Money Saving Quick Tip

Family Homemade Holiday Gifts

Save money by creating a fun gift for each family rather than trying to come up with something for each family member. My uncle has done this many times with our family getting us something a little bigger like games, a telescope, or a gift card. Here are some good family gift ideas:

* Indoor or Outdoor Games You can find directions for many old games online and put together your own version.

* Movies The trick is to find something the whole family will I usually go for classics or comedy.

* Park Pass to a Museum, Park, or Zoo. My aunt did a zoo pass for us a couple years in a row and what fun we had with that. Instead of big long days, we'd go for many short visits and really enjoy each section of our zoo.

* Art Supplies. What a great idea for homemade holiday gifts. My mother-in-law filled a couple sets of plastic drawers with all sorts of craft items for our family and those drawers provided hours of entertainment and many projects. Many of the items she included were recycled from around the house.
