Christmas is kind of a depressing time for some when they don't have much funds for gift giving. If that be the case, maybe giving out cooking or some handmade items may work as well. Is Santa coming your way this season? There is also the re-gifting factor as well. You know giving a gift that you never used to some one else. Of course you need to remove any evidence that it is a re-gift such as a card or memo?! No need for the recipient to have a clue that it is a re-gifted item.

I'm not spending much this year but that's okay. For me, it's all about family and The Birthday. Plus, my granddaughter will be 3 in a few days so this Christmas will be really fun. She already begs to drive around and look at the lights on the houses every night, something I also love to do. I wish I could indulge and buy her something costly but I can only spend about $15 on her. Of course, when a child is that age you can give them a rock and they're absolutely thrilled! Childhood is so precious and wonderful.

Such a darling age. You will have so much fun with her. Children that age love anything they get. They are happy with things from the dollar stores. It don't take much to make them happy.

Christmas can be a tough time of year for many. I think making homemade items are the best Christmas gifts ever. People love getting stuff like that. I love Christmas even though money is a bit of a problem for me this time of year. I do the best with what I have.

Home made biscuits, cookies and candies are very appreciated and they cost so little. Santa surely will bring some little gifts.

I have spent quite a bit this season, as I enjoy giving. The greatest Gift has already been given though, so I have all that I need.

To each their own. Different ideas and beliefs are choices we have. Hope you have a jolly time anyway.

The obvious drawback to re-gifting is not to give it to the person who gave it to you, or to anyone else that knows him/her.

Exactly, that could be offensive. But if it's never been used....... If you know what I mean.
