Easy Gifts from the Dollar Spot

Thanks so much for all the kind comments on our new wall color yesterday! I can’t wait for the projects that come from that room! And as luck would have it, Sherwin Williams is having one of their 40% off all paint and stain sales this weekend. I plan to paint a few other rooms, but haven’t decided on colors yet. So I’ll buy the base paint (right off the shelf) during the sale, then take them back for free tinting at a later date. Just a little nugget for you…so stock up!

Last weekend, Babygirl went to a birthday party celebrating her favorite twins. Kids can be hard to buy for if you don’t know what they’re in to. And even if you do, it’s likely to change by next week. So I assembled personalized gifts with an assortment of goodies any child would love to receive.

First stop was to hit up Target’s Dollar Spot for these tote buckets…and get Mr. Sugarplum to work his letter magic (like he did here).


I raided the Dollar Spot for more treats and fun stuff, and the Back-to-School aisle for a few artistic items.


Then I assembled everything in the buckets by height.


Goodies are on both sides, and look cute from either direction.


To wrap, I placed each in a clear sack and tied a tag to the top with ribbon. Cards are so expensive, so I keep an assortment of colorful tags on hand instead.


An inexpensive gift that’s fun to give and receive! What’s your favorite go-to children’s gift?
