Get a Top 12 List of Christmas Gift Ideas

This 2013 Christmas season, there will be plenty of deals going on since the economy is down but not a lot of people are going to be buying much because either they've lost their job, their pay check got cut, bills piling up, etc. You can still give great gifts on a small budget and I don't mean, socks, ties, or arylic scarves! Here is a list of good low price Christmas gift ideas.

  • You can either buy the cookies at the store in a tin or make them yourself. I think the best would be make them yourself if you're a good cook and decorate a nice basket to put them in. You can make butter, oatmeal, and peanut butter cookies. Just wait and see how the person you give it to face light up with join!

7. Give Christmas Music CDs

  • If you know what type of music the person likes then you can buy them a CD. If you don't, then you can give them a nice Christmas CD for them to play at Christmas parties, around the Christmas tree, etc. Some people don't listen to CDs anymore and buy their music online, so another great idea is to give them a iTunes gift card.

      I totally support not going into debt for the Holidays! There's always a way to either make a thoughtful gift or buy one that is big on sentiment but little on cost.
