#4 Holiday Gifts Under $5

I found the cutest little trinkets at Pier 1 Imports.  It's been quite a week and I'm so excited to be back on the blog writing about something fun.  Don't get me wrong, teaching fifth grade is often fun, but there is something about taking the time to write about organizing, shopping, and holidays that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  

The first on the list is a lollipop pen that lights up when you write!  

I spent the entire day cleaning and organizing...washing floors, raking the lawn, and rearranging furniture.  My hands have taken a beating.  Looks like a glove mask tonight...

The only bad news about these cute lollipop pens is that I don't want to give them away as gifts.  My students would go crazy if I whipped one of these out and began grading papers.  At $4 each, I may have to get a few to give as prizes to some of my teacher-created BINGO games.

There were some other fab finds at Pier 1 for my "under $5 hunt". 

The top, round bottle is anti-bacterial hand gel.  It's made with vitamin e and it smells so festive.  The piece of "wrapped candy" is lip gloss and the "mittens" are bubble bath.  So cute to add to the top of a gift, droop from a Christmas stocking, or tie around a wine glass stem as a party favor.  The ideas are endless! 

Remember... you don't have to go bankrupt to be jolly and festive.
