38 Frugal, Useful Gifts for Men

    38 Frugal, Useful Gifts for Men from The More With Less Mom
    This is a list of frugal, useful things to give a man. It is not pretty things, or really fun things, or the cheapest things. Many of them will save money and if you don’t want to waste money on something frivolous, or your man gets a kick out of pinching pennies, then this is the list for you.

    You can make a lot of useful and cute things, like air/car fresheners, fleece car duster, organizers, a tool roll up, hot pad, a case for his favorite gadget, fire starters, beer or wine, etc, that he then won’t have to buy.

    These item links all go to Amazon, and are affiliate links. Originally I did not have Amazon links, because I did not want to commercialize this list. But then I wanted to link anyways to show what I was talking about and what prices you might pay. And sometimes people just don’t have time to hunt around, but appreciate when I make it easy.
