Who doesn't love a good flash sale? That deal-finding friend in your life probably never pays full price for a thing.

Membership to a warehouse store

You can almost bet that your favorite bargain shopper heads to a warehouse store to stock up on what they need most. Or maybe they are dreaming of shopping at one but can't part with the membership expense. Buy them a new membership or renew their current one to the warehouse store they love most — whether it be Costco, Sam's Club or another popular find in your area.

Subscription to a DIY magazine

Where there is a penny-pincher there is almost always a Do-It-Yourselfer. Most people who do not want to waste a single cent decide to take on all kinds of projects, rather than buy products in a store or hire someone to do the work for them. A subscription to Do It Yourself magazine by Better Homes and Gardens might be the perfect gift to give your friend the inspiration and know-how they need. (Better Homes and Gardens, $20 for a yearly subscription)
