'Tis the season of giving! At Grocery Outlet, we like to think you can give more, when you spend less. And we're here to help! This week we are talking about budget-friendly gift ideas for those special people on your list. Here are some fun gift ideas, perfect for teachers, neighbors and co-workers. And don't forget those gracious party hosts and hostesses that deserve some holiday love too. Edible gifts
We love giving edible gifts because they don't become clutter or require a gift receipt for returns. Last year, we posted some simple recipes for edible gifts
created by food blogger Amy Sherman at Cooking with Amy
. And here are some delicious ideas to add to the mix: Go Nuts.
Fill a decorative vase with nuts for a classic salty snack. Consider layering nut varieties with dried cranberries and yogurt-covered raisins for a dash of red and white. Adorn with decorative ribbon and a tag that reads, “Go Nuts this Holiday!” Santa's Trail Mix.
Fill a large mason jar with layers of mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, dried cranberries, peanuts, granola and cereal. If you're feeling ambitious, you can add these darling Santa Hats
made with Bugles and red Candy Melts. Recipe

If you're strapped for time, a bottle of wine is the perfect gift to show your appreciation to the gracious hostess. Just add a pretty ribbon and gift tag, or write a festive note directly on the bottle's label. Pop in to your local Grocery Outlet's Wine Department and you're guaranteed to find a great selection of quality wines at bargain prices. In fact, they're such a bargain you can get yourself a bottle too!
So go ahead and give yummy gifts galore! Happy Holideals from Grocery Outlet!
