Gift Idea | Monsters University Mad!








Struggling to think of simple yet thoughtful gift ideas? Well I have an awesome solution for you. With my best friend Rachel being slightly obsessed with Monster University and Mike Wasowski I decided to go all out on the theme for her birthday.

I found super soft socks in Primark a few months back, they're perfect for a cosy night in watching the movie! Primark have lots of character themed nightwear in at the moment, so I'm sure you can find your favourite character in the bunch.

I wanted the rest of the gifts to tie in together, so I went to my favourite site of all - EBAY!! I love buying phone cases, as it is something that will be used everyday. There are thousands of options, especially for iphones, so all you need to do is find the perfect on to fit your theme. There were so many to choose from but I settled on a clear Mike Wasowski - she loved it!

Then finally for the last present I decided to bake some buns! Everyone loves cupcakes, so you can't go wrong with this one. I baked the buns myself using a simple sponge cake recipe, I added chocolate of course, then simply iced them using butter cream. Yummy! The great things about the cupcake toppers I found were that they're are so many to chose from. I think every possible theme is available on the wonderful site that is EBAY, and they're all not much more that a pound. I also found a box to put the buns in, you can buy boxes that hold 4, 6 and 12 cupcakes. The box is optional but I think it finishes it off perfectly.

These gifts were sooo simple and affordable and my Rachel  loved them so much! (her family also loved me for making so many). You can't go wrong with buying lots of items to do with their favourite thing! Plus I got to eat the leftover cupcake - result!
