Hi everyone – season’s greetings from the road as my family and I are in Pennsylvania on a holiday trip to visit with some family.
I thought I would share a quick infographic with you guys that the folks at Personal Capital put together on alternative gifts. Some of the ideas shared here are right up my money-saving-alley, so I wanted to pass it on to you.
I am a sucker for DIY gifts and love it when my wife of kids decide to go this route. They just seem so much more special than plastic junk off the department store shelf. As you’ll see in the infographic below, many themes of DIY holiday gifts center around creating an experience versus just giving someone a “product.” If you can keep this in mind when the holidays are here (which is in just a couple of days), then you are sure to save yourself some money and create some memories that will last.
For more gift giving ideas that will save you some money, check out this other article I put together a while back titled: The Perfect Gift Does NOT Have to Be Expensive.
