27 inexpensive gifts to help show your appreciation
What do you get someone if you want to show you appreciate them, but if you don’t have a lot of money to spend?
If you have a lot of money, you can buy just about anything for that person. But for those of us with limited budgets, you’ll have to show that appreciation with a little creativity.
Showing your apprecation
Let’s first identify what’s essential: that we show the person who has done something nice for us how much we appreciate them. It’s not essential that the gift be big, expensive or flashy. It’s a token of our appreciation… and let me tell you, no matter how small, the person will likely appreciate the gesture.
The gift should also be appropriate for that particular the person — if it’s personal, it’s likely to mean more. So while wine is always a nice gift, if the person is into other types of drinks (such as coffee), that would make a better gift.
So take a moment to consider the person, what they like, and the times you’ve spent together.
So, let’s look at some ideas… some obvious, perhaps, but this list is meant only to spark your own ideas. (Also, the definition of “frugal” is broad here … some ideas cost more than others, and some can be made for very little.)

Something made locally, that you can probably find at a nearby farmer’s market — craft beer, honey, BBQ sauce, flavored vinegars, etc.
