Cheapskate Tip – Gift Giving On A Budget

giftYou don’t have to be cheap to give a cheap gift.  There are hundreds of great gifts that can be purchased or made by hand for under $10.  Try wrapping your gift with a pretty ribbon or put it in a nice basket or tin.  For example, you can bake home made cookies and put them in a pretty tin with a hand written note of the recipe.   There’s a thoughtful gift that is unique, tastes great (if you’re good at baking) and won’t break the bank.  I know you’ve probably heard it before but it’s really true that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to find that perfect gift for someone.  Just be sure to put some time and thought into it and your gift will be well received.
