FRUGALISTA GIFTS: HOUSEWARMING

MOVING ON UP OR OUT: HOUSEWARMING PARTY

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.

NECESSITIES

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.
