In my family we always get every day items as gifts for special occasions. We take advantage of the deals we see on beauty products around Christmas, for example, and give those as gifts to save the recipient money on every day things. I've also done this with food and drink, buying the recipient a selection of their favorite snacks or drinks, in order to save them money. I do buy them other gifts too though, not only every day essential type gifts. Does anyone else do this in order to help save the recipient money?
