There’s no reason that your Christmas shopping at the Thrift Store should stop when it gets to presents. Here are some great options for gift-giving that will not only delight the receiver, but will make everyone feel good knowing they are an eco-friendly choice that helps support your community.
Party gifts and/or hostess gifts
These are plentiful in your local Thrift Store, but you may need to set aside enough time to take a good look through all the selves. Check out the glassware, the party platters, and pitchers and then use these fab finds to bake something like cookies, biscotti, or anything else that fits the container and deliver something special to your hostess.
Another no-fail purchase at the Thrift Store, especially children’s books like series, pop ups, crafty, board books, and coloring books. You will find lots of great books for all ages. Just about anything is available on those shelves.
There are often many options for beautiful candle holders available, and most people on your shopping list would likely love a gorgeous candle scented to their preferences.
Artwork & Picture frames
This is another great gift-giving option. Even if the art itself is not something you think your giftee would like, you can easily upcycle it into something new if the frame is right, or simply add a photo of your own for a sentimental gift. Thrifted picture frames are a great option to help save the cost of new pictures frames, which can be very expensive, and are perfect gifts for grandparents when filled with grandchildren pictures.
Featured Finds Section
This section is filled with antiques, collectibles, and other incredible items that will impress your loved ones with their uniqueness — and their impact. Like all items sold in our stores, these Buy Now fab finds help us support local Salvation Army programs and services that are needed more than ever throughout the winter season.
Thinking about giving your loved ones a gift that gives back, but also want to give them something to spend on themselves? Do both with a Salvation Army Thrift Store gift card, where all purchases help support local Salvation Army programs and services AND fab finds abound.
To finish everything off, your local Thrift Store is likely filled with brand-new wrapping paper and other gift-packaging materials so that you can tie that Christmas list shopping up with a bow – literally! Check out this DIY gift card holder with thrifted materials!
