I don’t know if you have a Christmas Tree Shoppe in your area, but they are a real hot spot for seasonal bargains (don’t be fooled by the name!) If you haven’t recognized/appreciated your volunteers lately, here’s some ideas:
- Canvas Tote Bags (20×16″): $3.99 each (who couldn’t use an extra one of these for the summer?)
- Sunscreen $1.99-$4.99 (practical! Stick it in the tote bag to make a summer essentials kit)
- Insulated Coffee Mugs $2.69 (fun designs)
- Sun Tea Jars $2.99 (pair with a lemonade mix for a fun summer kit)
- Bath and Body Lotions, Sprays, and Soaps $1.00 (for the ladies!)
- Solid Wood Frames $2.99 – $4.99 (frame a great kidmin picture; some even have inspirational phrases)
- Giant Cupcake Mold $6.99 (throw an appreciation party with this!)
Plus, sign up for email coupons and get $10 off a $50 purchase. Prices good June 19th through July 3rd.
This is not related, but they also have a pre-made lemonade stand for $24.99 that might be an adorable summertime decoration for your Children’s Ministry area, especially if you keep it stocked. Recruit a couple of older kids to run it!
