Annie’s Simple Life invited me to participate in this collab video to share some easy holiday gift ideas that don’t break the bank.  How nerdy is it that I get giddy when I see these types of videos pop up in my subscription feed?  They never get old!


One element that always guides my gift-crafting is: would I like to receive this gift?  Sometimes “cheap” has the assumption of “tacky.”  These are two gifts that we love and use at home, and they are extremely budget-conscious.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi I left a comment on yt but I wanna make sure you get this… I use those air freshner all the time here is a link for more scents and different ways to use them like in a crockpot or on a candle warmer… she also preps them in a jar with the water then stores them in her refrigerator up to two weeks…. so they are ready for her to use at any given moment:)

    Hope u don’t think I’m taking your thunder away or anything:)

  2. Thanks, Kathryn! My girls are in daycare, and the youngest has 5 regular teachers! I’m working on putting these together along with a nice note to each teacher…plus the dance teacher and physical therapist. I hope they enjoy it and appreciate a token of our appreciation.
