      I won’t buy the decrotive candles at any dollar store, but Dollar

      Tree has jarred candles that are made by the same company that sells

      them at Target & Wal-Mart. They smell exactly the same, for $1-1.50

      cheaper.

      I love Yankee Candle, but I am frugal at heart, and I don’t burn

      votives for scent- I burn them because I like burning candles. A

      single votive at $2 is way out of my range for candle burning. I

      keep candles around for power outages, as well, and at 4/$1 for the

      same votives Target & Walmart sell, I’ll buy em at Dollar Tree.

      Bath Products… well, I’ve found quite a few I like, but again,

      it’s the stuff at Dollar Tree. I have found the overall quality of

      the “Dollar Tree” brand items to be much better than typical generic

      dollar store items.

      candles and shower gel at dollar stores. I am sure others have, but

      I have never received a candle or shower gel from a dollar store

      that was worth the dollar. The cheap candles smell like wax and the

      cheap gels and bubble bath do not lather or smell good. You can get

      Yankee, Village or Olde Virginia brand votive candle for under $2

      and pair them with a votive holder from the dollar store. Wrap in

      cellophane, tie with a ribbon and that is a gift that can be

      enjoyed. Bath and Body sells 2 oz. bottles of bubble bath, shower

      gel, and lotion that are excellent quality. I’d rather get and give

      small baskets or gift bags of nice things than big displays of junk.
