Tis the Season
I'm so excited for Christmas, it truly is my favorite time of the year. If I had to choose between my birthday and Christmas, I would choose Christmas (obviously).
My family jokes if anyone could have Christmas all year round and not get sick of it, it would be me. (I think their right).
I love buying the perfect gift for the special people in my life, but I don't want to break the bank. I've come up with some fun and inexpensive gift ideas and thought I would share.
1. Pampering Gift Box.
-Next I headed to Bed Bath and Beyond and found this great cooling eye mask (what girl can't use one of those), originally $5.99 on sale for $1.98.
-What would a pampering gift be without some aromatherapy, so off to Bath and Body Works, 3 for $10 travel sizes (oh yeah!).
-Stuffing paper was purchased at the Dollar Tree you get 20 sheets, steal!
-While still in the money saving mode I recycled my Birchbox. I held on to a few of them knowing I would use them for Christmas presents. During this time I'm always trying to find a small box to put presents in, this year I was definitely prepared.
-Then I wrapped up my little recycled Birchbox and it's ready to go under the tree.
Grand Total: $5.98 not including tax
2. Christmas Movie Night Gift
One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is drink hot cocoa, eat popcorn, and watch a movie. Every year we have a Christmas party, with some kind of goofy contest and of course there's a prize. I think this will be one of them this year.
-The hot cocoa, Coal Candy (so funny), and thin mints were all from Dollar Tree
-The Life Savers Santa candy was $1.50 from Walmart
-The wrapped movie I got from Amazon, and of course it's Christmas themed was $7.00
Grand Total: $14.49 not including tax
What do you think; how would you put together a movie goodie bag?
3. The Stationary and little bit of everything Box
So for this third little gift I again recycled a Birchbox and I kind of borrowed their idea a bit.
-The adorable notebook and 'To Do' list I bought from Target for $1 each
-The L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick was from Target as well for $7.99 (was tempted to keep it, love the color).
-The Flower pack was $0.99
-Bath and Body Works Wall Flower in the scent Leaves $3.00
-Candy in the foil wrappers was from, can you guess, the Dollar Tree.
This is kind of like stocking stuff gifts, but in a box.
Grand Total: $13.98 not including tax
What fun budget friendly gifts have you come up with?
