Frugal Tricks For Holiday Gifts

With the holidays upon us, coming up with inspiring gifts for everyone on your list can be a challenge. Especially when you have teachers, caregivers, service providers and more important people for whom you need to buy. However, The Lakeside Collection has plenty of value-priced items to help you with this task.

For smaller gifts, we offer plenty of cute and creative container sets that can be filled with your most delicious baked goods, candies, or other small items. In fact, our Set of 8 Elf Pants Treat Bags offers a really clever presentation! But if you're looking for something that offers a more deluxe look without spending a lot of money, our numerous value sets can be separated to create multiple gifts that are both impressive and affordable.

The opportunities are endless, but here's an idea, using our 8-Pc. Stainless Steel Pots with Lids as containers, to get your creative juices going:

  1. 1.Separate the pots and tuck the lid for each in the back of its coordinating pot.
  2. 2.Use parts of other value sets to fill them up. In ours, we've used our Bentley's 120-Ct. Tea Collection Tins, Gourmet Hot Beverage Complements, Holiday Cocktail Mix Ornament Set, 16-Pc. Cotton Kitchen Towel Set, Sets of 3 Whimsical Spatulas, and our Gourmet Chocolate-Dipped Spoons.
  3. 3.Personalize each with something that your recipient will truly love, such as an Auntie Acid Humorous Travel Mug, our cute Candy Making Book or Mold set, or a Holiday Cocktail Mix.
  4. 4.Wrap each in cellophane wrap and type them with lovely bows or our Holiday Wine Bottle Jewelry.

It doesn't take a lot of work or a lot of money to put together an elaborate and thoughtful holiday gift from The Lakeside Collection. With one idea, a few gifts and some frugal tricks, you can rework it to please several people on your list this holiday season.
