When you’re young and on a budget, The whole Christmas season can be one big stress-fest. I have a word document on my computer with everyone I have to buy gifts for. In italics I write ideas, In regular type I write purchased items, and then when that person is finished, I grey out there name. Doesn’t that seem so complicated?
It’s because it is. I have to start shopping early in the season to be able to afford gifts for everyone in my family and still be able to pay the gas bill on time. And I’m sure it’s like that for a lot of young people around the holidays. You show everyone you love them by spending $20-50 on a trinket that reminds you of them, or clothes you think they would pick out for themselves.
I get gifting. I love Christmas. But it doesn’t have to be so bland and depressing for you on the giving end. So clear out the cobwebs in your wallet, this year, your going to go the homemade gift route!
