Need a quick gift for a teacher or coworker? Maybe you're stumped on what to get for that white elephant gift exchange? Look no further! I have some great ideas that are my yearly go-to for those times when you're just not sure what to give. Best part? They're all $15 or less!
one // If you love Chick-fil-a as much as I do (and you should), you'll probably already know about their amazing Calendar Cards that come out every year. With the purchase of one of their witty cow calendars, you receive a "calendar card" that offers you a free deal every month. These deals range from free sodas and milkshakes to a free sandwich! No purchase necessary, but we always like to support our favorite restaurant, so we will often purchase something to go with our freebie (if it's a free sandwich, we buy fries and a drink; free fries and a drink, we buy a sandwich). You'll even get the chance to vote for a favorite deal, whose winner will be the freebie in a following month. A calendar card + a gift card would make a great year-long gift for any foodie!
Chick-fil-a Calendar Card, $7 + Chick-fil-a Gift Card, $5 = $12 (both available in stores)
two // A monogram mug and some gourmet hot cocoa make a great gift for a teacher or colleague! Don't know who might get your gift? Grab a cute, festive mug with a fun saying or pattern instead.
three // Another perfect gift for a teacher or round robin party! Bath & Body Works minis are the best for on-the-go and they come with tons of scents and options. Winter Candy Apple is one of their best-selling scents every year, so it's sure to be a hit for any recipient. Another gift from BBW I always love for teachers is a full size hand sanitizer and matching lotion. It's the perfect desk accessory!
Winter Candy Apple Hand Cream, $5 + Winter Candy Apple Pocketbac, $1.75 (or 5 for $5!) + Glitter Pocketbac Holder, $3.50 = $10.25
four // This is one of my favorite gift ideas for a co-ed party! Men are so hard to buy for when you do know them, so it's even trickier when you're not sure who's going to end up with your gift! I've never met a man who wants Bath & Body Works goodies, so a DIY movie night kit is a great way to go! I've made this into a family gift by using a 2-liter soda, individual microwave popcorn packets, and a movie rental or DVD.
20 oz Soda, $1.50 + Chips or Popcorn, $2.50 + Redbox Gift Certificate, $5 = $9
five // A cute festive oven mitt and DIY cookie mix makes a thoughtful, personal gift on a budget. I've seen tons of fun recipes and free printables all over Pinterest that would make this cookie in a jar gift a breeze, and relatively free!
Snowflake Oven Mitt, $6 + DIY Cookie Mix, FREE = $6
*So I lied! I thought some of these things would reach around $15 total, but they are all under $12! Even better!*
