Dollar Store Ideas for Mom
I never used to shop at dollar stores for much more than maybe some cheap pens or pencils or maybe some wrapping paper, but now you can actually find some decent gift ideas when you shop at one. Do some careful searching and you may just be able to put together a nice, inexpensive gift for mom on Mother’s Day. You’ll get a lot more goodies for your money! You don’t have to fork over tons of money for a dozen roses or jewelry.
A recent article on Wallet Pop had these suggestions for unique Mother’s Day gifts. Put together some gift baskets or gift bags. The Dollar Tree also has these ideas:
Beach Mom: For this basket, just throw in some flip flops, a nice cool drink, sunblock, sunglasses, a beach towel and maybe a book or word puzzles. Consider adding some pretty fabric or tissue paper to the bottom of the basket to make it even prettier.
Crafty Mom: Find some glue, scissors, foam shapes, markers, pipe cleaners, glass beads and any other crafty items you can find. Sometimes you can also snag some scrapbooking items.
Chef Mom: Dollar stores always seem to have lots of kitchen gadgets and goodies. Throw some towels, kitchen utensils, kitchen timer, coupon organizer and maybe some cookie cutters into a basket to help her in the kitchen.
Gardner Mom: Find a big flower pot and add in some gardening gloves, flower seeds and pruners.
