Walmart announced that it is offering every day low prices and select savings on many of the food ingredients necessary to create personalized homemade baked gifts for less than $5.  The retailer is helping families stretch their holiday budgets, as many shoppers plan to give tokens of appreciation to extended family, friends and co-workers this holiday season.
