11 Easy Handmade Christmas Gifts Under $10

“ ‘Tis the Season” doesn’t have to mean weekends at the mall and all that conspicuous consumption. Instead of battling for doorbusters, standing in line and wasting money of stuff no one needs, consider making thoughtful handmade Christmas gifts under $10 that won’t require you to try to get approved for a credit card increase.

Gift giving can be a way fun and rewarding experience for both you and those on your gift list when you get off the holiday treadmill and instead make simple handmade gifts. It is the thought that counts and that is certainly the case with these simple ideas for Christmas gifts under $10.

This holiday season, remember to be present because the holidays shouldn’t be about the presents, but should be about spending time with your family, de-stressing and making cookies!
