For colleagues, I always try to go for something small and preferably quick/easy to make, but useful. This year, I had decided to go with zippered pouches. They're useful for whatever you want to hide in there, but they're cute and easy to customize. In this case, I had intended to mostly use the pawprint prints - on white and black. But I had scraps from other projects that went well with certain people - The Walking Dead, tie-dyed peace signs, animals in carrier, dog yoga, and garden peppers. All are lined with broadcloth in solid colors, and all have matching or coordinating zippers. I also added a homemade granola bar (in a plastic bag) in each one.
These seemed to go over well, which is good!
