I am terrible when it comes to gift giving. Even when I was younger, I didn't get my siblings many gifts on their birthday because I never knew what to get them. Then I would always feel bad because they would all give me gifts even though I hadn't given them anything. (When I got older and moved to the States [we used to live in Nicaragua] I did send them all gifts to make up for that ) When it comes to my wife and I, we find that most of the time, we don't really need or want any...

So very true about the gift being meaningful or its a waste of money. Thank you for your input. My husband and I don't really do gifts that much. Once ever couple years and that's and it's some thing one of us has been wanting for a long time

I do budget for gifts & include a rough amount for birthday parties that my kids might get invited too. I do also buy certain items when I find them on sale that I think will be perfect for someone on my list. My hobby is entering contests, so sometimes I use the prizes as gifts such as Lego & Playmobile for kids bday gifts, spa gift card for my mom, restaurant gift cards for anniversary date, etc. It helps the budget!

@Nicole what kind of contest do you do to get gift cards. I do 2 different ones. But 1 you can do different things on it to make money. The other is survey which I just started you can get free things and you can get paid with pay pal amazon and some other gift cards.

For the adults in my family, I send a family Christmas package. Every year, I select a theme and then make at least two Christmas ornaments. For example, this year, I made BEAR ornaments. I included bears made of pipe cleaners, bears made of felt and bears made of sea shells. For this year, the theme is a FOX. I am still working on ideas at this point. I have done a felt fox and am playing with an old clothes pin fox idea and the third hasn't been decided yet. Every Christmas, the kids all...

I save for and budget for Christmas, but really, since everyone's Birthday is Nov and Dec, I use that for birthdays as well. I'm not an extravagant gift giver, but I do pick up things throughout the year if I see something that would be perfect. I keep the cash in a safe so i can access it as I need to.

Do you budget in for gift?

Bonnie Squires ·
i was wondering if any one budget in for birthday,Christmas or any other gifts? All so do you buy things on sale or buy gifts all year round. If i can get a good deal I'll buy a gift ahead of time. Like now the dollar store having 70% and 90 % off different things. Some things I can get for my grand kids now for birthday and Christmas gifts. Which doesn't cost much. Most things are .03 cents to .10 than bigger things or name brand like froze are $1:30 or a little more. I usually just use my...
