Welcome to Thrifty Thursday with myself and Anna from Feminine Adventures! We’re so glad to have you join us! Thank you to all of you who linked up last week with your helpful and frugal posts!

Today I’m going to share ten frugal {and I think thoughtful} Christmas gift ideas! Many of these have been shared at Thrifty Thursday over the past couple of weeks.

First off, if your kids like to do crafts, why not have them make an adorable Christmas tree like this from The Chirping Moms! This would make a really nice gift for someone who has a small home or perhaps is in a care facility and isn’t able to have a lot of extra “stuff”. {Also, Barb from A Life in Balance has some good ideas for Christmas gifts you can make in an afternoon!}

Gifts in a jar, like this M&M cookie recipe, are both frugal and thoughtful!

Or you could try what’s been one of my favorite gifts to make: Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice Sugar Scrub!
Ivy has some great ideas for homemade gifts that are personal and useful as well as frugal!

If you like making Christmas mixes and treats to gift to others, try these Peppermint BrowniesBrownies on platter close 300x200 Peppermint Brownies
Or how about Three Ingredient Hot Cocoa Mix? Seriously simple and tastes delicious without all that artificial “yuck”.
Anna’s Nourishing Energy Bites are sweet as well as nutritious. You could wrap them in decorative plastic wrap or put them in a cute Christmas-y bag!
To package your lovely gifts inexpensively, make gift tags and wrap gifts with re-purposed materials that you probably already have in your craft cupboard or junk drawer!

Victoria has some great ideas for packaging your homemade treats inexpensively as well!
