affordable presents: daiso

I needed to create 3 birthday presents stat. Three of my girlfriends' birthdays are very close to each other and I was going to give them their presents all on the same day. So I decided to give them similar presents. 

I had never heard of Daiso until my younger sister, Ashley introduced me to this Japanese dollar store. (They just opened one local to me.) Every item in the store is $1.50 unless marked higher. I took a look around last week and I came up with these 3 presents and I only spent $20!

Apparently there are 15 locations in the U.S. - 5 in Washington and 10 in California. So hopefully there's one in your area! If not, you can always order online.

Not too shabby, right?

  1. Oh geez. I cannot walk past a dollar store without loading up a cart- but this one is so sweet! I'm on the East Coast - loving the online site. Thanks!

    Warmest regards,

    1. Daiso had a lot of weird stuff, too. I guess I should have mentioned it in this post. But I did manage to find these gems!

      Thank you for the kind words, Alexandra!

  2. Great idea! And the fact that they're all matching just ads to the cuteness! :)

    1. I thought so, too. I imagined them opening them all at the same time. It didn't work out like that, but that's life!

      Thanks for stopping by Deanna. Love your blog!

  3. I love Daiso! It has got to be one of my favorite stores to roam through, because you never know what you're going to find!
    I scored some awesome cardboard storage boxes with metal accents.
    They are gorgeous, people always ask where I got them - and they were 1.50 each! (score!)

  4. Never heard of Daiso, but I will have to check them out. These are cute finds!


  5. Not to shabby at all, actually super cute!! Cute blog too!!

  6. These little things are adorable! Love the striped detail and that you gave them all similar things!
