For me, sticking to a budget includes gifts for others. This doesn’t mean that they aren’t special. I always look for ideas that I can keep and turn into something meaningful for them. Now, you may be the type to think homemade gifts are tacky. This is not true for the majority of those receiving a gift. For example, my job is working with college girls and the best gift I ever received was a box of cards that they each wrote things they loved about me and our time together as well as photos.

This is my master list I’ve compiled of $10 or less gifts that I use it to think outside the box and create the best gift. Use this to create special gifts for those close to you!
