Christmas Gift Ideas on a Low Budget

Christmas is just around the corner, but how do you buy gifts for friends and family without creating a financial burden for yourself in the New Year? In this time of recession, when job uncertainty is the new norm, use some imagination and flair to enhance low-budget gifts and enjoy the season of giving without breaking the bank.

Christmas Gift Baskets

Dressing up a small gift with the use of a basket provides an instant impact for the recipient. A simple present becomes grandiose with the visual effect of a well-decorated basket. Scour your local thrift stores and second-hand markets to pick up high-handle baskets for pennies. Spend a couple of dollars on a reel of floristry ribbon to create bows and ribbon curls for each basket. Buying floristry ribbon is an inexpensive way to create a variety of decorations that make the gift look professionally presented. Shred Christmas wrapping paper to half fill each basket. Position your gift, such as a box of chocolates, in the center of the basket. Arrange two or three budget-priced Christmas gift boxes of crackers or cookies around the gift. Sprinkle a couple of handfuls of single-wrapped toffee or sweets, from a low-priced packet, into the gaps between the gift, cookies, and crackers. Add two mini-sized chocolate candy bars from a multipack to give another dimension to the basket. Spiral a length of ribbon around the handle. Center a multi-looped bow on the top of the handle to complete the look.

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

When you’re not sure what to buy, a gift basket for Father's Day can be an excellent option. 
Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.
Personalization of Father's Day Gift Baskets
Father’s Day sport themed gift baskets come in a wide variety of themes, from fishing and hunting to horses.

Make it Personal: Why Your Mom Will Love a Mother's Day Gift Basket

What do you usually give your Mom on Mother's Day?
Flowers or candies might seem the obvious choice, but could you think of something more memorable to show the special lady in your life that you care? Even for the Mom who's 'got it all,' a Mother's Day gift basket is the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

If your Mom is a foodie, then choose a gourmet Mother's Day gift basket, or if she's a keen gardener, then a gardening themed gift basket will be a perfect choice. You can also find pampering gift baskets, gardening gift baskets, and m…

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
