There are some fun ways that you can celebrate Christmas without breaking your budget. Everyone wants to make Christmas extra special and it doesn't always require lots of money!
1. Print your own cards or send e-cards
You can print your own Christmas cards with a little cardstock, a good photo, and a color printer. Print the message you want to say to your loved ones. Another choice is to use a low-budget printing service, such as Shutterfly or Snapfish, Just register and upload a fun photo "card" created by you and your family.
2. Host a Gift swap
Host a party for friends and family in the gifting for all family members. This will reap your excellent Christmas budget savings and your family and friends will gain a new appreciation for your cleverness. Make it a one potluck dinner for even more festive things, but an inexpensive event.
3. Regift New But Unwanted Gifts
While it's considered rude to regift, it's thrifty to recycle items. Everyone has at least one gift they don't like and will never use. Make this a mandate for your gift swap. Just be sure you don't regift something one of your guests gave you!
4. Dollar Limit for Gift Swap
Another version of a family or friend gift swap if you don't want to regift, is to buy gifts for the swap. You need to limit the dollar amount to $5 or $10, with each person bringing only one gift. Make sure you give the directive that the gift needs to be funny, practical, functional, silly, old-fashioned, or some other specific theme.
5. Watch Christmas parade
Many of the towns have a Christmas parade around Thanksgiving or a week or so after. This can be a fun outing with friends and family and is free! With this idea, you can keep your family and friends connected to the community while creating great memories that don't dent your Christmas budget.
6. Play Christmas song and sing it well
Whether you join the choir at church, go caroling, or simply listen to funny Christmas songs while sitting around the Christmas tree, the music of the season is always a delightful celebration. You don't need to pay for a pricey concert. Instead, create a playlist of your favorite carols and play throughout the Christmas season. Listen to Christmas Carols In This Christmas Season.
7. Watch the Christmas tree lighting ceremony
Some towns host Christmas refreshments, such as hot chocolate and cookies. Some move inside for a holiday dance with live music. These after the event's activities are usually free or have a nominal price tag that's perfect for budget-saving holiday fun!
