Cheap, Yet Cute and Thoughtful Gift Ideas

Since it seems as though most people are on a budget now-a-days, or at least trying to watch their spending, I thought it might be fun to show case some ideas that are both cute and cheap. First of all, how stinkin' cute are these Scrabble Tile Pendants? I want to make some for my daughters and myself. Next time I head to town, I plan to check the thrift store.

Wool Felted Soap. I know it has nothing to do with anything, but hey I thought it might make for a fun summer project or maybe even a teacher gift?? I know don't...just thought the idea looks cute and fun. The tutorial is found on Little Birdie Secrets.

This super cute, homemade charm bracelet from Studio 5. It's made from Shrinky Dinks (remember those as a kid?) Check out the link to see how to do it.

These cute washer necklaces. There is a video tutorial you can watch here.


The Very Hungry Caterpillar from A Wednesday Afternoon. This project seems perfect for a preschool or kindergarten teacher.

There are more ideas to come, but I am too tired to try listing any more tonight. For now...happy crafting!

These are amazing ideas! I would be in-charge for the corporate give-aways, so I would usually get personalized gift mugs from http://www.images-n-stuff.com/photogifts.html. The co-workers loved it of course because it was unique and useful. I am still looking around for more ideas and when I saw yours, I'd really have to say they are creative
