Food as Gifts

December 14, 2015: Food as Gifts

Let’s face it, I know for many of you, your shopping is coming to a head this week, so we are going to be taking a look at different ways to do your shopping that are not only creative, but money-saving as well.

A popular gift over the holidays involves food, and I find I can often stretch my dollar further at a grocery store with sales and coupons that I could anywhere else. This provides a great opportunity for me to give food as gifts, whether it’s making mini angel food cakes in ramekins I bought after Christmas last year for my kids’ teachers, or even special cookie bundles for our neighbors.

This helps me keep my gift-giving budget down while still giving a special gift to people around me this Christmas.


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
