The only thing I like less than opening gifts in front of a crowd is watching someone else open my gift. What if they hate it?
Does she really want more socks, soap and scarves? Nope.
Spending more doesn't equal a better gift or a happier recipient. It's quality that counts.
Because not only do we have lots of family and friends to shop for at Christmas, but there's also the girls' teachers and even bus driver to consider. She's great!
It sure adds up fast. It also forces Tom and I to be frugal shoppers so we can show more cheer.
So here's 15 gifts for under $15 that just about anyone would rave over.
How can I be so sure? Because I've personally tested and tried all products on this list to my complete and utter satisfaction.
A quality pink Himalayan salt & pepper grinder set
Power pins push pins magnets, fridge magnets
A girly tape measure
Ice Chips Candy
Plus, they come in tins. Candy the old-fashioned way. The pack in the picture is $13.90 but Amazon does feature various deals.
Some variety packs come in a 6-pack for about $21.00. You can split them up, too! At that price, I can afford to give one to each of the girls teachers at $3.50 each. (With a coffee gift card of course).
Ice Chips satisfy your sugar cravings and sweet tooth minus the sugar!
Spices & seasonings
A high-end bottle of olive oil, vanilla or vanilla beans!
What can I say? I like to know what time it is. There's so much on my plate that I have to budget my time carefully. The only way I can do that is being aware of the time.
There's dinner to make, laundry to do, appointments to get to, a garden to wrap up and then kids getting on and off the bus. Never do I want to be late!
Most homes only seem to have one clock, if that. Personally, a clock in every room is kind of nifty. And clocks don't have to be expensive. You can pick up cheap ones for $5-$10 at any drug store. Ikea has super cute ones at reasonable prices.
Doormats welcome visitors to your home and many times are the first impression they get of your dwelling. Why not have an inviting one that is pretty?
Target always has a nice selection of doormats for $12.99. Makes me think I can get a new one every year and not go broke! ALDI'S is another great place to look.
Actually, I like to switch out my doormats so I always have a festive one for each holiday.
And the queen was delighted!
So have you heard of Yellies? What about Wrapples? I'm in the midst of deciding if I'm going to get one or both for my daughters this year.
Probably I'll end of buying both from Walmart at $14.99 each. Then I'll just have to add the whopping pack of 30 rolls of Scott toilet paper for free shipping to apply.
Toys are fun. And not just for kids as the Queen rightly proves!
Speaking of the Queen, does anyone know if "The Crown" will ever be back on?!?
