Finding ways to keep costs down, but also being able to purchase meaningful gifts can be a challenge


This is why I am so excited with my recent finds at Thrifty Shopper in North Syracuse and Cicero. I have recently had the best luck finding something I had never previously thought to look at: coffee mugs. When I found some like new coffee mugs at amazing prices, I wondered how I could best utilize these (without keeping them all for myself :-D).

I started to look for more mugs each time I went and ended up with a pretty fun variety. So what to do with all of these fantastic mugs? I thought about the special people in my life who might appreciate a fun coffee mug and how I could match them to their individual personality!
Here is what I found:
2 Cat Mugs @ .99 each (Cicero)

1 Dino Mug @ .99 (Cicero)

2 Rae Dunn Mugs @ .99 each (NS)

1 Teavana Mug with Strainer and Lid @ .99 (NS)

1 Pineapple Mug (Target Brand) @ .99 (NS)

I have several friends who I buy gifts for during the holiday season. One friend lives in the South – cue the pineapple mug! Another friend loves cats. And another loves tea. I am still debating on the Rae Dunn mugs and who they will eventually go to. But the Dino mug was immediately scooped up by none other than my husband. He took it to work as a pen holder!

When giving the mugs as gifts, I will likely add in a gift card for coffee, some tea bags and personalize it with whatever else might fit, such as candy, lip gloss, gum, a fun pen, etc. If you see a cute mug the next time you are at Thrifty Shopper, don’t pass up the opportunity to send an affordable gift to someone just for fun, or maybe a birthday or even a holiday!
