Quick, Easy and Thrifty Gift Idea

Happy Tuesday my friends, the very last week of March and it's been one long month! Looking ahead to Spring and a bunch of Spring birthdays, Mothers Day and more. I usually hit my local Dollar Tree for wrapping paper and party supplies. You can literally get some of the same things you get at your local party store for a dollar each! If I'm getting generic things that are going to be thrown away anyway, why pay more? 
A couple weeks ago I headed there for some green/white items for St Patrick's Day and came across these pretty bars of soap. I decided to give them a try and was pretty impressed with them so I decided to share with you. At only a dollar a bar, I thought these would make a pretty addition to a guest bathroom, Easter basket stuffer, Mother's Day or Teacher's gift. I'm not suggesting you want to cheap out on those occasions, but this is a pretty and very economical way to present a gift. Thinking of gifting a bar, with a sponge and coffee card for teacher appreciation week. What I love about this soap, is that they're solid, heavy duty bars that don't disintegrate after one use. They're also paraben free, free of colors, made in the USA and are wonderfully scented - not overpowering or fake, just pretty and subtle. I grabbed Lemon Verbena and Mint, Lavender Chamomile, Oatmeal Coconut and Shea Butter. 
They also had these heavy duty Bath & Body Sponges for a dollar. They are soft and feel substantial, win-win! 
Hope you have a great day!
