How about the latest idea - Biscornus.

Martine - mops - gave us a beautiful design in DBC today and they would take very little time to make.
You could personalise them with some lettering on the back, like 'To .... from Gayle', or with their initials.

Just an idea but pin cushions are ever useful.

I find that people just love things with their names on - whatever you decide to make. Have a great time with your school friends.

You can purchase some inexpensive tote bags at craft or sewing shops and put their initial on them. I have found they are a big hit as gifts. I mainly just use the person's first name initial so it is more personal.

You could put there name on a towel to keep in the car. Most people love that.

Oh thanks for asking I got some ideas for gifts too. I plan to make pin cushions for all my friends. Then they can think of me. Everyone can use a pin cushion...even if they don't sew....you can put safety pin or just a needle and thread for a button.

wow I had better watch my spelling. Can't believe I did this magnets should have been spelled this way.

I think a small embroidered bag to hold scents (popourri), such as cinnamon, lavender, etc., tied with a pretty ribbon, would make a nice small gift. A small bag personalized and filled with sweet smelling soaps is a wonderful gift. Wrap in tissue, place in small gift box. Such a pleasant fragrance when opened!

All great ideas. Here are a couple more - USB/Thumb Drive/chapstick holder as a key fob, monogramed cloth hankies. Or instead of monograms, you could use a design that would remind them of the Friendship you all share. If they are wine drinkers, you could make little charms for their wine glasses. The possibilities are endless, aren't they?! Good luck, and please show us what you finally decide to do. Thanks.

If you make fsl earrings. The Easter set sews out beautifully or you could do one of the FC Doilies or any fsl that could be hung in their kitchen window. You've got a lot to choose from.
Cutes has some extremely talented folks.
Have a good time!

The ideas suggested are great. Key chain, tissue holder, kitchen towel, all ideas that anybody could use. For younger kids my kids also like the bookmark idea and personalized pillows.

I am not sure if they wear glasses or not, but glass cases are great. I agree with Sue too about the tissue case. Also what about an FSL Angel, or Christmas decoration for their tree, that is assuming they believe in Christmas. You could also make applique flowers and put magnets behind them and they could be used on their fridge to hold things etc. I personally love little tea towels with designs on them, or even hand towels for your bathrooms. Maybe even something from your old schooldays. Or how about a cheque book holder or credit card holder?

Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

Love and blessings Chris

How about some covers for "kleenex" paper hankies to put in your handbag. Or some key forbs with their initials.
Hope you find a good idea that fits in to your time plans.
