Tis the season. The countdown begins this weekend as we mark the days and weeks until Christmas. Got your gift ideas ready?
I don’t believe that presents are the end-all, be-all of Christmas. In fact, my family had as nice celebrations in the lean years as we have in years when we’ve had more spending money. Christmas is about Jesus.
At the same time, I think the anticipation of gifts and the joy of those gifts is a fun and tangible part of the holiday. We give gifts on Christmas unabashedly.
That said, there’s no rule that you have to spend a lot of money on gifts. Some of my most fulfilling moments of giving or getting gifts have been those that were inexpensive and often times handmade.
Today I’ve got five cheap and easy gifts that you can make this season to give to family and friends. None of them have to cost a lot of money — unless you want them to. They’ll mostly cost you some time and effort.

All of these gifts can be as easy or as complex as you want them to be. Visit the tutorials and use those as your starting point.
Time to swap ideas and inspiration for saving money and getting good values.
