I don’t typically shop for other people’s gifts at the thrift store! I may be thrifty and frugal – always looking for the best deal – but I’m not cheap! However, once in a while I DO find something at a thrift shop that I can use for a thoughtful gift! And today was one of those days! I spotted this Debbie Mumm Holiday Card gift set BRAND NEW in box for $1.99!! The price tag on the box said $24.99!!
The outer plastic packaging was a bit beat up so I took it off, and will wrap this beautiful box in wintery blue tissue paper and silver ribbons as a teacher gift.
Inside are brand new (beautiful!) holiday cards. A great idea for a teacher who wants to write little thank you notes to her students for holiday wishes or Christmas gifts! If you do gift from a thrift store as you can see from the beautiful box above it doesn’t have to look used or be trashy – if you scout around and keep your eyes peeled you can find beautiful things to re-gift at a fraction of the price. This is how our family is able to bless others with Christmas gifts that we wouldn’t normally be able to give. For $1.99 it sure beats another Christmas mug!! (Now let’s hope this teacher doesn’t look at my blog!!!)
