Welcome to Mindfully Frugal Mom’s Holiday Gift Guide! This is a sampling of many products and services that I have enjoyed and recommend. You may notice that several of the items are local, handmade, or both. I am making a conscious (mindful?) decision this year to patronize local and/or handmade companies. I hope you enjoy this list. Make sure you read all the way to the bottom, where there will be a giveaway for some of the items you see!
Trees for a Change – Your personalized Tree Gift includes a native tree planted in an endangered US forest. Starting at $35.
The Dark Path: A Memoir – A new favorite book by a local (to me) author, I read it cover to cover and highly recommend.
The Dollop Book of Frosting: Sweet and Savory Icings, Spreads, Meringues, and Ganaches for Dessert and Beyond – another local author. Who doesn’t like cupcakes?
