You know when you have something like a birthday dinner to go to, but you don't buy gifts for each other, but still feel like you have to take something?

What about a cupcake?

On Saturday evening we were going out for dinner with 4 other couples and it was for 3 of the girls birthdays...
I think a nice small gesture is always nice.
So what should I do?
Macaroons? - Um... I might live within walking distance of the best Adriano Zumbo macaroons in the world! (well maybe Sydney) but I am not going to line up for an hour to buy them.
Off to the cupcake factory!

And when I told the guy there what they were for this is what we ended up with!

Individually boxed and cased in tissue paper cupcakes!
There was a blue one too, but I couldn't get a good photo of it.
For a grand total of $10.50 for the 3 I was extremely pleased!
And they were very much appreciated too!

What a great token gift idea! 

Yes, I know I could have baked them myself.... But they would never have looked this good!

What other ideas do you have for token gift ideas?
I might be needing some more soon!


  1. Gorgeous 'token' gifts. Pretty little things are always appreciated ... a MOR lip balm or anything from their Target range are my go to at the moment. x

  2. Oh such a cute idea to take the cupcakes. They look great!

    I love to give candles or any sort of pampering type item. I also make my own soap, so I tend to give heaps of those away....

  3. You can't get much more perfect, gorg lil cupcake gift! I agree with Leah, candles, eps Glasshouse are my go to gift!

  4. Yum!!

    Food is pretty good as a small token gift - or a bottle of wine. I often like to give tickets to things I know the person would like as gifts.

  5. These cupcakes are great! We had them at our engagement party and everyone loved them!
    I now get them as my standard 'token' gift!


Thanks for popping by!
