5 Gifts Under $5.00!

For Pittsburgh schools this is the last week we are in session before winter break. Which means it's that time to get a few small gifts for those to whom you want to show a little appreciation for at this time of year, such as, teachers, tutors, bus drivers, co-workers, neighbors etc.   
It can be harder nowadays, with more and more food allergies, to not go out and make a large batch of cookies to give out. We put together a few gift ideas that can be somewhat universal and to give under $5.00. Also, check out these 10 DIY Gift Wrap, Boxes, & Bows that will save you money this season.

Recently one of our students in our after school art program at Phillips greeted us with her mother after programming.  In her hand was a Hot Chocolate from Starbucks and gave it to each of us by saying "Happy December!" It was such a thoughtful gesture and made all of us feel so grateful to be working with such a great group of kids. It is the simple things. Even if you don't have time or money to give a gift, a sweet note of thanks means so much more than a gift any time of the year.

  5. At long last, making all the more convincing excitement needn't be the assignment of simply the Melbourne Cup. Dashing in Australia has unmistakably changed, and run hustling – frequently challenged by steeds hustled by huge syndicates of proprietors – is plainly the new staple.

    Be that as it may, for reasons unknown, Racing Victoria appears to be resolved to avoid this pattern. In reporting major prizemoney increments for this season, the majority of the real lifts were given to staying races. Amazingly, there wasn't a dollar increment for any of the Lightning Stakes, Oakleigh Plate, Newmarket Handicap, William Reid Stakes, Moir Stakes, Manikato Stakes or Darley Classic.

    "Lloyd Williams and Aiden (sic) O'Brien will be content with that", joked one punter on Twitter.

    The Darley Classic is unmistakably the pro in the Melbourne Cup Carnival hand. The scenes of Redzel's armed force of proprietors going ballistic after a year ago's win could've been a world far from the outcome of Rekindling's Melbourne Cup.

    Reviving wasn't seen on an Australia racecourse previously or after the Melbourne Cup.
