Here is one idea:
West Elm Alphabet Mugs
$4 each on sale, with FREE shipping!
I can personally attest to the fact that these mugs are awesome! When I found them last spring for $4 each, I picked up several important family letters, and we have been enjoying them ever since! They are large mugs...perfect for a nice cup of coffee or to warm up the kids' milk in the morning. They are also nice when we have company over because everyone claims a letter and there's no question about which mug belongs to which person!
I have planned for awhile now to add to our alphabet collection (I even picked up a discounted West Elm gift card from Plastic Jungle several months ago.), but I've been waiting for them to go back on sale! Yesterday, I noticed they were back to $4/mug, and I ordered several more to add to our collection! We've even picked up a couple of them for presents in the past, and I ordered an extra 'N' mug this time for a family helper who could use some sunshine cheer! I love that this gift is personalized and inexpensive. Add a $1 bin mini-bag of coffee and you're good to go! It'd be a perfect host gift or teacher gift as well! Come to think of it, I'm off to place a second order for some coffee loving preschool teachers!
Feel free to send any inexpensive gift ideas my way by adding a comment to the post. I heart comments:)!!
Have a wonderful fall weekend!
