The Ultimate Frugal Christmas Gift Guide



A frugal Christmas you ask?  It can be done.  Just because it is frugal does not mean it can not be memorable.  I have put together a gift guide that covers everyone on your list.  I have many gift ideas for each person.  That way hopefully you can have many options to fit the personalities of the different people on your list.  

Each category will have frugal ideas.  The most expensive thing you will find on this gift guide is $49.97.  I hope you get inspired and get some great ideas so you can get Christmas shopping done early this year!  




This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small commission if you make a purchase using any of the links. However, all opinions are 100% my own.

Husband:
-Wallet: $19.99 (free shipping on all items!)- I choose a Slimfold wallet because it seems that every man in my life right now (husband, dad, and brothers) like paper thin wallets.  If your husband likes the thicker ones then Target offers many of those as well!

-Kenneth Cole Reaction Cologne: $27.99 (free shipping on all items!) Why not buy him something that will benefit both of you, :)


-Husky Mechanic Tool Set: $49.97 (Free Shipping to store and sometimes home) - Every guy needs a tool set.  Mechanic tools are a great place to start!  Christmas is such a great time to get tool sets too!


-Shaving kit: $19.88 Although this is a starter kit and won't last forever, it is still nice to receive and if your husband has never tried this brand before then he will be in for a treat!  My husband will never use anything else again.  The travel size is a perfect place to start so he isn't committed to a huge size.



Kids:
-Baby: Bright Starts Clack & Slide Activity Ball - $8.88


-Toddler: Lillabo 12-piece train set - $9.99: I do not think this is gender specific because my daughter is a girly girl and this is what she wants for Christmas, but if you have a little princess that will hate getting a train set then look at Ikea.  They have TONS of options for a very good price.



-Child: Crayola Paint Maker - $18.99 (free shipping on all items!)- This would have been a dream for me as a child.  It is perfection.  I love how they can be creative and make their own paint colors.  Crayola never disappoints.



-Teenager: Gift card iTunes or Google Play - What is it with teenagers and music?  I love music too, but teenagers take it to a different level.  

Mother:
-Night Before Christmas gift set: $25.95 - I absolutely LOVE Lush.  So why not spoil your mom with this gift set.  So yummy!



-Water bottle: $12.99 (free shipping on all items!)- Help you mom get the daily needed amount of water and feel better.  This one is awesome because you can carry keys, id, credit cards, and more in it!  There is a little compartment for it.


-Jewelry: Varies - Honestly you could get anything on this site.  It is amazing.  I have an AMAZING necklace from them and I love it.  Good new!  It is all very affordable.



Father:
-The Civil War by Ken Burns: $44.49: I don't know what it is but men love these kind of things.  I actually do to, but men...they LOVE it.



-Chromecast: $32.49 - We have one of these and I love them! So nice to watch whatever you want on the TV instead of the computer! 




-Jack Black Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser: $18.00 - This not only cleanses, but it also hydrates.  The best of both worlds.  Honestly...an awesome product.



Grandparents:
-Photo book: starting at $12.99 - I don't think grandparents love anything more than looking a pictures of their grand kids.  Shutterfly does an amazing job on the printing and starting at $12.99 that is a deal! 




-Hand Print Frame - $29.99 (or you could make your own for close to free) - This is an awesome way to remind grandparents of all the special hands in their lives.  

-Calendar - desk calendars starting at $17.99 - Once again...bringing in the photos.  They love them.  So why not?! 



Neighbors:
-"Soda-lighted you're our neighbor: Attach to the appropriate size of soda.  For example, if it is only one person then do a smaller soda, but if it is a family then attach the printable below to a two liter. 


Click on picture to get printable (make sure when printing you un-check fit-to-page, otherwise it will be huge)

-Don't let your dishes pile this busy holiday season!:  Attach with a cute ribbon to a package of paper plates.  The dollar store ones are just fine.  Your neighbors won't complain.

-We wash you a Merry Christmas: Attach to hand soup.  These can be found at Joann or at Bed Bath & Beyond.  Either option is only $1!

Brothers:
-Tie - $13.98 (free shipping on all items!) - It seems like men can never get enough ties.  So why not keep it good looking yet frugal?



-Car care kit: $10.78 - Great practical gift.  We all need them right?


-Hat for favorite sports team: Varies - I am not about to put a certain team on here.  *wink  I do not have a favorite.  Sorry...not much of a sports person.  However, I know a lot of people who are and would absolutely love a hat.

Sisters and/or girlfriends
-Magazine subscription: $1.66 an issue - All You is my all time favorite magazine and I believe you can please all types of women with this one magazine.  I have given it many years to a lot of my friends as Christmas gifts.  The best part is it is a gift that keeps giving...every month.



-EOS Hand lotion: Yummy hand lotion is always on a woman's wishlist.




-Jamberry Nails: Last, but certainly not least are Jamberry nail wraps.  I LOVE these.  I am so glad I found them and they have saved my life.  I feel so feminine with them on and I love that they stay looking REALLY good for 2 weeks on my fingernails and 6 weeks on my toes.  They are so much cheaper than a manicure and a pedicure and to top it off they are so so cute.  

They are $15 for a full sheet (that includes 2 manis and 2 pedis!).  Are you kidding me?!  Go check them out and seriously share them with all the women in your life.  They will love you for it!  Oh...and buy yourself one too, because they have a deal where if you buy 3 then you get one free!  Awesome! 



So this is the exciting part!  I am giving away a cute little gift packet full of Jamberry goodness.  This gift packet will include a Jr. wrap, adult wrap, nail care cuticle oil, file, orange stick, rubber cuticle pusher, nail scissors, buffer block, and a bonus sheet!  This packet is worth $70!  I am so excited for this giveaway because I am so passionate about these wraps and all the Jamberry products.
