The holiday season is already upon us and once again things may be a little tight with your finances. Join the club. That makes it stressful to try and buy gifts for your family and not wanting them to have a disappointing Christmas. Fortunately, there’s several ideas where you won’t spend a lot of money, while at the same time show them that you care. These are several budget-friendly gift ideas for your family this year.
Personalized Home Items
Having personalized items made for someone’s home shows the time and attention that you are giving them this holiday season. One of my favorite sites for this is Etsy. Creating fun family gifts from doormats, cutting boards, etc. These gifts can be utilized all year long.
Homemade Baked Goods
Nothing is more special than a special batch of homemade baked goods for the receiver. That’s because they know you made it with love, personally for them. Puppy chow, sweet and spicy homemade party mix, congo squares are all wonderful gift ideas for the sweet tooth in your family.
Mason Jars Filled with Goodies
How about getting creative by taking mason jars that you can decorate, while filling with anything you can think of? Are you a master of canning delicious flavored jams? Or maybe making a batch of your secret chocolate chip cookie recipe that will be much appreciated? You can put candies, small toys, and bath bombs in mason jars for the kiddos.
Create A Basket
Not only can you find baskets that you can decorate super cheap, you can also find some wonderful gift ideas at the Dollar Tree. Load up those baskets with soaps, shampoos, lotions, and body butter that will cost you right around a buck a piece.
