When she needs a cute birthday outfit.
We love thrift stores! Why? Get anything you need for under 10 dollars. Even your next birthday outfit could be here. Browse the dresses for any cute finds for her next birthday party. Pick up a pair of gently used heels to complete the look and accessories if they have any. If you don't see anything, try a few more thrift stores in the area. You're bound to find something special no matter if it's your birthday or her birthday or not.
21st birthday? No problem. Bring on those wine glasses and decorate them.
Just about every thrift store has tons and tons of wine glasses for any drinking celebration. Even an interesting coffee mug or glass can be a good birthday gift for the coffee-holic in your life.
