A couple of after-Christmas buys
The gift card holder at top, as you can see, is from Walmart. I got it when the clearance was 50% off, so it was 74¢! Can't beat that for how cute this is. I would have gotten a few more, but we really don't give all that many gift cards, and I have a few other very nice holders bought last year.
Since I love both Mason jars and cars or trucks with Christmas trees, I was instantly drawn to this. The "zinc lid" looks just like metal and if one pulls on it, out comes a place to tuck the gift card and a line to write the amount the card is worth. What a cute design, don't you think?
Below is the back view of the gift card holder:
And then I found a couple of Christmas plates at 75% off, I believe, at the supermarket. These are always handy for presenting gifts of cookies. The clear dish with the poinsettias, bells and holly has such a vintage look! It is plastic, not glass and will be wonderful for a couple of special cookie gifts next year (I bought two of these -- they were less than $2 and are made in USA!).
How about you? Did you find some good deals after Christmas? Do you have specific plans for using what you purchased?
