Arriving at grandparents 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!!

It's difficult shopping for members of your extended family, and the number of people makes it expensive. Worse is when the family asks you for gift ideas. Make it easier on everyone and think of group gifts that can be purchased for the entire family.
