Last-Minute Gift Ideas $5-$10

I wanted to share a few last-minute gift ideas that are inexpensive, useful, easy to find, and quick to pull together!!!

Soup Mugs and Soup Mix - about $6.00-$7.00 (I paid $5.50)
I gave a set of soup containers and my fave Bear Creek Chicken Noodle Soup to all the ladies at the office where I get my allergy shots.  It was a hit!!! They loved it!!  Originally I was going to purchase these soup mugs from Target for $6.99...until I found some at Dollar Tree for $1.00!!!! They had pink, blue, and green, and from what I could tell, they are a pretty good quality (I hope so, at least!!!). You could also use ceramic ones and any soup of your choice, of course!

Gift Cards - $5.00 or $10.00
When in doubt, just get a GIFT CARD!!!!!!  Our local Kroger grocery store had Amazon gift cards in 3-packs of $10.00.  These were great for the bus driver, dance teacher, and gym/art teachers!  You can purchase Starbucks cards in almost any increment.  I used to feel silly giving gift cards because the person would know how much I spent.  But now, I don't care!!!!  They can get what they want and it's so easy!!!

Bath & Body Works Hand Soaps - $2.50-$5.00
I find that the hand soaps are better than lotion or other bath products because the scent isn't too strong, so you can't go wrong with any of the options. Also, unlike lotions, they will actually get used up to the end!!!  I often throw away old body sprays and other products like that because I have half the bottle left a couple years later. It goes bad and has to be trashed. Not the case with the soaps!!

Any kind of Kits - $2.00-$10.00
Any little kits full of useful items are always appreciated! You can put them together yourself!
1-Purse Kit: A cute zipper pouch or pencil case filled with mints, gum, and chocolates
2-Car Kit: A plastic shoebox filled with wipes, snacks, nail files, tissues, etc. 
3-Mom Kit: A clear zipper bag with Band-Aids, Neosporin, Tylenol, hand sanitizer, Shout wipes, floss, disposable toothbrushes, etc.
4-Craft Kit: A photo box filled with glitter, washi tape, gel pens, stickers, note cards, etc.
5-Baking Kit: A loaf pan filled with the dry ingredients for pumpkin bread or banana bread

 Hope this helps with your last-minute shopping!!!
