Rob Sparks Wins Christmas Gift Giving with Goodwill
Christmas time is here, and we all have gifts we need to give. Sometimes our budget doesn't match the number of gifts we need to give, and sometimes they say you can only spend $10 on a gift. Either way, that's where Goodwill comes in and makes you look like a great gift-giver without breaking the budget.
We shopped at the Beltline location and found SO many great things for gifts, I had a hard time narrowing down the top gifts. I tend to be the fun gift-giver in my family and group of friends; Goodwill did not disappoint in my finds.
Gotta serious golfer on your list — who still has a landline? Here's the perfect golf phone for them. Also just obnoxious if you have a boss, family or friend who is golf-obsessed.
If you've ever thought "you need Jesus" when one of your friends were talking, then this picture of Jesus is perfect and one of my favorite finds. You can see I also found a cool star lamp which would be great for a niece who is trying to make her room look more grown up — and maybe she needs Jesus?? (shrug)
Goodwill has so many cool things if you have someone with collections or hobbies. Yeah, the Batmobile may only be good for kids who collect all the superhero toys, but the camera lens mug would be perfect for the picture-taking hobbyist.
Unique gifts that don't break your budget, remember? The stoplight, perfect for a gift at the office (you can put it on your desk) or again, a cool addition to a niece or nephew's room. The sailboat, super cool toy.
Gotta sports fan in your life? You never know what you can find - I randomly came across this Tiger street sign. It was 25 cents - now Chris, my friend who loves the Tigers, thinks I care :)
Oh yeah, if you aren't in the Christmas mood yet and don't feel like shopping because you have ZERO Christmas decorations, they have a whole section for you to get all fa la la and stuff.
