Frugal Homemade Gift Ideas

It’s not a secret…I LOVE Christmas! But often we struggle with finding the right gift or having enough money to spend on a gift. Recently we have been sharing Frugal Homemade Gift Ideas over on Pocket Change Gourmet.

With the Holidays quickly approaching {yikes…only 5 days left}, we all need some last minute, easy and frugal gift ideas.

My favorite…Decorated Take-Out Boxes around $1 each

And these Wine Bottle Covers are less than $2 plus the cost of the wine. They make a great Hostess Gift too!

And decorating a recycled container is not only frugal but also great for the environment.

Last year I shared several ideas for Homemade Holiday Gifts. I thought you might enjoy seeing them again. Most can be made under an hour and they all cost less than $5 per gift!

  1. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups
  2. Cranberry Bread
  3. Cupcake Wrapper Tutorial
  4. Christmas Cheese Ball
  5. Homemade Christmas Ornaments
  6. Santa Pretzel Rods
  7. Cupcakes in a Jar
  8. Christmas Cookie Containers
  9. Candy – Cookie Dough Truffles and Chocolate Pops
  10. Hot Fudge Sauce
  11. Homemade Marshmallows
  12. Make-Ahead Breakfast Casserole
