I like to make my gifts, when possible. I usually pick one gift to give to every adult (kids generally get books or magazines). One year it was cookies and another year candy. and bath items. They haven't disowned me...yet. This is especially effective if you have little kids (I think.) When they make gifts for the adults, it seems to be really appreciated.

Another good idea is the gift exchange: one person gives to only one other person at Christmas. A friend with a big family does this, and it reduces costs.

Your "get-prepared" idea is the best I've seen, I am going to try to implement it TODAY! Indeed, although I am very frugal, obligatory gift-giving can be a giant budgetary sinkhole. And my husband is very visual.

Thanks! You made my day!
