The holidays are a time of giving, not necessary of spending as some businesses lead you to believe.
But who said gifts had to be expensive?
FOR THE MOVIE LOVER
Taking a popcorn box that isn’t used, you can add items including candies, gift cards and popcorn.
It’s simple, yet creative gift that will cost you about $20 to $30 depending on the amount of the gift card you purchase.
It also works as a last-minute gift for anyone.
FOR THE BEAUTY GURU
One can never go wrong with makeup.
If you know someone who is into all things beauty, a makeup set is just the thing to get them.
Many department stores have these gift sets already available and ready for purchase for the holiday season.
Depending on the brand and store these presents can cost around $10 to more than $50.
FOR THE CHILDREN
Children love toys. It’s rare to find one that prefers clothes over toys.
With today’s generation living and growing up in such a technological era, a video game would be ideal.
Video games or anything “Frozen” are ideal gifts, especially for those who are kids at heart.
FOR THE TECH SAVVY
Maybe you know of someone who recently got a new phone, or a new computer.
A super easy gift idea is to create your very own starter pack for them.
Add earphones, a charger and a USB cord.
Then add a case with their favorite team, artist, be- fore color and then voila, you have the perfect starter pack for that special someone.
FOR THE ‘NOT SO SPECIAL SOMEONE’
What do you get someone who you don’t know personally, say a teacher, favorite doctor or classmate?
A do-it-yourself hot cocoa mix.
For this simple and delicious treat you just add hot cocoa, marshmallows and chocolate chips to a mason jar.
Pair up the mix with inexpensive Christmas mugs and there you have it.
‘I RAN OUT OF TIME’
Although there are many gifts guides out there, this one included, many people ignore them and wait until the last minute.
In this situation gift cards are the way to go. Inside a mason car, add a toilet paper roll and fill the outside of the roll with M&M’s (green and red work best).
Then simply add money or a gift card to the center of the jar.
Simple and inexpensive enough.
