Ideas For Cheap Gifts

I'm Asking: Any Ideas For Inexpensive Gifts?

The holidays are coming up, and it's definitely present season around here. I hope you've been checking out our wonderful gift guides here at Sugar, but I'm wondering what kind of frugal presents you're giving. Maybe you grabbed some great deals on Cyber Monday (online sales were up 19 percent this year!), or maybe you turned to some good old-fashioned homemade presents. I'm asking: what great ideas do you have for affordable gifts?

I like to make homemade trail mix in jars and wrap a ribbon on them to give as hostess gifts during the holidays. I buy the jars, labels and fixings in bulk, which makes for an inexpensive, homemade and delicious treat that lasts beyond a few days.

Used books are always wonderful. You can find good stuff that's out of print at any local used bookstore or Goodwill. Great for readers, kids, or even people looking for an inexpensive way to decorate their home. But the best (practically free) gift ever? Give someone a card indicating that you will cook supper for them, or clean their kitchen, or some other similar task. Busy people LOVE this kind of thing.

I always think that books or perhaps cooking/dancing lessons are nice gifts. I think that electronics are usually pretty expensive...so I would stay away from any Apple stuff...

I've picked up some nice gifts at local independent shops, which has kept costs down (and helps the community!) - gorgeous pottery and locally-roasted coffee beans. I've also bought a few things off Etsy, which I always love for unique gifts - quite a few of their shops are offering free shipping and after-Thanksgiving sales. Definitely on the lookout for more ideas, though.
