Add some whimsy with Dollar Tree ornaments for $1.25 each. Beyond trimming your tree, ornaments can add a festive touch to just about anything.

Use them in place of ribbon to add some panache to a present. Or attach one to a hair tie or scrunchie for a look just as spritely and much less tacky than holiday antlers or headbands.

Gift bows

Peel-and-stick-gift bows are a favorite dollar-store steal. They’re a great way to finish a gift — no hassle curling a thin ribbon string and easy to reuse.

For only $1.25, these package sets are a steal at the Dollar Tree, and they come in a mix of styles and colors.

Christmas tree skirt

You might already have a family heirloom tree skirt, but this pretty five-buck tree skirt from Dollar Tree is a nice extra option.

Heirloom tree skirts may have elaborate trim, sequins, pom poms, or other added embellishments you don’t want pets or little people to damage — or even swallow.

Additionally, many people buy table toppers, and this skirt is small enough to drape around a Charlie Brown-style tree.
