I love beautiful things that you can make while spending almost nothing. I have made many of these for myself, they also make great gifts! Usually, a bouquet of flowers is around $20.00 and wilts within the week, these cost a fraction, and last till the ink runs dry. A beautiful gift that requires no crafting skills at all.:)

Fast and Easy flower pens make a wonderful gift and pretty package decorations.

If you have a large group to give to (and they are of an age to be allowed the use of ink pens), I suggest the capped ink pens with the clear barrels. What you do is find a pretty and very busy picture in a magazine (I like to use Oriental Trading). Cut the picture out, open the pen by pulling the ink out, roll the picture around the ink container and reinsert to pen. Put the cap back on and voila! You have a gift that costs less than 10 cents each!
When I deck out an ink pen, I need a place to stand them up to dry. I place the round ribbon roll in a plastic cup. In the small hole on the ribbon roll, I place the pen where it could stand up to dry.
