Remember what the holiday season means to your family. I know that as a parent you want to get everything on your child’s list or you may overspend trying to get that perfect gift for family or friends. A women told me a story about her grandma box. She says that her grandmother is on a fixed income so all year long she has a box that she fills with canned goods, toiletries, cleaning supplies and health and beauty items. Her grandmother looks forward to this box every year. When I teach my classes I hear many stories of people who have gotten laid off from their jobs or something has happened leaving them in a bad situation. A woman told me she felt terrible she couldn’t go to the store to buy presents but what she did get for everyone was a stocking filled with lots of personal grooming items plus other daily use products. The stockings were the hit of the morning, everyone was so excited going through all the items she said it was such a good feeling.  One holiday memory I have is baking cookies with my mother and putting them on platters to give out as presents. It was a gift that took time but not a lot of money but everyone waited for those cookies. If you have a large family try to do a gift exchange rather than asking for members of the family to buy gifts for each and every member of the family. In a gift exchange, each member of the family draws a name out of a hat and then only buys a gift for that specific person. It is also perfectly reasonable to share the cost of a gift with a friend or relative. The recipient won’t mind if the gift is from one or two or more people they will be happy they got what they wanted.  Don’t forget to use the talent that you have. If you are a knitter people would love to receive a scarf or mittens. Remember isn’t the price of the gift it is the thought that goes into it.
