Buckets 'O Fun

This is just a quick post on how to put a little wow factor into gifts this summer season. We had three birthdays to go to last weekend so we were quite busy around here. My simple and quick gift was from Dollar General.

I took a cute sand bucket and filled it with all types of pool goodies like goggles, pool sticks and beach balls. Instead of tissue paper, I bought a cheap plastic table cloth and cut it up into several squares.

For my gift tag, I took the shovel that came with the bucket and traced it onto orange paper. I then included the birthday person's name and who it was from. Real simple, yet real fun.

That looks super. Every child (or adult) would be thrilled to receive such a gift, it looks so inviting.
