I love gifts that are quick, easy and thoughtful. The dollar store has so many great items for these types of gifts. This month for Pretty Projects Pretty Pairs, Sky from Capital B and I put together dollar store Christmas gift ideas. These are two gifts well under $10 that are easy to throw together and come with a bonus printable tag.
I love getting together with Sky (she has the cutest little boys). We had lots of fun searching our local dollar store for some great finds. We both found some great mugs and funky ornaments to decorate our gifts.
Here is what I used in my Hot Cocoa Gift:
- hot cocoa packets
- peppermint sticks
- glittery ornament
- baker’s twine
- printable tag
- cute straws if you want an extra special touch
Arrange the items in the mug and tie the tag on with baker’s twine. The ornament can be tied on with the tag or stuck in the mug. Mine was this adorable reindeer and I thought he just looked great sticking out of the mug like he was flying away on Christmas Eve.
I love how easy it is to use printable tags. They are very versatile and free for you. Yes you! I love my readers and want to give you a little something for Christmas!
You know I’d throw in a glittery reindeer any day. It complements the mug perfectly. Can you believe all this great stuff come from the dollar store?
The peppermint sticks are so good. I love to eat them. They can double as a mixing stick to give hot cocoa a great peppermint flavor. Yum. I might just go mix myself up a mug of hot cocoa.
These gifts are a great idea for neighbors, teachers, friends, babysitters, anyone who you need a little gift for.
What would you stuff in a mug for a friend?
Here is what Sky stuffed her mug with:
