Thanks for stopping by.  Please browse for gift inspiration or just that right presentation.

The Frugalista Gift Guide helps you satisfy a recipient’s cravings, find that quintessential gift, remind a lover of your affection, aid the consummate entertainer, give with eco-consciousness or be altruistic and do good for all parties concerned.


We think giving great gifts needn’t break the bank. Here you’ll find tips to make the most of your shopping experience both economically and strategically.
We’ll also update you with great gift deals, almost all $50 or under.

Categories meant to inspire your thinking about who your recipients really are/what they really like/love. You’ll find lots of great ideas and… You might find related/similar gift ideas on the listed retailers’ sites—not only in their regular categories, but in related suggestions on the product’s page. Our links take you direct to the product. Keep mind, though, that the retailer may move the product. Still, you can search for it by name on the retailer’s site.

And don’t forget to check the retailers’ sale and clearance sections.
We also include a section on gift possibilities with time-sensitive sales (see category list); tips on efficient shopping; and general information to aid your gift shopping experience. 

And for even more assistance, look for the upcoming Frugalista Guides filled with recipient specific gift ideas!


Again, thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you! We love to hear your comments and suggestions.  Please share posts you find helpful.


Happy Frugalista shopping!
