Give Frames as Frugal Gifts

Super-affordable holiday gift that will work for every person on your gift list (with the exception of kids).

Look through the craft periodicals (sales papers) from the newspaper, or check the craft website periodically. From time to time, they offer frames at a deep discount price. I go to Michael's and when the discount is offered i grab about 10 to 12 frames that cost about $4 on sale for a very large (14x18 inch), and also smaller sizes.


Every one can use a frame, and are happy with the gift, while you only paid around $4 or so for the nice size one. Makes great wedding gifts, holiday gifts, even birthday gifts. A never-fail gift at a great budget-friendly price.

Check out the dollar stores if you want to buy picture frames. I've found some nice ones there--only $1.

I think this is a great idea; however perhaps not every one enjoys framed photos setting around. I see so many brand new or almost new frames at garage sales. Maybe some people just have too many or get tired of them.


I think teachers get too many frames and then sell them off. I myself then take advantage of nice frames for cheap at the garage sales. I love having framed photos of my family as decor items.

I have so many gifts to give, to people of all ages. I buy picture frames, silver, brass, wooden, leather, etc when they are on sale. I always have a gift on hand. This saves shopping and paying the regular price.
