FRUGALISTA GIFT IDEAS FOR THE STARTER ENTREES OR TO SIMPLY NOSH

‘Tis the time of the year when we can snack and nibble pretty guilt free. Sometimes, especially now, food makes great Frugalista gifts. If you have recipients who love to snack, or need to take a contribution/hostess gift to an event – one of these might be the answer. We’ve included three retailers known for fantastic goodies. There are many others, but these should give you the perfect gift or ideas on finding a match.

These Frugalista gifts for snackers also make great gifts for co-workers, host(esses), petite gifts, etc.

WalMart Food Gift Baskets+

 

At Walmart, choose from a large selection of food gift sets. Prices start as low as $9. If you order on line, you won’t get before Christmas. I suppose you could shake things up and start Happy New Years with gifts.  Or, give the product ID number to a Walmart associate to find this item in your store. Each set has a “Find in Store” tab.  Gift sets like:

 

TEA/COFFEE

The Starbucks Ceramic Mug Gift Set (ID 0070201461178). Three Starbucks

K-Cups and a ceramic mug nicely wrapped in a bow.

Your recipients might prefer the Tazo Holiday Mug Gift Set(0070201461161).

 

COOKING

The grill master might enjoy the Budweiser Sauce Gift Set (0070201460511). Includes 3 different sauces in Budweiser bottles.

 

KIDS – BY AGE AND SENTIMENT!

A kid will love the SpongeBob Squarepants Ice Cream Set (0004137640197). However, my niece, over age 21, will scream when she gazes upon SbSp and friends peering out from 2 bowls, 2 spoons, 2 packets of choco syrup and pouch of marshmallows.

Sponge Bob & Hello Kitty – Walmart
