Frugal Christmas Gift Ideas
Christmas is right around the corner! It seems like 2020 is such a unique year I’m not sure I can even believe it’s already December. But as they say, the show must go on. During December I always start thinking about what gifts to buy and for who I have to buy them. I know there are a lot of Frugal Christmas gift ideas out there on the internet. If you are like me it makes me go bonkers, to be honest. Especially do I get my coworkers gifts is that going to be wired or will it be bad if I don’t buy them anything. As the years have passed and the older I have gotten I must admit I still don’t know.
During December I always start thinking about what gifts to buy and for who I have to buy them. If you are like me it makes me go bonkers, to be honest.
What I do know is I have learned a lot about intentional spending over the last few years down my path to FI and FIRE. I know now the best way to spend money is on what I really value and what brings me joy. Now that is harder than it sounds. It has taken me years to get to the point I am at now and I still have not seemed to master this skill yet. Yet It left the question of how do I know how much to spend on others?
Yet It left the question of how do I know how much to spend on others?
This question felt like an itch that I could just not scratch. I really had to sit down do some reading and self-reflecting on it. What transpired from that was not only this post it was an idea. An idea that I should create a list of gifts for guys and hopefully the women that are frugal, useful, tasteful, and would be used for years to come.

Frugal Christmas Gift Ideas
I really truly believe in these products or I would not have spent time in creating this FI/FIRE Men’s gift idea. I believe there is a beautiful gift on here for every type of guy and all these gifts are frugal in costs. I believe that guys would really love, enjoy, value, and use for years to come. I could have added more and almost made the list bigger. Yet I decided on a much smaller more personal list. To me that what my blog is all about is being personal with all of you and authentic.

I am considering making a few more of these gift idea posts. As of now, I am not 100% sure though. I don’t want to go overboard with them but I can see where these are needed as I see the question of “What are some FI/FIRE or Frugal gifts to get people” this time of the year. Anytime I see a question asked enough times I know it’s time to write a post about it and share it for an easy way to spread the word and help answer that question for people.
All of these gifts are less than $25. I made sure I kept the costs low while not sacrificing value for these gifts. I wanted to make sure these gifts would not break the monthly budget for families. As I know and fully understand how tight money can be in December with the holidays. Especially this year when we are currently in a pandemic.
Best Holiday wishes from my family to all of yours!
