Draw names and buy gifts - It is very difficult to buy gifts for each and everyone when the family is a large one. This problem can be solved by this name-drawing tradition for gifts. This concept popularly known as 'Secret Santa' involves drawing names of 'who is going to buy a gift for whom' from a hat. It ensures that each person has to buy a gift for another person and nobody has to spend a lump sum money.
Gifts for kids - While thinking of buying gifts for a large extended family it has been proved to be a better idea to buy gifts for the members under 18 only. Kids are the happiest persons in this world during this festive season. They love almost anything as a gift. Make them happy and the rest of the world will become happy for sure.
Make a low budget for each gift - Make an affordable budget for each gift before shopping so that you do not need to worry about 'will it be possible to save something after buying gifts for all?' A low budget Christmas does not mean you are appearing to be "cheap". It makes you more creative to gift your special persons something exclusive.
Books - Not a bad idea for this festive mood. If books match someone's taste, you can gift him or her a nice one. A book with a gift receipt is no doubt a wonderful idea for avid readers.
Make your gifts at home - Put your creative side to work. Spend some time to be surprised what excellent you can do. Choose anything like photo albums, cookies, quilts, custom-made CDs and etc. etc.....just give yourself a push and you will come up with some more new gift ideas for a low budget Christmas.
It is not necessary to spend hundred or thousand dollars to buy a gift for someone just to show how much you love him or her. To show your real care just be a little personal.
Wish all of you a very very Happy Christmas :)
