All you need is a bottle of nail polish and a plain white coffee mug. As a bonus you can add candy to the mug, place into a bag. Everything you can find at the Dollar Store. This is a great gift because each mug will be unique like the person receiving this gift!
DIY Succulent Mason Jar Gift
Found from Live Randomly Simple
I love succulents they are a great plant to give someone because it is so low maintenance. I found the mason jars at the Dollar Store and twine. I found the chalkboard paint and the chalkboard ink at a local craft store on sale. Bonus! So keep an eye out for that! I got a lot of use out of the paint and ink so it was worth the money for sure.

The best part about this DIY Gift is most the items to make the gifts with are from the grocery store, pantry staples. So turning everyday items into a gift your friends and family will definitely thank you for such a cute and relaxing gift.
Easy DIY Whiteboards

I think this is such a cute idea! Using a picture frame and repurposing it to create a useful gift. All by placing a piece of colorful paper inside and using dry erase markers for writing notes its transform into a whiteboard. So cool!
A Gift In a Tin: Movie Night in a Tin
Found from The DIY Mommy
Everything in this basket can be found at the Dollar Store. If you don’t want to use the gift card put a box of microwavable popcorn, drinks and boxes of candy or maybe adding a small blanket for cozy movie nights. This guide is a great starting off point!
DIY Bath Bombs with Epsom Salt
Found from The Makeup Dummy
I think Bath Bombs are a great gift. They are so easy to make and it doesn’t require any fancy tools. I actually used some chocolate candy molds to make fun shapes for the bath bombs. You can see how I used the candy molds in different ways for DIY Kids Crafts here.

I love hosting parties whether they are small or big, there is always food and one way to serve them is platters and stands. When I saw how Jen made this super cute stands from the Dollar Store I had to try it myself! It’s so inexpensive and makes a perfect hostess gift.
