Gift Guide: Holiday Prep with Dollar General

This post is sponsored by Dollar General. All opinions are my own.

Christmas has to be my FAVORITE time of the year. I enjoy everything from decorating to gift giving. Because I’m already on holiday mode, I headed to my local Dollar General to pick up a few items to get the whole family in the Christmas Spirit. I found just about everything I needed, from decor for our home to gifts for the girls. So, I thought I would share a few of my finds with you in case that you’re planning to get started on your holiday prep! 😉

Decorating the Home

This year, I decided to focus on decorating the front door area. And I looked for items that would spruce up the area while keeping me under budget. My first find was the cutest door mat at just $8. I also found some fun Christmas signs to add by the front door, starting at just $1. Because I often like to change things up, I opted to skip the wreath this year and use this cute Santa Please Stop here sign in its place.

I also purchased Nutcrackers this year, which have always been on my list for the longest… And I think may lead to a new tradition because I want to start collecting them. 🙂 I am a lover of scents and nothing says Holidays like a delicious scent, whether it’s from the tree, baked goods or a candle. So of course, I happened to add a candle to my cart for only $5. I just love being able to light a candle, drink some hot cocoa and just relax this time of year. Out of ALL the items I purchased, my most favorite has to be the Christmas countdown, because I can already see how much the girls will enjoy doing this through Christmas.

Gift Options for Everyone

The girls haven’t made their lists yet… but I’m pretty confident in what I found. They are both loving LOL Surprise and when I saw all the goodies from this brand, I decided to get them each the cutest headbands. I was impressed with the wide assortment of known brands Dollar General has, I also found goodies from Paw Patrol, My Little Pony, Fisher Price and Hot Wheels just to name a few. Because Barbie is another one of their favorite brands, I also got a doll for each and a set of Barbie headphones for the littlest. I’m so excited that I can hardly wait for Christmas to get here and watch them open their gifts. 🙂

Stocking stuffers are always a good idea, and I love doing these for the adults on my list. So this year, I’m putting together a few stockings and including some beauty options like face masks, cosmetics, Gumi earbuds, BOD body spray for the guys…. Another great gift option available at Dollar General are gift sets. These are super easy because you get one wrap it and they’re ready for gifting.

  4. We have a Dollar General right down the road so this is perfect. I always take my daughter there before a long flight to pick out a few little things. I’ll have to go see if my local one has a few of these items.
