Photo Gifts

What better way to show your love than with a memory etched in time. Whether it’s a custom calendar, a personalized photo book or a mug with your mug on it, photo gifts show how much you care without costing a fortune.

 

Here are just a few places to start looking for the perfect photo gift:

  • Shutterfly
  • Snapfish
  • Minted
  • Your local pharmacy or grocery store

Subscriptions

Have someone on your list with a beloved hobby or niche interest? Magazine subscriptions can be a cost-effective way to provide them with endless content all year long.

 

If the gift receiver isn’t much of a reader, consider signing them up for a couple months of a product subscription service. Some ideas include:

  • Ipsy for makeup gurus and novices
  • Barkbox for the dog-lover on your list
  • Hot Sauce of the Month Club for spicy food enthusiasts
  • And countless others for every interest under the sun

Gift Baskets

Fruit, movies, and PJs, oh my! Like subscriptions, treat baskets can be tailored to whatever your friend is obsessed with this month. Scout out your local thrift store for a basket, give it a good clean and start tossing in their favorite treats. You can dress it up with stuffing and colorful fillers or just pack it to the brim with sweet surprises. Whatever you decide (and regardless of how much you spend), personalized baskets will be a gift they always remember.

DIY Projects

Homemade coupon books may be old news, but there are other fun DIY gifts that can help you check people off the Christmas list and keep cash in your pocket.

 

Save your toilet paper rolls, organize your paints and fire up your knitting needles for these fun DIY ideas:

  • Terrariums
  • Personalized tile coasters
  • Bath bombs
  • Thread-wrapped jewelry
  • Homemade potpourri
  • Personalized ornaments

Year-Round Approach

The best way to get gifts and save money is to be thinking about Christmas year-round. Pick up all the 90% of Christmas ornaments in January. Snag a few blankets when they go on sale in June. Grab a cute beach bag when the leaves start to change in September. These items will make the perfect holiday gifts as long as you have a place to stash them until then.

 

Whatever your budget, you can find a way to show your love and spread a little Christmas cheer. And during this busy season, it’s important to remember that gifts are not nearly as important as the people you spend Christmas with.
