Tips For Gift Giving On A Budget

THINK USEFUL: Give yourself the comfort of knowing your hard- earned cash won’t end up in the regifting or trash bin by ensuring the gift you give fits into one of the following categories: something of need, something to wear, something to read, or something wanted.

SURF SAVINGS: Save time and the cost of traveling by taking advantage of deals, comparison shopping, and free shipping online. Sites like Amazon can help you find great deals, offering a wide array of sellers, and free delivery over $35.

GIVE EXPERIENCES: Instead of buying individual gifts for each member of the family, purchase an experience that everyone can enjoy together. There is nothing better than togetherness during the holiday season.

GIVE MEMORIES: You’ve been capturing memories all year long, so why not creatively turn those memories into something that truly will last. Whether you want to choose one photo to frame or compile them all into a beautiful photo-book, guaranteeing it will be something to love.
