GIFTS THAT WON'T BREAK THE BANK

If you have a giving heart then these gifts are for you. They will allow you to show your appreciation and give a thoughtful, creative, gift without spending a ton of money (or buying a gift card). Each homemade gift you'll find here has to meet 5 stipulations in order to maximize your money and make it easy for a busy mom to do:

  1. Easy to obtain supplies –  Supplies you might already have on hand or can easily be found the same day you want to make it.
  2. Easy to make –  Supplies are easy to work with so you could do the craft with your kids.
  3. Quick to make –  Can be made in 30 minutes or less so it’s possible to make this gift in the middle of the night to give tomorrow.
  4. Cheap to make – You should be able to make each project without spending more than $10.
  5. Substantial – Each gift is “big” enough that you’ll feel confident giving it alone and not having to add a gift card to it.
