Christmas Shopping On A Budget – Seven Cool Gifts For $20 (Or Less)
I know a lot of people who are doing the holidays on a budget, so I asked you for your suggestions on affordable, but unique, gift ideas. Everyone had great ideas! Here are seven of my favorites.
-Natasha suggested Christmas toilet paper. Cool, unique idea that basically EVERYONE can use.
-Charity suggested movie tickets and said, "sometimes it's more fun to give them a chance to do something out. It's great for people with kids - it's a date night, or someone who has everything!"
-Melissa suggested Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty. I had never heard of the stuff and had to look it up. Now, I am adding it to my Christmas list! This stuff is awesome!
-Marianne's idea was to get assorted candles from Yankee Candle. Actually, I think this would make a great gift for my son's mother.
-Misty thinks I should go shopping at 5 Below. If you're not familiar, it is a slightly more expensive dollar store where everything costs five bucks or less. There's one at Marketplace At Augusta. True! For $20 you can get at least 4 really cool gifts. I'm digging the color changing LED light bulb I got there a couple weeks ago.
-Kari suggested making a coupon book for special chores around the house. Classic, but still a great idea. Especially for the kids who need a gift for mom or dad.
-And Chris called in to suggest giving DIY bath bombs. Apparently, they are cheap and easy to make. This video shows you how:
