No crafting skills necessary for this clever gift idea. Just hot glue Scrabble tiles onto twine and spell out your friend's name. You can put it on the outside of your gift as a tag and they can take it home and hang it on the tree as an ornament. This is a good gift idea for someone in the office as well.

Scrabble Mug and Thermos

This mug is dishwasher and microwave safe and has alphabet and bonus Scrabble tiles along the outside. The thermos holds 17 ounces and features a "beverage-themed Scrabble board in mid-play." The thermos is $29.95 and the mug is $13.95 from Basbleu.com.

Scrabble Tea Towel

This fun towel is perfect for setting out during game night or just giving to a Scrabble-loving friend along with a smaller gift. You could even use it to wrap your present in a clever way.

Scrabble Pillows

Let your friend show off their word nerd prowess by getting them these pillows made to look like Scrabble tiles. They are the perfect element for a game or family room, and instantly become a conversation piece at parties.

Lawn Scrabble

A totally fun way to bring Scrabble outside. This project makes an 8-foot Scrabble board with game pieces that you can play in the backyard. The board was created "from 225 pavers laid in a bed of sand," according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The tiles were made using wood plaques from the craft store. Finally, old shelves were used as the rack to keep the tiles.

Giant Scrabble Tiles

You can use giant Scrabble tiles to spell out something on your walls, or as a clever way to spell your family's name in portrait. This method uses boards, freezer paper, paint, and a computer program. The process takes some time but is easy enough to accomplish.

Scrabble Tile Ornament With Stand

Use as much of your Scrabble set as you can with this idea. You'll use Scrabble tiles to spell out someone's name, then glue them to the game piece stand and trim each one to neatly fit the name. Add a ribbon to the top and you've got a homemade ornament.

Recycled Scrabble Tile Necklaces

Terra Trendz repurposes old Scrabble tiles into unique pendant necklaces. The pendants are decorated with a variety of designs and come on a silver-plated chain. Priced at $13.99.

Custom Message Picture

You can make a completely unique picture for your friend using Scrabble tiles, a photo frame, and matting. Put a short phrase over a favorite photo or just use funky papers and create a fun message your friend will really appreciate.

Scrabble Coasters

Spell out a fun message on coasters that you make using Scrabble tiles. Glue onto cork (which you can get a craft supply store) and then spray with sealant to finish. Each coaster can have a different message.

Scrabble Wall Art

Spell out the names of your family members using oversized Scrabble letters and placing them strategically on your wall. This makes a nice for a family member who loves Scrabble, or just enjoys a unique piece of wall art.

Or, if you can find or make large Scrabble letters, you can always repurpose your old game into a similar type of artwork.

If you're really crafty, though, you might want to try this completely off the wall (literally) piece that takes Scrabble tiles to a whole new level.

Scrabble Christmas Tree Table Decoration

This project reuses a board to create a Christmas tree table top display. You'll need some tools and a creative spirit for this project, but it's sure to be a conversation piece with your friends.
