75+ Gift Ideas for Under $2

Christmas Time is always such a wonderful time, but it can also be a stressful time!

Can I get an “Amen!”?

Much of that stress is caused by gifts… whether it’s not knowing what to get someone or not having the money to buy presents for all the people you wanted to. Well, I have those same kinds of problems so over the last few months I’ve slowly been collecting awesome and inexpensive gift ideas and will be sharing them with you over the next few weeks. This first roundup is definitely one you’ll want to bookmark forever because all of these gifts can be made for about $2 or under. Yup. The inspiration is below my friend… just think “Dollar Store” along with some other supplies from home. Who knows… you may be able to make some of these for free if you have all the supplies on hand! ;)
