Christmas at the Dollar Store Vlog plus Free Holiday Dollar Gift List

It’s been a while since we did a shopping vlog so I thought it would be fun and helpful to show you what the Dollar Tree has for Christmas!  I found beautiful holiday decor, homeschool finds and gift ideas all for $1. Although it’s the dollar store, we must be wise with how we spend our dollar.  Not everything at dollar store are good deals.  When I shop on a budget, I also look for quality.

Did you know there’s an online dollar store app too?  Lately, I’ve been checking what deals I can spot on my Hollar app.  Great brand name finds in different price ranges and they have a Hollar for Your Dollar section.  So many smart ways to shop on a budget!

Here’s a list of holiday decor and gifts ideas I believe are a great deal compare to shopping at retail stores.


Decorating your home for the holidays is a snap with the fun things I found:

  • Wood wall art- I love decorating my home with the snowman theme for the holidays since we don’t get snow here in my part of Arizona.
  • Tons of wrapping paper, even name brand names and gift bags
  • Pretty ornaments- great quality, variety of colors and package sets by the dozen.
  • Sparkly silver jars- perfect for candles or holding holiday treats
  • Kitchen towels and oven mitts- I also use these to make gift sets for teachers or neighbors.  Add a baking mix and a wooden spoon to a oven mitt, tie it with ribbon.
  • Holiday dinner plates and chargers in gold or silver add glamour to a table scape.

Gift Ideas 

  • Paperback books- add a coffee shop gift card and tie it with a bow.
  • Pretty stationary-great for moms or scrapbook lovers.
  • Adult coloring books- add some colored pencils to complete the gift.
  • Calendars or daily planers- make great gifts for teens or moms
  • Pencils, erasers, and mini games make great stocking stuffers or Hanukah gifts.


  • Activity packs of various subjects for different grade levels
  • Classic books- I found A Christmas Carol which is great for read-aloud in December.
  • Crafts in a bag- great for homeschool art projects and decorating the home.
  • Plastic ball ornaments- make great DIY projects for the kids to paint and embellish to make their ornament of the year.
  • Stickers- great for adding to packages, cards and for crafts.
  • Bible mini figurines- the best find of my vlog!  These are perfect for telling Bible stories especially the birth of Jesus.
