Well, the Happy Hubby and I were looking at our bank account and then looking at the calendar (which clearly told us it was Christmas time) and we realized that unless Saint Nicholas drops a bag of gold through our window, we are going to have to be very frugally-minded this year with gifts. :-)
Is anyone else in the same boat??
But, thanks to the many creative bloggers out there, it can be done – without sacrificing cute factor or use factor!
Here are some of my favorites (with links to even MORE great ideas)…
How Does She? hosted an amazing series last year featuring 30 inexpensive Christmas gifts for neighbors.

I loved this Refrigerated Cookie Dough gift with a tag that reads, “Thought you could use a little extra dough this Christmas.”
My other favorite idea How Does She? featured was a Paper Plate gift.
December seems to be the craziest month, why not make things easier on another Happy Home by presenting them with a package of paper plates to cut back on dishes during the Christmas season?? :-)
The Dating Divas shared this Twizzler gift idea with a tag reading, “Twizz the season to be jolly!”
I so enjoy a good pun!
How about a whisk filled with Hershey’s Kisses and a tag that reads, “We WHISK you a Merry KISSmas!”

This idea from One of a Kind Gifts makes me laugh out loud!
Give a box of Ding Dongs to the Happy Home next door to yours. Attach a note that reads, “Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas from the Ding Dongs next door!”
Okay. I think I can stop blogging now because the creativity has reached its maximum of amazing-ness with this Hand Santa-tizer from Paper Jewels.
A plate of brownies or box of brownie mix with a note that reads, “We’re going for brownie points this season!” is a super cute way to brighten your neighbors’ day.
Beneath My Dreaming Tree has this great idea!
This is probably my favorite idea yet!
A jar of salsa with an adorable tag that reads, “Merry Christmas From Your Nacho Ordinary Neighbors!” :-)
