Most of us enjoy the joy of giving over the holidays but it can be oh so easy to get caught up in all the magic and temptation that is all around us this time of year and end up spending more than anticipated!
However, Christmas doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It's the thought that counts after all! Here's a little inspo for thoughtful pressies that needn't break the bank!
Make your own
For crafty folk, making your own gifts is fun and will get you into the festive mood for sure! And your recipients will truly appreciate the care and effort that has gone into your handmade treat for them. Bake some cookies or cakes, or homemade jams and chutneys; or if you love to crochet, there’s some great fast and easy to make ideas here https://crochet.life/35-fast-and-easy-crochet-gift-ideas-anyone-can-make/
Why not add a custom label to your homemade gift for that special finishing touch!
White Elephant/Secret Santa gifts
I guess we’re all familiar with the concept and it really makes sense. Agree a price per gift that suits you all and pull a name out of a hat so you know who you’ll be buying for. You can even make a game of it https://www.whiteelephantrules.com/ If you need some ideas for your gift, check out this collection

“But I did know that nobody ever asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Had any adult with the power to fulfill my desires taken me seriously and asked me what I wanted, they would have known that I did not want to have anything to own, or to possess any object. I wanted, rather, to feel something on Christmas Day.” — Toni Morrisons
