Weddings are expensive there are not many ways to get around this, but there are ways to help cut costs where you can! Asking someone to be a big part of your special day by asking them to be a bridesmaid is a big deal, and you should make sure you thank them by getting them a gift to remember the day! Now that doesn’t mean you have to buy everyone $400 engraved necklaces (unless you can afford it, in which case that is awesome!). For my own wedding I got everyone little gift sets from Bath and Body Works in a Secret Wonderland scent which went perfectly with my Alice in Wonderland themed wedding. (It happened to be right around Christmas so I was able to get some great deals!). I wanted to share with you some cheap bridesmaid gifts under 10 so that you can show them you care, without spending a fortune!

Looking for an simple inexpensive back to school gifts for preschool teachers this year? Why not give them a gift of magic eraser cleaning sponges. The sponges are an excellent way to clean up stray crayon marks, dry paint that was missed during clean up, or marker ink that isn’t where it is supposed to be. If you order the sponges in bulk from sites like Amazon or spongeoutlet.com then it is really an inexpensive gift that will be VERY much appreciated especially if your little ones are in preschool or early elementary. All you do is tie together a few sponges with some ribbon or colored masking tape and attach a little note such as “Magic erasers for you…because the only marks my child leaves behind should be on your heart.” Easy, simple, inexpensive and you will be the new teacher’s pet.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Dollar Tree but all ideas and words here are 100% mine.
If you follow my site you know I started a 30 day challenge to do kind deeds. This post is sponsored by the Dollar Tree. They allowed me to make a couple of buckets for some very special people most of which I have never met. Where else but the Dollar Tree Could you find gifts for anyone? I had a goal to make gift baskets for the places that my children would visit when they volunteered in their community.
I decided to make my first basket for their teachers. It is a nice way to thank their teachers. You can see that $10 goes a long way. Dollar Tree has a great section for teaching supplies. I got things for their desks and things for the children to use while playing games. I even got a trashcan because with tons of children you can’t have enough of those.
This bucket was created for the Volunteer fire department and the EMTS that serve our community. Dollar Tree has lots of cleaning supplies, I figured those will be perfect. I love to drop off useful treats.
This is my last and meaningful gift. It is for folks that we haven’t met but are currently living in a nursing home. It is a little something to let them know we are thinking of them. We will be grateful to share the day with them and we hope to leave them with a couple of items to remind them that we have been there.
As you can see for just $10 a basket you can really change your entrance by presenting a great gift. I love Dollar Tree it is the place we shop for our household needs and for the people we like to make happy. Just remember being kind counts and thank you Dollar Tree for understanding, it is the thought that counts.
