Here's one easy peasy, but quite pretty (if you allow me to say so!) DIY. I found these small white trays at Home Sense (for $3) and immediately had the idea of doing this, I mean, who doesn't like monograms and gold? Kind of a no brainer if you ask me ;)
I just hand drew a "g" in pencil and then painted it with a gold leaf pen. The "a" was much easier as you can see. Time of execution: between 5-10 minutes. Cost: $3.50. Just make a pair of these, perhaps a polka dot one and a monogrammed one and you have one beautiful, affordable and personalized gift ;)
