Holiday sales have already begun, but that doesn’t mean you have to rush to the store to buy the latest gadgets or fashion items for your loved ones. Instead, make a list of everyone you’d like to provide a gift for, and then spend some time considering what type of gift would be both personal and thoughtful.
Got a sweet tooth in the family? Bake them cookies or another treat! Know someone who’s always cold? Knit or crochet a beanie or scarf! If you’re not a skilled DIYer, there’s always the gift of an activity or time spent together. Arrange an excursion to a nearby park, low-cost museum, or another outing of their choice.
By skipping the store, you can avoid the strain on your wallet, and provide meaningful gifts that your loved ones will truly appreciate.
