Holiday Tip #6 - Personal & Practical. Handmade gifts and personal, practical presents can be both low-budget and thoughtful. Think: homemade candles and ornaments, the expensive shampoo your mom is reluctant to buy herself or the BBQ sauce your dad didn't know he needed.
Add an initial or name to the label of a homemade gift and voila - you have the opportunity to make your family & friends feel like you made something with only them in mind! These gifts are simple but can go along way. Happy holiday shopping!
