If you’re looking to save a little money on gifts this holiday season, these cheap Christmas gifts from the Dollar Store are going to be so refreshing for your wallet!
Not only are these cute DIY gifts inexpensive, but assembly is a breeze. This is why I absolutely love them for last minute gifts or people you forgot about eeek…they’ll never know!
Also, I say they’re DIY because you put them all together (yes you will fill like a Christmas elf), but they couldn’t be easier. No paint or glue gun required…now that’s my type of DIY!
Cheap Christmas Gifts
Mugs are always a great cheap gift idea because everyone can always use a mug for something. Best of all these mugs stuffed with goodies are all under $5. If I’m being truthful, they’re actually under $4, but somehow and odd number sounded better, hah.
These cheap DIY Christmas gifts from the Dollar Tree make a great quick gift for co-workers, friends, teacher or hostess gifts etc. Since they are so cheap, they would be also be cute party favors at your next holiday party!
For some of these gifts the more you make, the cheaper they become a piece. For example, I stuffed one mug with candy canes and hot cocoa, this is enough to make two or three mugs.
Now this isn’t like some other posts I’ve seen, all these items actually come from the Dollar Store! With the exception of one ribbon scrap I found laying around, but everything else I adorned the mugs with came from the Dollar Store.
Adding ribbon to the mugs makes them so cute, you don’t even have to wrap them if you don’t want to. And this my friends, will be the ultimate time saver for you. Wrap in ribbon or add some fun bells or ornaments and you are good to go!
Just a couple other pointers for you:
- All the mugs are solid colors, except for the snowman mug. You could go with a holiday mug, but I also like the idea of going with a festive solid color mug and decorating it with ribbon to make it feel like Christmas. That way the recipient can use these year around
- To affix the ribbon around some of these mugs, I didn’t use anything fancy, just regular scotch tape. You could tie the ribbon to make a cute bow.
- I placed tissue paper at the bottom of the mugs. This way you’re recipients will be able to see all their goodies. If you want them to be more of a surprise, wrap them in tissue paper or a cellophane bag and ribbon.
