Cheap Christmas Gift Ideas don’t have to break the bank!
Don’t get caught in the hype of keeping up with everyone else when purchasing gifts. Sure…you want to make it special, but there’s no reason why the Christmas gift you buy can’t be economical and special. The key to not breaking the bank is stay away from making purchases using your credit card – interest & fines can add to the total cost.
If you’re in need of some ideas to make your dollar stretch further, then these Cheap Christmas Gift Ideas are for you:
Gift Certificates – these have always been one of our popular choices during the holidays. McDonalds & Subway are at the top of our list. Subway is limited in its offering, but is great for teenagers & college students. McDonalds is good for children of all ages with its offering of burgers, fries, ice cream, & more! $5.00 dollars goes a long way and they also make great Christmas Stocking Stuffers.
Gift Baskets are the ultimate in cheap gift ideas. My wife and I have used these for years – best of all you can customize them for anybody and any occasion! One of our favorites we put together is Movie Night Basket (DVD or coupon for free rental, popcorn, drinks). You can even customize these even further like man movie night, romantic night, family night, kid’s night, etc. Other ideas for gift baskets are coffee lovers, candle lovers, tea lovers, etc.
Giving coupons – make your own homemade ones that say stuff like you’ll mow the lawn, babysit, bring breakfast in bed, give a back massage, foot massage, or whatever your imagination can think of…ideas like this are limitless and most them only cost a little time! You can easily create some printable coupons using Microsoft Word or some other program and then place them in a nice Christmas card.
