Fit Friday: Food, Fun and Fit for under $5.00 for your holiday shopping!

Tis the season for food, fun and fitness (yes, I said fitness!). This Friday I am sharing with you some fun finds for under five to please the foodie or fitness junkie (or anyone in between)  on your Christmas shopping list.  Less expensive doesn’t equate cheap and I think this post will prove it!

A Local Food Product. They are plentiful and affordable. This amber, sweet treasure from my state, only $5.00

Ebert Honey, Lynnville Iowa

One year magazine subscription for $5.00. Not a lie, I heard it on Elvis Duran   Cosmo, Marie Claire, Country Living, House Beautiful and more. A gift that give the whole year! FUN, huh??

Etsy art

For your foodie lover or favorite dietitian. This adorable resin charm is perfect to add to a necklace or bracelet for only $1.39.  Thanks again Etsy and Atdandelion!

Carrot Charm 

Runners car magnet, $4.00 or coasters $2.00 (buy 2 get one free!). Too cute!


A perfect hostess present. Potted fresh herbs from Trader Joe’s. Thyme, rosemary and basil are all time favorites. $3.99 average price.

Amazon. Who doesn’t love? This should always be the first stop when shopping for books, it doesn’t get any more affordable than here. Meatless Meals for Working People. New starts at less than $2.00. 


Another Amazon pic .Recipe organizer. “As well as providing ample space for writing, it also includes six handy pockets for storing tears sheets plus features an elastic pen holder. This is the perfect gift for enthusiastic amateur chefs or busy family cooks at a great price.” New starts at $1.98


One of my favorite Christmas gifts every received was a Santa salt and pepper shaker set. Getting them after Christmas to give the next year is the best route to go or look for fun non-seasonal sets to give to use throughout the year, like this cute owl set from Pier one, $5.00.  (Cute to pair with the wine I have listed below!)


Chocolate Sardines from World Market. Even the fish hater will love these!  $2.99

Mini Tabasco 6 pack. Great for packing in lunches for your spicy friends! World Market $4.99

And finally, Winking Owl Wine. Are you ready for this?? $2.99 (average price) at Aldi (The sister store of Trader Joe’s). Made by Gallo

You need to Google this wine. The reviews are really nice on this product, well for reviews of wine under $10.00 anyway! I am so intrigued by it, I’m going to buy a bottle tomorrow night! Having the owl on the label helps too, my fave! One of the reds would pair perfect with the chocolate sardines, don’t you think?

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. These are such great ideas! I think I love them all 🙂 I am impressed with the price tags too – I need to start getting organised with finding deals like these (and buying / ordering them!).

  2. Love all your finds, especially the Etsy art and the Winking Owl wine! My hubby and I served $3.00 a bottle sparkling wine from Trader Joes at our wedding and it was the best! Thanks for the fun gift inspiration Teri 🙂
