Celebrations don’t require you to spend more money to make it enjoyable and memorable. Look back at your own childhood and remember how you had fun without any extra frills. Those ideas can be adopted today as well. Here are several ways that can help make any festival enjoyable and inexpensive.
1. Order a Few Gifts
Order a few online products as early as you can. The customers can save a bundle on shipping and can inspect their purchases to ensure there aren’t any problems with it in time to return it and look for something else if there are.
2. Do a Gift Exchange
Pick the names at random and buy a gift for that one sibling or cousin rather than buying presents for every family member. If you really want to buy for each kid in the house, then ensure that there is a per-gift-limit. Each gift must cost no more than $5. As for adults, let your gift to them this festival be, the joy of your company and the great food you bring to the post-festival dinner or lunch is far better.
3. Donate to the Poor
For adults, consider giving a donation of an unspecified amount of money to their nearby charity center or to someone in need. On the day of your Festival, simply give them a card telling them that a donation has been made in their name on the auspicious occasion.
4. Take Benefit of Seasonal Services or Events
There are many fascinating activities that are focused on winter fun that can be used for your occasion as well. For instance, some neighborhoods provide residents free trolley rides around town so that shoppers can easily hop from different stores and spend their money locally on gifts. This is one of the most interesting and unique festival activities, especially for kids used to being transported exclusively by car. Just hop on the trolley and learn more about where you live and maybe check out a local restaurant for lunch or dinner.
5. Give a Gift Certificate
Rather than a traditional gift certificate, give one that offers the gift of time. For instance, draw or develop on your computer a simple certificate that entitles the recipient to one hour of baking cookies together, 45 minutes of hand or face painting, an hour of playing a computer game together, two hours help setting up their home office, four hours putting up a website for their home-based company. Let the talents and skills you have to offer to be your ultimate gift to family and friends this occasion with these amazing gift certificates.
