4. Gifts in a jar are so popular right now. They are an adorable idea and they are so great because anything goes! Fill the jar with a theme of items the recipient loves. Tie the top with some ribbon and you’re done.
5. I love this idea for parents, grandparents, godparents, aunts and uncles. Get a large poster board, picture frame and finger paint from the dollar store. Dip the children’s hands and/or feet in the paint and put their prints on the poster board. Frame when dry for a delightful gift that will bring smiles for years to come.
6. Do you remember making little coupon books in school for your parents? I can remember writing “this coupon is good for one hug” in a mother’s day coupon book I made for my mom when I was in 2nd grade and it’s still a great gift idea years later. Customize the coupons to the recipient with the coupons redeemable for things like a back rub, a dinner out, a night of babysitting, or anything that you think they will love. This is a frugal gift idea that will always be a winner!
These frugal gift ideas can get you started saving money, while still being able to make someone smile on their special day. Keep in mind, it is the thought that counts. Think about the person the gift is for and be creative. You will come up with the perfect frugal gift idea!
