Tea-cup candles are a great two-in-one gift: once the candle burns out, the tea cup can be used as normal (after a good wash, of course!). Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil for a scented candle.

Aren’t these fab? Hit your local market for some inexpensive yet beautiful fabrics: I think they’d look especially lovely in African Wax fabrics.

And if you have any fabric left over, how about a co-ordinated make-up bag:

So there you have it: something for (almost) everyone.
