Three easy holiday gift ideas that don't require a lot of time or money!
The holidays are quickly approaching, which may be leaving many worrying about how they’re going to pay for gifts. Christmas and holiday gift shopping can easily get out of control, and by the time you’re finished, you may realise that you’ve built up a lot of debt that you will need to pay down. If you’re tight on cash, but still want to give thoughtful gifts to friends and relatives, here are 3 easy gift ideas that don’t require a lot of time or money!
- It’s natural to want to buy everyone you’re close to a present, but this can be impossible in big families and with a large group of friends. Rather than buy everyone a present, consider spending quality time with a large group by going on an adventure to the beach, a park, a zoo, or somewhere else that’s local. By asking everyone to bring a food dish or a beverage to drink, you can save even more money. Make sure to look for places that don’t require a large admission fee or are free to gain access to.
- Speaking of food, you may also want to consider baking treats for friends and family. Pinterest always has plenty of ideas for cute holiday treats and even though you have to buy the ingredients, you can usually make a lot from a few simple ingredients.
- Another gift giving idea is to put your arts and crafts skills to use. You can visit second hand stores to find items for cheap to turn into truly unique gifts. Some ideas include refinishing flower vases, or bringing life back into photo frames. If you have a family member or friend that likes vintage or antique items, a slightly used gift can be appreciated just as much as a new one.
