What do you buy for someone who has already found the best deal on everything? After lots of searching and a little bit of deal finding of our own, we've found the best gifts for that savvy shopper in your life.
Super cute coupon organizer
If you are going to spend a lot of your time clipping coupons you might as well be fashionable while doing it. This retro-feel organizer from ModCloth will help your penny-pinching friend store, sort and organize that pile of coupons they cut and collect all month long. (ModCloth, $15)
Scrimping and saving is not always the most glamorous job but who says you can't get creative with it? This adorable piggy bank from Give Simple can be written on with chalk to remind the rest of the household what they are saving for — and to give a personal touch to the window sill where it sits, just waiting to be filled with change. (Give Simple, $24)
Gift certificate to online savings
Who doesn't love a good flash sale? That deal-finding friend in your life probably never pays full price for a thing. What better way to help them on their quest to find the best bargain, than by giving them a gift certificate to online sale sites such as Zulily, the mini social or Gilt? Choose your price range and buy a certificate directly from any of these online shops.
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.
