Like all of my other deal posts, this post most likely contains affiliate links. You can read my disclosure policy here.

Every Friday, I will be doing a round-up feature of good sales, called Weekend Sales.

While this was intended to be a summer feature, however going forward, I have decided to continue doing this as a weekly feature. This will allow me to check in to my email to collect the best sales and provide you with the deals that you enjoy and expect from Simply Frugal. There will be exceptions though. If I find something that needs it’s own separate post because it’s such a great deal, I’ll be sure to do just that!

The best way to stay up to date on the deals, is to sign up for the Simply Frugal Deals Email. You can do so here.

Build Your Own Gingerbread House Kit

DIY Gingerbread House Kits

My daughters love decorating gingerbread houses every year before Christmas. Probably, most likely, because they get to consume candy. But I also like to think it’s because of the creative process and making something cute.

We like to make a special evening or weekend day out of it by adding hot chocolate and having Christmas carols playing in the background.

This year, I thought it would be fun to create little gingerbread house kits. I even had fun creating a Build Your Own Gingerbread House tag to make them way more official. Lol.

In case you think they’re cute too, you can print off your very own when you click on this link here!

These are so simple to whip up. Here’s what you need:

To assemble them, add 8 square graham crackers or 4 of the large rectangle ones if they are the brand name ones by Christie (pictured below). I like the brand name ones best because you can cut the large rectangle on the top half on an angle so it has a point. This is so the roof crackers have a sturdier resting point.

After this, fill the bag with an assortment of candy. I bought all of ours from Bulk Barn. Seal the sandwich bag.

Once you’ve printed out the tag, cut it out, fold it in half, then staple it to the top of the sandwich bag. Ta da!

The icing I used didn’t fit inside the bags, however, you could create a mini piping bag filled with icing that should fit nicely if you’re giving it as a gift!

You can make your own icing or you can buy it like I do. The premade icing in a can by Betty Crocker and the likes, also works really well!

I think it would be so fun to have a Gingerbread House making party with a bunch of friends! Young or old!

Simply Frugal Gift Guides

It’s gift-giving season, which means you’re either really excited about shopping for gifts, or in the beginning stages of holiday dread. 🙂

Gift-giving can be very overwhelming. Especially for the person who has everything! When I need a gift, the perfect gift in my mind, is something practical and memorable yet a bit extravagant (something they wouldn’t purchase themselves). Of course, my gift-giving has to be done within a budget, as I’m sure most of yours does too.

Finding a budget friendly and unique gift can be challenging, especially as more and more people may be added to your Christmas list. This year, I want to give you several gift guides that feature fabulous gift ideas that you can shop from!

I’m pretty darn excited about this year’s gift guides because I think you’ll find a lot of great gift ideas for everyone on your list. Plus, since you’re getting this from Simply Frugal, the gift guides feature frugal gift ideas that are separated into categories by price!

Here are this year’s Simply Frugal Gift Guides:

Inexpensive Gift Basket Ideas

Giving gift baskets is a fun way to include a little variety in your gift giving. And, if you coupon, you probably have a lot of extra things that you got for free or very cheap that you can place in these baskets as well. Even if you don’t, doing a themed gift basket can make it easy for you to gift things this holiday season. It’s possible to create a gift basket that is so personalized, the receiver will love it! If you are stumped on what to put together, that also won’t cost you an arm and a leg, here are 7 Inexpensive Gift Basket ideas to get you started.

Movie Night Gift Basket

Give the gift of a movie night!  This basket simply requires microwave popcorn, some dollar store candy, a $5 movie from the cheap bin at Walmart and some cozy socks. If you’re making this one for a teen or pre-teen, you could add a gift card for a movie ticket to the local theater.

Manicure Gift Basket

Some simple nail polish, a patterned file (can often be bought at Bath & Body Works or the dollar store for cheap!), a small bottle of hand lotion and some nice nail decals. This one is perfect for teens and tweens. You can also throw in a gift card to a beauty supply shop if desired.

Baker’s Delight Gift Basket

inexpensive gift basket ideas

Do you know someone who loves to bake? Buy them some fun patterned cupcake liners, cake mix, a new oven mitt and a spatula and you have a great gift. You could even skip the basket and just place everything in the mitt and tie off with a ribbon.

Hot Cocoa Gift Basket

Hot cocoa can be made with just a few simple ingredients and packaged nicely in a mason jar. Add in a bag of marshmallows and some dollar store mugs for a finishing touch. This basket costs less than $10 to make and in many cases, less than $5.

Sporty Gift Basket

If you have a sports fan on your gift list, try this one! Place some snacks like sunflower seeds, jerky or popcorn in a basket. Add a small trinket of their favorite sport team such as a key chain, bottle opener or lanyard and finish it off with a set of tickets to watch a minor league team in your area.

Pasta Heaven Gift Basket

Got a pasta lover in your life? Place some fancy pasta (this can often be bought at a discount at outlet stores or a store like Winners), pasta sauce (homemade or bought), shelf stable Parmesan cheese, and a pasta server into the basket for a great fast dinner.

Bookworm Gift Basket

Everyone knows someone who loves to read. This gift basket will delight them! Get a $5 Amazon Gift card or a gift card to their favorite local bookstore (to buy a book or an e-book), a cheap fleece throw blanket, a coffee mug, some tea and a low cost clip-on reading light.

I hope there were some inexpensive gift basket ideas there to help inspire your gift basket building endeavors! Do you have any other themed gift basket ideas that you could share in the comments?
