Easy Tips To Save Money On Christmas Present

  • 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

Hope you enjoyed these cheap Dollar Store gift ideas & tips!
