Budget-Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas For Those Who Have Everything, Part 2: Give Consumables!

If you're scratching your head this year trying to come up with gift ideas for those in your life who seem to have all of their needs (and even wants!) covered, we have a few ideas for you. This is part of our series running this week on Budget-Friendly Christmas Gift Ideas for Those Who Have Everything!
  • Give Consumables. Whether it's the pistachios that they're (har) nuts about or something delicious that you've tried or made recently, something tasty to enjoy and share with company is always a welcome change of pace for a gift. A budget-friendly favorite of mine in this category is a $6 bottle of our family's favorite German white wine. Chilled and dressed up with some fancy ribbons, a gifted bottle of wine could even come with some new wine glasses (like the simple and inexpensive ones at IKEA).

    You can also use coupons to get some delicious consumables this time of year, like the Lindt chocolates that frequently go on sale combined with the $1/1 coupons that come out every holiday occasion. (Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter...but if you ask me, who needs a holiday occasion for Lindt?) And the term "consumables" doesn't necessarily only apply to foods; one time I gifted my newly-married brother and sister-in-law with a huge collection of couponed toiletries and household staples -  toothpaste, deodorant, cleaning items, etc.
