Do you need a few gift-giving ideas for Christmas that don’t cost a lot of money? Giving of time and personal resources are always excellent gifts. Here’s a few ideas: Share photos with loved ones who may not get to see the every-day growth and milestones of your family. Trade recipes. We all have at least a few tried and true passed down recipes that would make lovely gifts for family members. Write or type them on a card, including where the recipe came from and include a brief story on why the recipe is special. Make a coupon book for chores or time with family members. This can include reading a story, doing dishes, baking – really anything. Some of the things I have loved best from my girls are letters, photographs and lists of reasons I am an A-Ok Mama. Those gifts are priceless.
