The Holiday season is one of great excitement and meaning. It’s synonymous with family, joy, thoughtfulness, and let’s face it, lots and lots of shopping. In fact, some people get a little pulled down during the Christmas season due to shopping so much that they end up in the red financially. Others may have plenty to put toward their gift selection, but find that too many options and not enough insight on what to buy causes too much stress for the process to be enjoyable. So what if we could kill two birds with one stone, and have a plethora of gifts that cost nearly nothing while packing an extra punch in the sentimentality department? We absolutely can! In this article, we will discuss just how to save money on your Christmas gifts while adding a special touch to each and every one you give.
The best way to save money on your Christmas gifts is simply to make them yourself instead of shipping out directly to the store to fill a cart. This can take up a little bit of time, so make sure that you have an afternoon or two to spend on crafts and DIY magic. But if you are ready to put in some effort and put on your creativity cap, you can whip up tons of excellent presents using materials you probably didn’t realize you have laying around your home already.
So what are some great Christmas present ideas? For the tea lover, tea jars to store bags make a perfect and thoughtful gift. What about that bookworm on the list? Handmade bookmarks are simple and super customizable. Here are some Alice in Wonderland bookmarks I made a few years back if you are in need of some inspiration. Presents don’t have to break the bank or be overthought to be special and full of meaning.
This holiday season, sit back and relax and save some money on your Christmas gifts. You will be sure to enjoy the time with your loved ones more than you thought. Happy holidays!
