Holidays, birthdays, and celebrates have been causing our money to pour from between our fingers. Of course, I still want to get family and friends gifts and celebrate with them. But there has to be a less expensive way.
After searching many websites and Pinterest (of course), I have found many many ways to save money when it comes to gift giving.
Today I tested my techniques by making a gift for my sister-in-law. I will not list the amount I spent but I will say that I saved myself $45.00. She likes socks and I found a pair of nice fuzzy ones that looked very comfy. After getting the socks, I decided the theme would be feet. Yes, I know, an odd theme but it seemed to work out nicely.
Shower foot scrubber
Nail files and clipper
and... to top it all off a national bestseller book titled.... "BAREFOOT"
I added two cards made from card stock, free printables, and cut outs from some scrapbook pages I had.... I wrote "Feet in the Sand" on one and "Happy Birthday" on the other.
Other ideas for this basket could include:
Additional pairs of socks
Gift certificate for a pedi
