Here is my sister, Leslie, again with some cute, simple, easy gift ideas:
Are you still looking for inexpensive gift ideas for teachers or neighbors? These are some of the things I am going to give this year:
These word art picture frames are fun and super "cost effective" (that sounds so much better than cheap). I bought used picture frames from D.I. ($1-2 each) and gave them I fresh coat of paint. Then I printed the free prints found here and here.
Next up, neighbor gifts:
I've seen lots of cute ideas out there for reusing glass jars. I reused spaghetti sauce and pickle jars, and spray painted the lids black. The bases are Dollar Store candlesticks that I also painted black. You could fill them with all kinds of things. Pencils or crayons for teachers?
And one more idea to go along with a gift for my children's teachers, these initial notepads, journals and cards from the dollar section of Target:
I couldn't find a whole set for each initial I need, but I think they would be cute to add to one of the ideas above.
Hope your shopping is almost finished! Once I find Neil Diamond's Greatest Hits, I think I will have everything I need (Mom, don't tell Dad!)
Thank you, Leslie, fantastic ideas as usual! I'm going to start saving my glass jars now so I can do this next year (we don't use those very often, lol.) I'm so excited that Leslie and family is coming up to visit for Christmas! Yeah!! You're still coming right, Les? Tell Luke I published it so it's fact now. :)
