We are not normally ones to go all out for Christmas, we have never been able to. We normally try to spend about $20-30 for each child, including stockings. Well, this year, even that is a stretch. We are not doing any gifts for the extended family, and I am trying to come up with some things we can make for them and for our own family, to add to the few things I got on clearence earlier this year. This is the place to put all of your ideas for cheap Christmas gifts and parties! Lets make a list of the best ideas on BYC!! Here are some of my ideas: Tutu for the little girls with leftover toile from my wedding (Yes I keep some things forever. 7 years ) Cape for the little boys to play super hero Cookie or soup mix in pretty jars for MIL and GMIL File Folder games for the kiddos Pillows with leftover scraps of material Homemade Bow and Arrow for little boys I do not have any good ideas for men and babies. I have been searching the Internet..... We are also planning a lot of fun easy activities for the kids to do with us, they like that better then presents anyway. I also want them to make things for their family, because they all need to experience that Christmas is about giving.
