I have some nieces and nephews that are young adults and starting out in their apartments for their 1st Christmas celebration. Being limited with money they don't have a lot to spend on decorations.
This page contains the following solutions.
If your children are older, give them money for Christmas. Then, take them shopping the day after Christmas. They can get twice as much for the money and get anything they want for themselves. I once knew a family who had six children, and this is how they handled the holiday.

You didn't specify male or female or maybe you want to cover both. My tuppence worth:
Body sprays, bed-socks, baseball caps, snackfood, fashionable belt, costume jewellery (cheap on ebay!), homemade 'do not disturb' door-hangers, mousepads, book voucher (include a bookmark) for a reader.
Gum, Chocolate Covered Cherries & Toothpaste wrapped up in pretty paper always gets a laugh.
I'm looking for some cute Christmas gift ideas for my friends. They are teens and im broke. Any cheap things that are still cute and meaningful would really help! Maybe even homemade?!
Body scrubs and bath salts, popular gifts for teenage girls, can be made at home. Make a ginger-and-cinnamon-scented body scrub as a gift for friends. Mix 1 cup of sea salt, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, and 1 cup almond oil or olive oil. Pour the mix into small plastic bottles that can be purchased at many craft stores and wrap the bottles in Christmas-themed paper.
