Lighted jump rope

2. Styrofoam ice chest

Look for them at the front of the store near the ice machine. I leave them on my front porch with cold drinks in them for delivery drivers or neighbors who need hydration. Or spray paint them a dark color, make drainage holes, and turn them into planters.

Healthy travel snacks

3. Healthy travel snacks

Fruit puree packets rival brand-name snacks. Look for them in the kids’ and baby’s section. Look for Munch King plantain chips for healthy snacks.

Jelly hair ties

4. Jelly hair ties

Plastic-coiled hair ties are great because they don’t leave any lines or indents in your hair.

Cute summer socks

Summer socks from Dollar Tree

5. Summer socks

Dollar Tree has beautiful new summer-themed socks. You can make them into little gifts, too. Turn a pair into a summer sock cupcake by rolling up a pair and putting it into a muffin holder. Tie it up with a bow and you have a cute gift.

Specialty coffee at Dollar Tree

6. Specialty coffee

Dollar Tree carries the Harry & David Ground Coffee and Jim Beam brands of coffee, too.

Godiva chocolate from Dollar Tree

7. Godiva chocolate

Whenever I see Godiva chocolate at Dollar Tree I scoop it up. It’s a fraction of the cost of what I would pay in other stores.

Coffee mugs at Dollar Tree

8. Coffee mugs

Grab a clear glass (or any design) coffee mug from Dollar Tree for a great gift hack with coffee and chocolate. Put some coffee in a zipper bag, put it in the mug, and create faux whip cream out of a white coffee filter. Place chocolate on top and wrap it all up for a little thank-you gift.

Journaling supplies at Dollar Tree

9. Journaling supplies

The store carries some beautiful journals that rival the high-end DaySpring journal brand. Add a pen for a gift.

Gift bags at Dollar Tree

10. Gift bags and gift tissue

Look for the packs of two bags plus beautiful summer gift tissue paper. Pack a journal in a bag for a quick gift.

Hydrating spa gloves at Dollar Tree

11. Hydrating spa gloves

These new hydrating spa gloves have a pretty rose pattern and a rose fragrance. They are great for gardeners, too, because they moisturize and feel great when they’re on.

New Testament large print at Dollar Tree

12. New Testament large print

Grab some large print books from Dollar Tree and pack them in a gift bag. Here’s a gift-giving hack: Pack the bags first with the items upright before you put in the tissue paper. That way the tissue paper will hide the items after you stick it in.

Contact lens cases at Dollar Tree

13. Contact lens cases

These little cases are great for storage. I put earrings in there and they are safe for travel.

Travel containers at Dollar Tree

14. Travel containers

Dollar Tree’s little travel containers come in classic clear colors. You get varied containers in the little kits, including a spray bottle and bottles with different tops.

You can also find toothbrush covers at Dollar Tree, which are ideal for traveling. I made little labels and put them on all my travel containers so I can be ready to go with all my favorite toiletries.

Dollar Tree finds

15. Plastic baskets with handles

These are perfect for carrying swimwear and anything else to the beach. They work for grocery shopping, too, because they are sturdy and easier to clean than reusable bags.
