I bought some really cute ceramic bread pans at garden ridge last year, they were like $2 each.  They are so cute I but I didn’t know what to do with them.  This year the family decided to only exchange baked goods.  Yay, I am making each adult pumkin bread or banana bread.

What’s your cooking like? As you could make food for a Christmas hamper like, cranberry chutney, mince pies etc, mulled wine 😉

Everyone is getting a box of tea. We actually bought some fun loose teas and put the tea into teabags ourselves (super easy and helpful for those who are afraid of brewing loose tea). We are wrapping the bags and putting them into little boxes with handstamped description cards. Super easy/fun/cute/inexpensive.

You could buy a candy thermometer and make homemade candy. Especially caramel and divinity. Yum! Or homemade jams/jellies (very easy).

What about a cookbook (TJ Max and Ross have cheap but nice cookbooks) and bake something in it.

I bought everyone an ornament that represented them. Wal-Mart, Target, Hallmark all have really cute stuff. And for a single ornament you can spend anywhere from $1 up.

In the past we’ve gotten everyone a bottle of their wine or liquor of choice. It went over quite well! The liquor stores often have little gift sets for around $15, which are nice.

A gift that’s always gone over well with our parents is a nice frame with a photo of us and the person receiving the gift. 🙂

If you have an Old Navy in your area they are having a sale this weekend. Pajama pants (fleece and flannel) are $8 each and fleece pullovers are $5. I went today. It was a freakin mad house but for the price, its worth it.

A lot of times I like to get books for people. It might not be original, but a well-chosen book can be a great present. I also look for coupons and search for deals on slickdeals.net or other coupon places where they have good items that are on sale at various places- mostly online.
