Need cool gifts for less? Of course! We all do! With the economy still in the dumps you may be looking for ways to give thoughtful gifts that don't dent your wallet. Some of these gifts make great stocking stuffers too. And be sure to check out the discounts!
Shootie Girl t-shirts
I first checked out this mom-led t-shirt company over the summer and was so impressed with the quality of their products. I have the Moms Rock t-shirt and I get so many compliments on it. Very chic! They are currently running a "Small Business Saturday" special for 15% off any product site-wide or free shipping. My favorite design is the Mommy and Me special. You get a Moms Rock rhinestone tee (bedazzle it with whatever color you want) and a First Grade Rocks tee for your daughter. (You can choose whatever grade you need.) Regularly priced: $35 for both but with the discount it's $29.75 or less than $15 each!
Hallmark's "Merry-Okee" microphone
Who wouldn't smile at a Christmas karaoke microphone? This super cute gift would be great for any budding songstress or maybe that aunt who always belts out the tunes after a little nip into the holiday eggnog. It's fun, cute, and comes with a song book filled with the words to seasonal songs as well as some "silly" lyrics to make the kids laugh. This gift retails for $19.95 but get $5 off with this coupon (in store only).
Febreeze seasonal candles
Candles are great gifts for a variety of people. From your kids' teachers to your good friends, anyone can appreciate a good scent. Plus, there are great ways to "dress up" your gift. (Do not just hand it to her in a Publix bag!) I tried out these new Febreeze candles and they just scream "holiday". The Cinnamon Sugar and Home is my favorite. The description says: "The warm aroma of homemade cinnamon glazed pastries mixing with the soothing sweetness of vanilla. They smell good enough to eat. Retail: $9.99 (And if you coupon, check the 10/30 P&G Brandsaver insert for coupons for these candles!)
2011 Commemorative Ornament from RitzPix.com
This pewter ornament looks like it costs much more than it does. It is a great way to remember a special event from this year...a new baby, a new house, or maybe just a funny event you happen to have a photo of. The ornament comes with a ribbon for hanging and could be a great way to build a memorable collection for your family. The ornament retails at $19.99. Spend just a little more (maybe buy two?) and get free Next Day Delivery with any order over $30.
