I love giving little gifts to my kids’ teachers throughout the school year. I mean, they are with my kiddos more than I am during the week and I so appreciate everything they do. With 3 kiddos, “little” gifts can add up quick! But they don’t have to, especially if you plan WAY ahead. And I mean WAY ahead! Here is a quick little gift I just put together for Halloween.
Bags- bought a few weeks after Halloween last year when they were way on clearance at Hobby Lobby. Originally $1.99 for 10 bags. 75% off brings them to $.50 for 10 or $.05 each. I even have leftovers for next year.
Jack-o’-Lantern mercury glass candle holder with battery operated tea light- also purchased last year a few weeks after Halloween at my grocery store in the floral section. Originally $5.99 each. 80% off brings each to $1.20.
Candy- broke into our Halloween candy early to grab a few pieces for the teachers (and praying I can stay out of it until Halloween night!) Target had a one day sale on their app for 50% off their large bags of Halloween candy a few weeks ago and I took advantage. We typically get about 250 trick-or-treaters each Halloween so I stock up when I find a good deal. Costco also has great prices for large quantities of candy. Anyway, the candy was cheap!
So for less than $2.00 each, we are able to hopefully bring a smile to some of our favorite people. These would be great gifts for neighbors, co-workers, friends and family alike. Can’t wait to hunt for this year’s bargain Halloween gifts!
