- Always, always, always make a list! I can’t tell you how many times I didn’t make a list and would end up missing someone, but buying someone else like three things! This will just cost you money, especially if you forget to return items.
- Throw out the idea of a Christmas exchange to your extended family. So as families get bigger, buying everyone a gift can get really expensive. A gift exchange is a cheaper alternative and still fun because you get to buy (or make a present) for someone.
- Do something for someone else as your gift. Offer to babysit someone’s kids or offer to come over and cook someone a meal. I can think of tons of couples who would rather get a night off from the kids to enjoy a movie than a gift they may never use.
