Christmas is one of the happiest times of the year for a lot of people. But it can also be one of the most stressful times. I know for myself, the thought of Christmas both excites me and makes me want to burn my credit credit card bills and forget it even exists.
Why does it have to be this way?
Christmas should be all fun and games, so if the thought of Christmas stresses you and your bank accounts out, here are the tips and tricks you need to make it through the holiday season in one piece!
Gift giving doesn’t have to be about spending a lot of money on new gifts. There are a ton of different ideas you can use to make your gifts for people instead of buying them something.
Here are some ideas of gifts you can make for people:
Secret Santa Gift Exchange
Secret Santa is a great way to save on Christmas Gifts. You’re only responsible for one person and you can set a budget so everyone only spends what they’re comfortable with. This is a gretat way to do gifts for your work, friends groups, or even family!
Host a Potluck Christmas Dinner
Hosting a potluck dinner is a really fun way to get everyone involved and splitting the cost. If you have ever hosted a dinner before, you know how expensive (and how much work!) it can be to serve a large group of people. By sharing the work load, you are also sharing the overall cost of hosting. You can ask everyone you invite to bring a dish of their choice which will not only ensure you have enough food for everyone, but also give you a great variety of meals.
The thought of Christmas shouldn’t stress you out. By being resourceful you can still enjoy the holidays and not feel overwhelmed by the amount of money you have spent.
