Frugal Stocking Stuffers for Adults

Gift Cards
You cannot go wrong with a gift card! One nice thing about them is that you get to choose how much money to put on it. This helps keep things within your budget. Another great thing about them is they are useful gifts. You can be certain that the person you give it to will use it.

Gift cards are a great way to say “happy holidays” and “thank you” to your child’s teacher, your mailman, or the person who does your nails. Gift cards are also a great choice for that hard-to-shop-for family member. Get that person a gift card for their favorite store or restaurant.

Christmas Cookies
Most people will be delighted by a gift of Christmas cookies. Those of you that love to bake have the perfect excuse to make several batches of cookies “from scratch”. It is also perfectly acceptable to bake some of the pre-made cookies from dough you buy at the store.

Place the cookies into sealable plastic bags that have holiday decorations on them. Another option is to arrange the cookies on festive paper plate. Cover it with plastic wrap and the person you give the gift to can see what is inside.

Coffee and Tea
Do your relatives have a Keurig? Pick up a box of their favorite K-cups. Pair it with a nice coffee mug. This gift will be used and very much appreciated! They will think of you as they have their first cup of coffee or tea in the morning.

What if they don’t have a Keurig? Consider VIA from Starbucks instead. They have several varieties of “instant coffee” to choose from. All you need is a coffee mug, some hot water, and maybe a spoon to stir the VIA with.

Flash Drive
A USB Flash Drive is a small gift that can be very useful for students (who need transfer their assignment from a school computer to home). You can get them in a bunch of different styles. Pick one that is cute, or funny, or the favorite color of the person you are giving the gift too.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
