Do you LOVE Christmas shopping, but HATE having to spend that extra money on the actual gift wrapping?? On top of all the cost of actually buying the gifts, sometimes you end up spending an extra $5 on the wrapping. Once you buy the bag, bow, and tissue paper you’ve already spent $4-5. Then multiply that times however many gifts you’ve bought! Man… that can really add up!

Today I want to show you how I cut that cost in half when I wrapped my Christmas gifts. And yes, every single gift wrapping item was bought from the Dollar Store. I promise though, you would NEVER know it! I have managed to create a classy and elegant look on the CHEAP.


Each individual gift ended up costing about an average of $2 (or less). The bags were .50 cents each because they came in a pack of 2. I only bought one bouquet of flowers, so that was just $1. The single bouquet was divided amongst 2 gifts, but could easily have been divided amongst 3 or 4. My favorite part is the ornament. They are SO pretty and come in a pack of 2, which means they are .50 cents each. They also act as part of the gift which is really fun. I also really love the bows I found. They came in packs of 2, so they were .50 cents each as well.






And of course Bailey had to make her presence known… As usual;)


So what do you all think? Not very Dollar Store”ish”, huh?

  1. Very pretty. I always see bows and embellishments on bags but never think to do it myself. That pretty stuff adds up.
