GUIDE TO SANE GIFT SHOPPING & GIVING
In a recent report from the U.S. Department of Housing: house sales increased 18.6% in May from April. And, house purchases were already exploding in the last few months. You know what that means: party at their new home.
Here’s a few Frugalista gift ideas.
The Watermelon Wedge Plates make great petite, bundle or ‘polite’ gift. Hand painted ceramic. Watermelon or pie, the raised edges keep it all in.
If your cubicle buddy is a DIYer, a gift of the Swanson folding Jab Saw/Utility Knife Set would serve them well. Includes 3 blades. Bring the projects on.
Give this gift recipient, an artistic piece from which to serve their wine, tea, water or whatever. The hand-blown Genie Wine Decanter holds 51 ounces,
He/She might appreciate these hand-blown Tequila Shot Glasses–if they drink. Heck, even if they don’t, this unique and colorful set could encourage a colorful morning with a shot of raw egg, green drink or OJ. Set of six. But, I’d be careful packing this gift with the Tequila. Just saying…
This beautiful Dena Hampton House Dinnerware Set adds a happy vibe to everyday meals. Vibrant yellow and blue design. These can also serve double duty at informal dinner parties. High-fired porcelain set of 16. Note this is a close-out.

The entertaining gift recipient will find many uses for the Mexican Talavera Floral Ceramic Oval Service Bowl. One, or two, of these handcrafted pieces make a perfect centerpiece with white place settings and colored glasses. (Hint, hint: co-gifters)
How much would they love one or two of the glazed porcelain CHEFS Divided oval Serving Platters? How many ways will they think to use it? They will remember you fondly at holidays! In white, so no worries matching the table setting. Oven, dishwasher and microwave safe.
These cherry wood Puzzle Coasters showcase their home or favorite city/state. 29 states represented, it’s city marked with a heart. Made by artisans in West Virginia.
