Our favorite Holiday is coming up….. You guessed it, Christmas! The spirit of giving and joy is spreading in the air and all we want to do is either get gifts or give gifts. If you are one of the amazing people who like to give back to their loved ones here are a few amazing Christmas gifts all under $20. Some of us need to be on a budget, am I right???

 

CHRISTMAS BASKET

*This is a holiday favorite that can be given to a friend, parent, sibling or significant other*.

If you hit up your local dollar tree you can get: (all for a dollar)

-(fuzzy socks, candle, Christmas Chocolates ,Christmas Hat, Christmas cookies, Hot cocoa, Mug, Marshmallows, Christmas card, Bucket)

You can add your own special glitz to it by adding decorations to the bucket or customized gifts from other stores

 

MASON JARS FILLED WITH CANDY

*This is something you can buy for a friend sibling or even teacher*

Go to your local dollar store and buy however many glass jars you need

If it is for 1 person then get the big size bars but if you are making like 3 or 4 Christmas jars, buy the small candy bags that can be shared with everyone!

(snickers, mini candy canes, Hershey kisses, gummie lifesavers, m&m’s, reese’s, Swedish fish, lollipops)

You can even decorate the jar to look like a snowman or reindeer by painting it the color and adding little customized things such as eyes, antlers buttons noses or anything!

 

Homemade bracelet with charms

Now if we want to move more with a meaningful approach then a heartfelt and homemade bracelet is the way to go. This may be a bit costier but the budget should still be around 20-30 bucks.

I don’t know the exact prices but you would need:

(beads, string, charms, and other accessories you want to add)

The prices honestly would depend on how much you get and what type of things you get. Or you can simply buy a bracelet. Many stores such as rosss, Walmart Burlington, target all  sale cheap bracelts or necklaces that are meaningful for a bestfriend, significant other or mom for just under $20.

 

CHRISTMAS LETTER/CARD WITH MONEY

Sometimes we just want to play it safe or be simple what better way to do by getting a card or making a letter. We all appreciate a nice and heart-warming words so make your special words with a few bucks of cash a Christmas gift this year!

You can either buy a beautiful Christmas card or Make one using the creativeness that lies in all of us.  Or you can write a long meaningful letter that they will cherish with all their heart. Add some cash so they can choose their own gift and personalize everything however you want!

 

DISCLAIMER: DON’T SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY ON GIFTS WHEN YOU CAN BUDGET. BE APPRECIATIVE AND REMMEBER THAT GIFTING ISN’T TO SHOW OFF BUT TO SHARE JOY
