If you want everyone at the holiday party wishing your gift had their name on it, ditch traditional (and expensive) decorations such as bows and ribbons for this colorful, rustic gift-topper idea from Calypso Letters bloggers Johnie Gall (our lovely web editor) and Esther Choi. "This is a fun DIY that's easy to do and uses natural shells you can collect all summer long in anticipation of the gift-giving season," says the ultracreative duo. "Plus, you don't even need to invest in paint!"

Here, Choi and Gall show us how to bring a bit of the beach to the holidays.
