Cup of Cheer {Gift it}

Bitter COLD temps have reached our parts and that means hunkering indoors for days-on-end covered in heavy blankets while sipping creamy tea. When you add three days of school closings due to the too-cold-to-play-outside temps it can lead to a little cabin fever and restlessness. This thrifty gift was created with my trapped Mama's in mind.

Good ole Cup of Cheer

Leaving small gestures of love or appreciation to your Dearies doesn't have to cost a lot of money. As I visit thrift stores, I'm always on the prowl for cute and dandy gift receptacles: baskets, mugs, vintage plates and platters, buckets and more. These cups of cheer were made with thrifted mugs, candy kisses, a tea bag and an adorable FREE desk calendar found at Design Is Yay {color cardstock copies were .59 each at Staples}. See?? Reasonably priced and so darling!

Sweet surprises on doorsteps is my favorite. Easy. Frugal. And a blessing to the recipient. What are some favorite ways you surprise or bless the people in your life??
