Frugal Gift Guide: Beer Lover



Need some gift inspiration for the beer-lover in your life? You have come to the right place. Here are five ideas that are sure to please the beer loving guy in your life whether it is your significant other, dad, or brother.


This post is dedicated to helping you figure out frugal gift ideas for your beer loving friend, significant other, or father figure in your life. Those people are the best, right? I have teamed up with my wonderful and fashionable friend Fidal over at That Son of a Beach - go check out his blog  post for some Valentine's Date outfit ideas! I can't promise that he will save you money but your outfit will be on point!

Make Your Own  Them a 6-Pack - Don't let your beer lover get tired of drinking the same beer all the time. Gift them a variety pack! I have both given and received a "custom picked" 6-pack for birthdays and know this is an awesome and affordable gift idea. You can choose individual beers to build a 6-pack at most grocery stores. I usually go to World Market or Trader Joes - they have the best selection! I am planning to give this gift to my boyfriend this year for Valentine's Day (sorry if you're reading, Trav). To make the present a little more personal and fun, I purchased a wooden beer caddy from Target to put the beers in. It was originally $7 but I found it in the Christmas clearance section for a whopping $2.10 - score!

I couldn't find one that cheap but I did find one similar here.

Beer Making Kit - They love drinking beer but have they tried making it? Help the beer lover in your life pick up a new hobby. I only know a few people who have tried this and they seem to love being able to brew beer in their home bathrooms. How prohibition-esque. These beer making kits can run anywhere from $20-$100+. I found a great one here


Brewery Merchandise - If your beer lover has a favorite local brewery and does not have one of their shirts yet, this is a great gift idea and usually around or under $30. One of my favorite local breweries, Legion Brewing, has the coolest and most unique shirts. They are not available online but if you are ever in the Charlotte, NC area be sure to check them out. 

Beer Magazine Subscription - This is the gift that keeps on giving! Here are a few options I found: DRAFT, Ale Street News, and Brew Your Own. You have different pricing options depending on how many issues you would like to receive.

Beer Subscription - We all know that you can get wine delivered to your house monthly but did you know the same thing exists with beer? There are various subscription companies out there but my personal favorite is one that was founded right here in the Charlotte area, BrewPublik. They have recently expanded into other cities so could be available near you. They make it simple to "give the gift of beer." They have a few different gift options ranging from $60 to $195.

Frugal Cruising Tips

Have you ever been on a cruise? I spent last week cruising around the Western Caribbean as my first cruise adventure. It was extremely hard to get off the ship after all the fun we had! As a first time cruiser, I wasn't sure what to expect so I have come up with a few frugal tips and tricks to help you out!

Selecting a cabin: If you aren't claustrophobic, I suggest booking an interior room in order to save money. You won't spend too much time in your room unless you are sleeping anyway. If you don't think you will go crazy without a window, this is a great way to save money from the start.  Airplane Mode: When traveling, using your phone or computer is extremely expensive. In order to save money, do not sign up for a WiFi package on-board and do not use your phone unless it's an absolute emergency. If you do need to communicate with someone back home, talk to your phone carrier prior to departure to see what international packages are available for you to purchase. …

Frugal Fiancée: First Week of Engagement

Hi frugal friends! Guess what?! Last Saturday, my boyfriend of 6 (almost 7) years popped the question. I have decided that this would be a great opportunity to share some frugal wedding planning tips and tricks. In college, I worked for an event planner and saw first hand how much money is spent on weddings. After throwing away over $4,000 in flowers one night, I knew there had to be a way to cut down on wedding costs. During this wedding planning period, I am going to do my best to find ways to help you stay within your wedding budget when it's your turn. Here is the first of many in my "Frugal Fiancée" series. 

Before I start to share tips and tricks, I will summarize how the first week of this engagement has gone for me. This has been a crazy week but I am also grateful for all the positive support we have received. 

After the proposal on Saturday night (which took place in my favorite spot on Wrightsville Beach, NC), I began to tell my close friends and family. Some pe…

Frugal Fiancée: Creating Your Guest List

Y'all, creating a wedding guest list is hard. I mean, really hard. You truly do not realize how many family members and friends you have until it's time to compile a giant list of them. Here are a few things to keep in mind while putting together your wedding guest list. 

Size Matters
Travis (my fiancé) and I both imagined having a small-sized wedding. Then we started making a list and realized how many family members and friends we have. Our idea of small changed pretty quickly and eloping was heavily discussed. While it is wonderful to have such supportive people in our lives, inviting each of them to celebrate with us is impossible. If you want to have a small wedding or cut down on costs, you will have to make tough decisions about who to invite and who to (unfortunately) leave off the guest list. 

Establish Rules
Go ahead and create a few rules. Does everyone in the bridal party get a plus one? Are you only going to invite people you've talked to within the past year? Do …
