A Frugal Gift

Here is a present that I have put together for a 6 year old girl. I really didn't know what to go with and at one stage was going to resort to the money-in-a-card back up but and this is the but, I love getting presents. Don't get me wrong I still appreciate any money-in-a-card or gift cards I get but is there anything better than actually recieving a gift? And even better a homemade gift with all the thought and time spent there? I think not!

This is a compromise. All up it cost me $4.50 - that was for the notebook (LOVE a good notebook, actually when I think of it I pretty much love stationery - hmmm weird) and the pencils which are a different colour at each end. I made the bag with leftover material from other projects and I have a roll of musk lollies to put in there too.

Is there any other colour for a 6 year old girl? I wish there was....
I would like this present and Amelia has put her 7 year old girl stamp of approval on it too! Hopefully today I will get the new bubs present finished so that I can post it before he cuts his first tooth! LOL!

What's one of the best frugal gifts you have given?
