One of the first tips you could follow to save your money? Do not wait until the last moment to make your gifts, instead plan your purchases early in the year and buy when prices are lowest, depending on seasonality. Think for example of buy your gifts just after Christmas for the following year.
The more resourceful among you may consider the DIY solution… And make with their own hands a beautiful little scarf, a piece of jewelry or a personalized lamp! The raw material is always cheaper than the final product and this is an opportunity to do something with your own hands.
If you have the opportunity, do not hesitate to distribute the gifts among relatives, to organize a common pot or one Secret Santa on a budget.
