Fantabulously Frugal’s 2009 Holiday Gift Guide

Dear Friends:

It’s with butterflies in my stomach that I present to you the Fantabulously Frugal 2009 Holiday Gift Guide, all 18 PDF pages of it.  Click here (or on the image above) to open a PDF copy of the 2009 Holiday Gift Guide.

My main goal is that some of you find this guide useful!!  When possible I researched prices to find the store selling items for the least amount of money.  Sadly, this cannot take into account any upcoming holiday sales, coupons, etc.  Some items you’ll find in this guide are luxury items and some are bargain-priced.  More than anything a gift guide should be about gift-giving inspiration – knocking down prices can always come later! 

If I’ve done my job right, this PDF is interactive, meaning you’ll be able to click on the pictures or the name of each item and be taken directly to that item on the internet.  Or you’ll be able to click on the name of the store and be taken directly to the store front.  There’s also a ranking system for each item so you can rank your level of interest.

I thought the ranking might be helpful in a few different scenarios.

Say you really like an item and want your significant other to know how much you want said item.  From the dropdown menu you can place a “Yes” next to the item, save the guide to your desktop, and then email it off to the person who will be buying you gifts.  Or if you want to browse now and shop later, the drop down can be an easy way to remind yourself of which gift ideas you liked.

If you prefer not to download the PDF and would prefer that I email it to you, no problem.  Just fill out the form below with your email address and I will get it right out to you.

I’m so excited that we have officially entered the holiday shopping season. It’s going to be a fun couple of months!

    I am loving this guide!

    I wish you weren't so good. Because of the way you have been giving me surprises and savings, I have told some friends about your site. Now I wish I hadn't told them until January so that I could live fear free that they won't be buying these items for themselves. :)
