I'll be up front with you: this is a Pinterest based post.
I thought it would be fun to recap some of the fun things I've seen and tried lately from Pinterest that I think are amazing. It might give you some fun ideas to do yourself (if the time presents itself).
Here are my top 5 recent Pinterest experiences:
Dana's Mexican Bean Wonton Cups

Circle Zip Earbud Pouch
I made a handful of these for my mom. She gave them out to her "Slot Slut" friends - a group of ladies she goes to the casino with. They clip them on lanyards and keep their IDs and money in them. They turned out really cute and they're fun and easy to make. They don't require a whole lot of material so if you have scraps or even some fat quarters you'd be able to make a few of these. It's also a great project if you have a fear of zippers. Here is the tutorial that I followed. [FYI - I enlarged the pattern a little bit so that the pouches would fit IDs, credit cards, etc...]
