Also, finding perfect items for your theme can be a fun challenge, especially if you choose an uncommon theme.

MY BUDGET AND WHAT I PURCHASED:

Sometimes I really go all out for themed gifts on a much larger scale, but for this particular one I needed to keep it small since my budget was only $15.00.

I only spent $13.31 and my gift still looks great even on a small budget!

I found the unique starfish ornament at Tuesday Morning during a Christmas season for $4.99. It’s made with lots of seed beads and tiny shells. It looks expensive and I was thrilled to find it! (I hate that Tuesday Morning went out of business ~ sobbing.)

The starfish candle holder was purchased at Kohl’s during a summer 50% off sale for $4.99. It’s so pretty!

Craft stores, like Michael’s, always carry photo boxes and I found mine during a 3 for $9.99 sale. (Update 2022 – I’ve noticed that they’re more expensive now.)

Photo boxes are awesome to use as gift boxes. My starfish ornament and candle holder fit inside perfectly. I thought this starfish box was a unique find and couldn’t get it in my cart fast enough!

You can make your own gift tag in Canva or Wordperfect. To find a starfish image, Goggle ‘starfish outline image.’ Print your design on cardstock, cut out a gift tag shape, and punch a hole in tag.

I used a gold metallic Sharpie marker to highlight the gift tag edges and the starfish. Twine was used to secure the box like you would using ribbon.
