Neighbor Gift Ideas

Monday, December 7, 2009 |
One of the reasons I buy "extras" throughout the year is to plan ahead for gifts. I have bought birthday presents, neighbor gifts, baby shower gifts, wedding shower gifts, and so many more gifts for less by using coupons. With Christmas right around the corner I thought we would compile a list of items that are on sale this week to use for neighbor gifts!

  • At my Smith's Sprite was on sale for .79 and when you bought 4 of them you got one for FREE. They also had hanging tags on them for $1/2. Each Sprite ended up costing me .23!!! I am going to give them to my husband to take to his co-workers (whom I have never met) and put hanging tags on them that say, "We wish you a Merry and SPRITE Christmas". Another idea was to tie a roll of Scotch tape at the top and hang a tag that reads, ""Holidays can be stressful. Sit down and have a scotch and soda!"
  • A package of Hostess Donuts are on sale at Smith's for $1.67. Add this saying on to a little card and you have a cute gift for a close friend, "Donut" you know we love you??? Have a happy Holiday!"
  • Progresso Soups are on sale for .63 cents at Smith's this week. Grab a couple of soup bowls from Tai Pan Trading (I love these and always buy a couple extras with gifts in mind. I think they cost me $1.25 and they come in a couple different colors. And did you know they opened a store in the University Mall!) I put the soup in the bowl, wrapped it up in clear cellophane tie a bow on it and have a great teacher gift! If you feel like you need a little more...add a box of Ritz crackers for .99 cents at Smith's this week.
  • Freschetta Pizzas are on sale for $2.87 after coupon at Smith's. Add a tag that reads, "Warm up to a wonderful Holiday Season "Topped" with Christmas cheer!" and you have another gift off your list.
  • Smith's has cream cheese on sale for .88 cents and Ritz crackers on sale for .99. Whip up a Cheese Ball and some Crackers and say, "We don't mean to sound "Cheesey", we just hope you have a "Ball" this Holiday Season! Or "Spread a little Christmas Cheer this Holiday Season!", or "Have a "ritzy" Christmas season and "spread" around the joy!". Last year when we received one of these from my husbands aunt she added these adorable chocolate covered mice on the plate. Can I tell you how cute it looked!
  • A 12 pack of Dad's root beer is on sale for $1.67 at Fresh Market. Add, "We're "Root"ing for you to have a Happy Holiday Season and a Wonderful New Year!" and you've got another GREAT neighbor gift idea.
  • Brownie mixes are only .48 after coupon at Fresh Market. Add, "Whip up this mix for a wonderful holiday fix! Wishing you a "rich" Holiday Season!!" or maybe "Christmas is Jolly, Christmas is sweet. I’m stressed out so make your own darn treat!" or maybe even "We're trying for BROWNIE POINTS this season!" Consider adding a wooden spoon for the $ store for an extra touch.
  • Macey's has the Rhodes Warm and Serve rolls on sale for .88 cents after coupons. Use, "Here's a little holiday treat. Rise and bake, it can't be beat! Warm fresh rolls just for you. Top with butter that's all you do! Warm Holiday Greetings to you" and you have another person off your list.
  • Reams has light bulbs on sale for .99 cents. Add, ""Have a bright and radiant Christmas" to the package.
  • Krazy Coupon Lady gave a great scenario for how to score wrapping paper for only .49 from Hallmark. I was able to score 4 rolls. Put a little card on them that says, "Wrap" yourself up in a wonderful holiday season!". It seems like last minute people are always a little short on wrapping paper on Christmas Eve. I am going to add a scripture that says, "And they found him WRAPPED in swaddling clothes in a manger." on my rolls.
  • Utah Deal Diva found dessert sized paper plates for FREE at Winco. Add a tag that reds, "Don’t let your dishes pile up this busy holiday season. Let our family ‘do the dishes’ this week! Merry Christmas!"
  • Chex Mix is on sale or only .49 cents after coupon at Walgreens. Wrap a bow around the package and slip in a tag that reads, "Santa ‘chex‘ his list twice to see who’s been naughty or nice. So be good for goodness sake!". Also consider trying one of the homemade chex mix recipes that I showed you.
This list should help you get started, but be on the lookout for more to come soon!
