Things to Buy at The Dollar Tree {Besides Gift Bags}

Dollar Trees have been around forever but lately it seems like they've been stepping up their game. It's no secret that the Dollar Tree is a great place to buy gift bags and tissue paper, but they also have so much more if you just look around. 

Here are some of my favorite things.
Mini coca-cola glasses-perfect for summer // Plastic serving platters 
Fiesta inspired dishes // The perfect patio glasses

Name brand nail polish // Reusable bags that are actually cute
Chalkboard labels // Mod Podge-perfect for little craft projects

Blank Paris inspired notecards // Scrapbook stickers and letters
Child proof candle lighters // Tools that for DIY projects 

Do you shop at the Dollar Tree? What great finds have you found?


Linking up with Annie for Thoughts on Thursday.

  1. Love the dollar store! We recently bought a bunch of batteries there--we will see how long they last but you can't beat them for a dollar! I get all my foam board there too!

    1. I didn't even think about batteries! A long time ago Target use to sell them in their dollar section. You'll have to let me know how long they last.

  2. I love the dollar store.. I am a teacher and get a lot of stuff for my classroom there. Their little bins are best to use for books and such :)

    1. I love their bins for organization and the teacher stuff is so cute and inexpensive, especially since you have to buy your own materials. Thanks for stopping by:)

  3. I love the dollar store, you can always find so much stuff there that you never knew existed! When I used to teach I would order from Dollar Tree online so that I would get enough baskets, or whatever I needed for my classroom. I actually was able to just pick up in store!

    1. That's a great idea! I've seen a few DIY projects on Pinterest where people have ordered things of the website that wasn't available in the store.

  4. I always forget about Dollar Tree! So many great things for.. a dollar! Definitely checking them out before I spend a bunch of money for party supplies for our gender reveal party this Saturday!

    1. You should totally check them out! Their mylar balloons are only a dollar and they fill them up-WAY less expensive than Party City.

  5. I am a preschool teacher and I find great finds at the Dollar Tree for my class. Great place to gather together items for a gift basket. Always check there before going anywhere else because you never know what you will find.

    1. Gift baskets are a great idea and you never know what you can find by looking around. The preschool and teacher charts and decorations are so cute and such a good idea to use for the classroom.

  6. I agree that they have definitely stepped up their Dollar Tree game lately :) I love their seasonal items, storage containers, plastic bowls, canned goods, candy, hygiene products, party supplies - napkins, plates, table decor and coloring books/board books.

    1. I forgot about the board books! They usually have all the popular shows/character books so it would be great for kids gifts.
