Gifts on a Budget!

I've been loving all the holiday gorgeousness + gift guides out there on the blogosphere!  I've been a little less excited than usual about holiday shopping, so I've been hoping to find some fab inspiration to do something simple, and (beautifully) homemade ... too much to ask for :D?

Well, last week on CakeSpy, I saw *another* recipe for a cake-in-a-mug --  So then I got to thinking these might be the perfect gifts for the admin staff at the office!  What do y'all think?

A little of this:

or this

or this


and the dry goods + a note, saying "add egg + milk" -- maybe I can throw in a can of canned pumpkin? -- and voila!

From this:

I don't know, I feel like I'm either a genius or this is a terrible idea :D

I love the idea! I actually thought about something like that for favors. Do it!

Oh CRAZY! I've never heard of that before, but it sounds pretty awesome! Gotta make sure the mugs are oven-proof though, right? :D
