Free Gift Ideas


Well it’s that time of year again—when you need to think about holiday gifts.

You can’t leave it all to Santa—he’s a very busy man.

Good news.  Giving gifts doesn’t have to cost anything.  You just need to do a little creative thinking.  

Free idea number 1: Try the sentimental route for family and close friends.  Arrange to get them something that once belonged to their grandparents.  Or something they loved from their childhood.  Those are meaningful gifts.

Another approach--- offering services.  For a friend that travels, offer pet sitting. And for parents, the gift of a single night of childcare so they cango out can be worth the kid’s weight in gold.

With a little creativity, you’ll go easy on your wallet, and Santa can take a break.
