These are some fun ideas and strategies to give your friends and family an inexpensive, awesome, yet memorable gifts for Christmas!

Some Money in my Wallet, Please!

It is always the same every year. Go to the mall and plazas, walk around for hours, window show here and there, find something special, buy it, buy a few more and- whoops, now I have $2 for the dollar menu.

Before you drive aimlessly to find an open parking spot, stay at home. Have an idea where you want to buy your gifts and look them up online! Most of the time the stores have their special deals right on their home page. But, while your finding your items that interest you, compare them to other stores! You might be impressed on how much you can get for your money. For example: Bath and Body Works Body Collection, Buy 3 Get 3 Free! Or Victorias Secret Body Collection, Buy 5 for $30! See? Bath and Body Works offers more, but you could also spend more rather than Victorias Secret deal being a fixed price.

Don't forget to coupon! Search your favorite stores on Google followed by "coupons", you'll be surprised at what stores have to offer to their customers. Even if it's 10% off, it is still better than paying full price!

Getting Crafty for Christmas

Arts and crafts does not only have to be an activity for children. A little can go a long way.

1) A multi-picture frame for friends in college is always an awesome gift, filling it with past memories and a little note in one of the frames warms up any dorm room.

2) Got a skill for knitting? How about making a scarf! It is getting cold outside and having a scarf can get pretty handy.

3) Go to your local pottery place and paint some pottery! Look up your local pottery place and see if they offer pottery painting. Grab a group of friends and paint together. I went a few years ago and my friends and I had a blast painting cups for our mom and dad's.

4) Girls love jewelry and clothes, how about doing a DIY (do it yourself) necklace, bracelet, earrings, or even a t shirtfor your girl friends! Here are some links to show you how (:

Don't Forget!

A simple holiday card is super thoughtful, whether you make it yourself or buy it from Hallmarks.
P.S. Add a candy cane for a sweet treat!

Ho, Ho, Ho
Merry Christmas, everyone!
