Last Minute Gift Giving
A trip to Big Lots 30% off closing sale prompted me to buy gifts for my sons two babysitters. He's only there for two half days a week so I didn't feel it was necessary to join in the gift card fund with the other parents. But, they do take good care of him so I thought small tokens of my appreciation were probably a nice thing to do.
I found Bigelow English Breakfast tea and packages of fancy chocolate tea biscuits to go with them for 1.10 apiece. I added a Christmas tea towel from the stack that I bought in bulk when K-Mart had them marked for .59. I attached a metal clearance cookie cutter (.12 and .32 each on clearance) to the ribbon on the package. Each gift ends up being around $3.00. I added a Christmas card with a thank you note.
And I think that is officially the last gift I should buy.
