Kitchen Edition

Despite a few recent warnings about a forthcoming U.S. housing bubble, the market is still hot-especially now. Many reports declared 2015 as the best housing market in almost ten years.

Also, whether buying a home or not, many recent grads-high school and college-will be relocating.

Increase in relocations and new homes = Party at Their New Place AND Frugal~ista Gifts for the occasion.

Check out a few Frugalista gift ideas.


Got a coffee fiend on your hand? Or, they just need a cup or two before heading out the door?  Either way, they will save money with this Starbucks Verismo 580 Brewer. They’ll easily make freshly brewed premium coffee and espresso with this sleek system before they finish brushing their teeth-even if they only brush 15 seconds. Easily adjusts to the height of their cup. And looks pretty on the counter. In 4 colors.

$42 $73-$84 Amazon, $99 Starbucks, $98-$100 Walmart


If this is a group gift, consider bundling with a set of the pods. Then, your gift recipient is ready to “expresso” immediately.

Perhaps your housewarming gift recipient might appreciate a comforting cup of tea after all that unpacking. Would they love the pretty Starry Sky Filtering Glass Teapot? The large removable filter is perfect for flowering/blooming and loose tea. Made of heat-resistant glass. Includes free tea.

$21 $23


To ensure their full and immediate enjoyment of this lovely teapot, include a gift of Summer Passion Blooming Tea. A nice addition to the free tea sample included with the pot. Your tea lover will enjoy watching the blossom unfold from the hand sewn tea bundle of tender green tea leaves. 12 bundles.

$8 $10

What decor pieces in other areas would your gift recipient love to have for their new home? Love to use? Love to try? Would look absolutely fantastic in their decor theme?


We enjoy finding  deals and Frugalista gifts that will delight and not break the budget. Especially ones that give you ideas of your own. All  so you don’t have to rack your brain.

You just have to know who your recipients are.

We hope you find the perfect fit or at least get some perfect ideas for your gift recipient.
