GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
‘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.
Harry & David’s known for its tower of gifts, delectable pears, abundant gift baskets and boxes, desserts and spreads. If you don’t want to pay extra shipping for holiday arrival, check for local stores here: http://www.harryanddavid.com/h/view/storefront
But, back to the Harry & David goodies.
Like the Rogue Valley Gift Basket. A basket filled with pears and cheese. Contents enclosed in an artistic bamboo bowl that folds down into a trivet. $60 $50
Like the Table Rock Ham and Turkey. Generous servings. Just heat and serve. $60 $50
Like Harry’s Gift Box Classic. Royal Riviera pears with tasty snacks (choco Moose Munch Popcorn, cheese, sausage, crackers and nuts). $40 For pears alone, you can’t go wrong with the Favorite Royal Riviera Pears $30.
Like their rich, sweet and flaky Signature Baklava. Lemon in the honey syrup makes it signature. $20.

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

Figi’s has been around since 1944. Their specialty? Delivering the best of the Heartland. They also have sales going on.
Figi advertises The Holiday Happiness Gift Basket as a snack-fest. Beef sticks, sausages, cheeses, chocolates and more fill a lidded woven basket. Two gifts in one! $25 $17
The Soups and Crocks gift set gives the recipient a starter or a snack. They’ll get two Earthenware soup crocks for reuse. Over and over again, with two each of four soup varieties. $35
How about moist, succulent Smoked Duck & Pheasant? Either will look great on a buffet table. Or, on your recipient’s counter as they snack in style. Figi’s says the smoky tasting meat falls off the bones. It sure looks good. $45 each
The Fancy Dates gift box will make an unusual, yet delectable gift. Or
addition to a holiday spread. $18 – 10 oz; $28 – 23 oz
What’s the holidays without cookies? Perhaps, the tin filled with the Merry Christmas Cookies. Three dozen cookies with a home-baked taste. So, Figi says anyway. $30 $20
