75+ Gift Ideas under $5

Are you ready for some more great gift ideas?

Yesterday I shared 75+ Handmade Gift Ideas made for under $2. Today I’m sharing 75+Handmade Gifts for under $5!! I wanted to make sure you had lots of options for gift ideas in case you wanted to go handmade this year. ;)

After doing these searches I’ve realized just how many AWESOME DIY gift ideas there are!! You could easily go handmade this year and spend under $50 (wouldn’t that be awesome?!) The hubby and I are trying to think of ways to show the kids that it isn’t all about the presents so we decided that for the gifts they give each other, they need to be handmade. We’ll definitely have to help them out with that but I think it’s a good start to not focusing so much on the toys. :)

Any way, I hope you love these gift ideas – they’re simple, cute and best part – INEXPENSIVE! :D
