I sure hope you've found your nearby Bountiful Baskets coop location by now. If not, review this older post for details. If you can your own, they often have cases of fruit or vegies at a low cost, in case your garden doesn't support a favorite item.
Just imagine how nice the Christmas basket will be!! Being frugal doesn't mean a life of deprivation. It just means embracing and living a process that allows you to have a bountiful life without having to sell your soul to get it!
