Secret Santa Blogger Challenge: Can You Give For Under $15?
Posted By Crystal Collins On December 12, 2011 @ 2:55 pm In Frugal Living | 11 Comments
This year a couple of other blogger and myself decided to do a Secret Santa with each other, to show our readers how they can give gifts for $15 or less. Out of everyone in our group, I got to give a gift to a young guy (Frugal Finders), getting ready to go to college soon. “Oh boy,” I thought (takes a deep breath). “Okay, I can do this…”
I knew he liked Starbucks, so I snatched up a $5 gift card for him. I wanted to do a little more, but I had to stay under the $15 mark.
So I got him one of my favorite things to get for people every year. These big plush throws from Kohl’s have a normal price tag of $39.99, and they are some of the comfiest throws I’ve ever cozied up on the couch with. They went on sale for $8.99 on Black Friday. So after a coupon, grabbing some other things I needed to get and getting Kohl’s cash back, the throw cost me around $5 plus tax.
Total cost for his gift came to right under $11. Now he has a cozy warm blanket for college and, of course, coffee! That’s really all you need for college anyway, right?
If it’s turquoise, then it’s pretty much guaranteed I will like it.
These are just two ways you can get gifts for under $15 this year. I’ve got the full list of bloggers and the deals we all got coming up soon, so stay tuned!
How do you get gifts for $15 or less?
