Okay, gift-giving season is now in full swing. Teachers, friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and more – there may be a lot of people on your list. Here’s one super-simple DIY anyone can do and bonus, it’s pretty darn thoughtful too. It’s also quite easy and inexpensive. Keep this idea in your back pocket for the next time you’re in need of a cool gift on the cheap.

It’s personalized mugs thanks to the help of permanent markers. Judging from Pinterest, DIY Sharpie Mugs are a present idea you can do a lot with. Try a quote, a print, or even a cute drawing. Write a nickname or term of endearment. Sketch then bake to seal the deal.

Here are few designs to get you inspired. Pin now, craft later.
