Family timeeee!


So my mom called me a few weeks before Memorial Day letting me know that she and my Stepdad planned to come and visit me during the holidays, yay! I rarely get out of town visitors to my apartment, so I was extremely excited, especially because of who was coming! Knowing that I was still hosting on a budget, I still wanted to do all I could to make sure they were comfortable during their stay.

I did the usual: Fresh linens, soaps, all that jazz. But I need something more… something that made me look like I, perhaps, had my life together.

My solution? Welcome Baskets!

I gathered some of my Mom and Step-Dads favorite things and readied them for their arrival!

What I put in the Baskets!

  • Doublemint Gum – My moms fave
  • San Pelligrino Lemon Water
  • Snacks: M&Ms, Cheez-Its, Oreos, Granola Bars, etc.
  • Toiletries: Tissues, Soap, Toothpaste, Mouthwash – My mother never forgets toiletries! But I made this for good measure.
  • A bottle of one of my moms favorite wine choices – (I blogged about it in my Wine on a Dime post)

Not only did they love the baskets, (my Step-Dad ate allll of the snacks along with my Sister who surprised me by coming along!) but every item was purchased at The Dollar Tree besides the wine!!

In Total I paid:

  • Wine – $6
  • Baskets – $2/both
  • Toiletries – $5
  • Snacks – $7

Total: $20!

My family absolutely loved them and I can’t wait to create a few more for future guests!
