Well like many this year we are running a little low on cash. I was wondering is anyone has good ideas for xmas presents for all members of the family that wont break the bank.

  • We're in the same situation. We are going to get a family portrait done and hand out the prints for gifts. For close friends and family we'll buy some inexpenseive frames and for extended family and friends we're not very close with we'll just stick one in their card. We've done this before and have never heard any complaints! For our friends and families that have kids we'll get thema group gift like a DVD or something they can all enjoy.

  • I agree with mom of two84...a family board game or movie is a great idea maybe with a plate of homemade cookies and card

  • Our family gift this year will be a "Make your own game" kit from Barnes and Noble for family night.  I'm buying that as a family gift, and each child (I have four) gets 1 $25 dollar present and 2 books... my husband and I don't really ever buy gifts for each other, and this years presents have nothing really to do with economy we just tend to not buy a lot for x-mas and b-days.

  • I agree with the PP...my SO and I don't buy gifts for each other either and it does help out financially. I don't know if you're into black friday, but they have a ton of awesome deals that day, and if you're on a budget, it can sure help out. I plan on going to WalMart first thing in the morning and getting the DVDs they always have marked down real low...sometimes to $2 or $3 and giving those as gifts to most of the kids.
