1. Decorative Mirror
Choose a circular piece of mirror from a nearby glassware shop (use a spare one if you have one at home) and fit it on a firm cardboard base. Decorate it with cut curves from plastic spoons and using spray metallic paint (extra glossy golden) or any simple acrylic paint, color the plastic shells. It will look like seashells or opening flower petals inside which your mirror will lie inlaid.
2. Scented Candles
Making scented candles is actually pretty easy. All you have to do is melt some wax and infuse it with a drop of any essential oil and maybe some food coloring. You can choose to use any type of mould or base like you can get candles with beautiful shapes if you use wine glasses or tumblers that you don’t use anymore. You will also be able to make organic candles by pouring the melted wax unto rounded orange peels.

This may be done with ordinary materials to be found at a stationary shop too. You just have to be a little creative about what you have in mind.
A Coaster will be a thoughtful gift. It will protect her table tops whenever she’ll have a hot or chilled drink, and being constantly used, will keep reminding her of you. Visit a craft or stationery shop and buy some foam/spongy material and using a little creativity, you’ll be able to make table coasters from scrap material that you will easily find at your home.
5. Flower Bouquets
Making use of Crepe paper easily available at your nearby stationery shop, make her a bouquet of origami flowers.
