gift cards at most drug stores.
