Make a Christmas present
Did you know that you can make Christmas cards and Christmas gifts? People love to get hand crafted presents. It really shows that you care a great deal. Holiday presents can be made out of old and new materials. I love when I receive a present that is unique. Research how to make arts and crafts. One suggestion for making a Christmas present is to look around the house and see what you have lying around that you never use.
Shop in discount stores
For this year’s Christmas, you can buy presents at discounts stores and not spend a lot of money. For example, you can find great books at discount stores in your neighborhood. You can buy clothes that would normally cost a lot of money for mere dollars. I purchased four great jackets in a Goodwill store for $20. Christmas is not always about how much money you can spend. So stay out of the expensive malls and shop at your local neighborhood discount store for Christmas presents.
Give your time and services
You can really surprise someone around Christmas time with a gift certiicate offering to watch their kids or mow their lawn. When you are short of cash, you can still help other people. By making an effort to give of your time instead of money you can make a real difference in the lives of others. Focus on the true meaning of Christmas and you will find that you get more satisfaction from giving Christmas gifts than from receiving them.
