I used to do about $20 nothing crazy,but now I give gifts to my family and not even everyone in my family only close family that I am spending the holidays with. (Cousins, family I dont see too often dont get anything). Friends, coworkers etc. Dont get anything unless it's a secret Santa type of deal.
I make my own. It's usually under $5-$10. I make my own scrubs and facial masks. I have a few beauty subs so I add beauty items I never used and redeem points for free stuff too.
With Cold/Flu season coming I sometimes give honey that has essential oils to help soothe throats and fight the cold.
I am the gift.
I see Christmas for kids. The one I buy apart from my mother in law, my husband, my kids, sister, brother and my best friend kids since she always buy for my kids apart from that nobody else. I don’t have friends it because I don’t want to but because is hard to make friends and apart from that there’s so many people who show you they real but they are not.
For people outside of family we make gifts or make goodie/treat bags. It’s a family tradition to only buy gifts for family and make goodies for everyone else. We usually spend a lot the days up to holiday cooking and baking then handing them out to everyone. Including those on the street or the less fortunate.
