Money Saving Gift Ideas

Via the Today Show, they had a number of examples on how to save money by making memories.

Other ideas from the show include:

  • Make chocolate dipped plastic spoons for stirring in warm drinks. You can add crushed candy cane, toffee, sprinkles, anything that will dissolve. Then, cover them with plastic wrap and decorate with ribbon.
  • Decorate old vases and jars for candles with cheap jewelry and silver spray paint.
  • Make ornaments. She used styrophome balls and added old jewelry she had around or ribbon.

Anyone else have ideas for great, inexpensive gifts?

The kids and I made the spoons one year to put in with mugs they painted (from the dollar tree so cheap) and homemade cocoa mix. If you have some extra money throw in a gift card to a local movie rental place.
