6 gifts for him under $2

With the holiday season approaching we are in need of getting those perfect gifts for our men. But who said those gifts have to cost us a fortune?! Today I am going to share a few gift ideas that will cost you less than $2! Some of these could be great stocking stuffers while others could be the main gift! So lets just get straight to the goodness!

1)      7 Days of Love- This is great for words of affirmations guys.

2)      I love you because- I used an old frame that was laying around. You can also get one at the dollar tree.

3)      Make him a scarf- Use shirts from his favorite sports team or races that he has completed. You could even do one of camo. Using shirts that are just hanging around the house make the cost very low.

4)      Bookmark- Recently look into new paint? Use those paint chip samples for some good.

5)      Ornament- Look up on Pinterest homemade ornament. There are a lot to choose from! We don’t drink wine, but I had a huge bag of plain corks so I made these for free. (Side note: Each year after Christmas I get an ornament for Ryan’s stocking for the next year that is way cheap on after Christmas sales.)
