Buy Family Gifts For Christmas

Rather than buying individual Christmas gifts for your cousin, her husband and each of their children, give one Christmas gift to all of them that they can enjoy as a family.


Some family gift ideas are as follows: A gift card to a local video store (include some microwave popcorn and candy); a book of passes to the movie theater; a board game appropriate for each family member's ability level; a gift certificate to a nice family-friendly restaurant; a donation in the family's honor to a charity that's important to them; a gift basket with gourmet coffee and tea, muffin mix, pancake mix and syrup, jellies and jams, etc.

You'll be amazed how much money you can save this Christmas season by giving one family gift rather than several individual gifts.

As family members, such as grandparents, aunts...etc...even the elderly neighbor, gift baskets are wonderful. They can be filled with the little things that most elderly won't buy themselves, due to limited incomes, the little ''splurches'' we call them. Box of chocolates, nice little seasonal dish towels, grocery items that make a little time special. Most of all, they love the little cards inside that say something about you visiting them during the upcoming year to do something together!!

K-Mart Clearance Centre recently had Pizza Maker Machines for $50. This is a great gift for a family as everyone gets to enjoy what is made, over & over again.

Don't forget that giving a soccer ball, basketball, or a rugby ball (maybe this one will require some internet-printed rules?) to a family can be great too--something for the family to do outdoors.
