Need Inexpensive Christmas Gifts? It is possible to show people you care without breaking the bank. In fact, many people would say these gifts are even better.
There is a lot of people you would like to give Christmas gifts to this year, isn’t there? I understand. You have Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles, neighbors, teachers, babysitters and of course the UPS driver. I mean, if you could, you would shower everyone you know with a gift!
However, there is a little thing called money standing in your way. It is expensive to buy gifts for everyone on your wish list so what is a person to do? Get creative, that’s what.
Here are a few tips for inexpensive Christmas gifts from my house to yours 😉
:: For starters, shop sales
Sounds obvious, right? Well, let me tell you a story. My hubby and I have different opinions on the price of gifts. I love to bargain shop. Therefore, if I find a brand new KitchenAid mixer for $5, I have no problem giving the mixer to someone as a gift. Who cares if it costs $5? It is a new mixer! He feels it only cost $5 so I need to buy something else to make up for the fact it was only $5. Go figure, right? 🙂
Look, if you find great gifts for a rock bottom price, go for it! Slap a bow on the gift and give it away with joy. You got a deal and they got a great gift. Win-win.
:: Food is your friend
Put your love of baking for good use. Start baking up a storm. You can choose to make cookie mixes in a jar or a plate of delicious gooey strawberry cookies. Don’t forget Cookies and Cream Candy with only two ingredients! Baking gifts don’t cost much and people enjoy delicious baked goods. Advice? Don’t give them a plateful of untidy goods. You know, the ones where it is obvious the children have drooled, picked and touched everything. Make it clean and appealing.
:: Garden? Share your goods
We enjoy eating fresh food from our garden and others will as well! Share your salsa, canned tomatoes or peaches. They will love it.
:: Don’t forget a card of thanks
Okay, so you don’t like to bake and you don’t garden. Ya know, sometimes a simple card of thanks goes a long way. Don’t think of it as a “cheap” route. If it is sincere and heartfelt, that is the best you can do. If they don’t appreciate it, the guilt should be on them. It is the heart thought that matters.
