You don’t have to break the bank to buy (and receive!) some great gifts this Christmas. Here are some suggestions for some great gifts that are under $50.
DVDs and Boxed TV Sets
Everyone loves watching a great movie or their favorite TV show when they’re snowed in and can just lay in front of the fire. Popular TV boxed sets include Man Men, Breaking Bad, Friday Night Lights, and Modern Family. Some best-selling DVDs are The King’s Speech, The Help, Soul Surfer, Bridesmaids, and Super 8.
They’re perfect for entertaining at your holiday party or just for playing with family and friends. Scrabble: Diamond Anniversary Edition, Monopoly: Electronic Banking Edition, and Sour Apples to Apples are games that will surely get your mind thinking and your loved ones laughing.
A Good Book
A good book won’t be hard to find this holiday season. With so many best-sellers, the hardest decision will be which to buy! Suggestions include Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, The Hunger Games Boxed Trilogy Set by Suzanne Collins, and the Guinness World Records 2012. All available, along with many others, for much less than $50.
You really can’t go wrong with these. Give away some iTunes or Starbucks gift cards and let your friends and family buy their own favorite songs and yummy coffee drinks. The card may be little, but they’ll be thanking you big time.
A Calendar or Planner
Everyone wants to be organized, and this is the perfect way to help them get ready for the new year.
A Homemade Craft
Whether it be a gingerbread house, an ornament, or a mix CD of great Christmas songs, a homemade gift is a great (and very inexpensive!) way of showing someone that you care.
A Homemade Recipe
Whip up a batch of your famous peanut butter cookies, put them in a pretty jar with a holiday ribbon and include the recipe so that your friends and family can make them after they eat them all.
Promise to babysit, wash someone’s car, take care of the dinner bill, or help a friend clean his cluttered garage…free of charge. A small gesture like this will go a long way and your good deed will be much appreciated.
