4 Inexpensive Christmas Gift Idea If You’re on a Budget This Year

This year has been crazy to say the least and like many, hauling out the big bucks to find great Christmas presents this year is just not in the budget. Here are my top four inexpensive Christmas gift ideas that will sure bring joy to all. 

1. Bake

 Giving baked goodies to the ones you love is a gift everyone will appreciate and enjoy. Plus, it won’t break the bank as you probably have the essential ingredients already in your pantry. It gives you chance to be creative and the recipients are sure to love the delicious treats. 

2. Frame a photograph

This gift idea is simple and thoughtful. Picture frames are low-cost, and you can customize the frame to your liking with a little DIY project. You can even write a special message on the back of the photo to make it a gift they will cherish forever. 

3. Make a sugar scrub

Everyone loves a spa day, and a sugar scrub allows the chance to gift someone that spa day at home. All you need is granulated sugar and olive oil and for extra relaxation bonus you can add in your favorite essential oil. This gift is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. 

4. Donate in their name

Instead of spending the money you do have on trying to find the perfect gift, you can donate in their name to their favorite charity. It is great way to help someone in need during the holidays and is sure to bring joy to all parties involved.
