Yes!!! It's not called Dollartree yet, it's still Dollarama, but when I bought my cups there I noticed that the bags said dollartree! It's by the huge supercenter walmart, over by the petsmart and bulkbarn. They had lots of great stuff there :)

It's best to sign up online for Michaels coupons we waiting until we got 40-50% coupons and then bought them because they are pretty expensive. I think normally they are like $25-$30 for the pack so it's a decent deal if you have coupons.

I was not able to find any cheaper but if you check out ebay they might have good deals. I bought tiny little ones to attach to my place cards and they were super cheap for 100 and shipping wasn't too bad. (they are all really small though- 1inch or less)

 

What seller did you use on ebay for the smaller ones? They definitely don't have to be big! Yeah I never thought of using the ones attached to garlands. Good call!

It's avon care deeply aloe gel 150ml tube I think I paid $35 for 20 tubes and shipping was $10! So it worked out to like $2 a tube! The ones that you can get at dollarama for $2 are 106ml so the avon ones are quite a bit larger. I figured since I'm giving them 1 per family/couple/single the bigger ones are better if someone gets really burnt and needs to apply it multiple times a day

 

I definitely can't find jass123456's aloe tubes :( Are you able to copy and paste the link? Thanks!

However, they are available on the avon site for a pretty good price! http://shop.avon.ca/avonshop_en/default.asp

 

Just found them on avon :) They are an awesome price!

@ Dazeydawl- For your bags, are you putting one of each item in every bag? So for a bag for a couple, are you putting in one tube of Tylenol or two because there are two people? I'm going to do the same thing and give one bag per couple/single. Just not sure if I should be doubling on some things.... kinda sounds like a dumb question but do people really need two things of tylenol or maybe I'm just being cheap.... LOL

Lol I don't think your being cheap!! For me it depends on what the item is. I did get the travel tubes of Advil for $2 from dollarama that have 10tabs so that will be one per bag, same with Kleenex aloe tums hand sanitizer. I will put 2 lip balms in the bags going to couples same with alot of the moist wipes and insect repellant wipes that will be per person, but most of that stuff came in boxes of like 36 or 48 wipes so ill just do the math and figure it out.

You're definitely not being cheap - I'm doing the same. Only doubling up on some things. The way I look at these bags is the "OH SH!T - I don't have...." until they can buy some...I'm not supplying them with everything they need. Its just to tie them over until they can get what they need. And maybe they would only need what is in the bag, and no need for more.  At least that's the way I'm looking at it. LOL :)

Definitely not being cheap!! These bags are so much time/effort!!!! I'm giving those $2 dollarama advil bottles one per couple/family and one to singles (they will probably need it more anyways hahah). They contain 6 advil I think! I got one for each guest of the mugs, lanyard/card and maybe some of the snacks, but honestly don't over do it! :) They will totally appreciate whatever you end up giving!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
