Stretch Your Dollar This Holiday Season

Stretch Your Dollar This Holiday Season

(NewsUSA)- The holidays are around the corner, and gift ideas are in high demand. From family and friends, to teachers and neighbors, the right gift can make each person feel appreciated this season. You don't, however, have to break your budget to bring holiday cheer to the people in your life.
This season, look for bargain buys at stores, such as Dollar General, that you can personalize and make into unique gifts for the people on your list. Consider these great gift ideas for those on your list and stay on budget:
The holiday mug basket-Find a holiday-themed mug and fill it with individual packets of hot cocoa and marshmallows, and wrap the entire package in clear cellophane. Tie with a bow, and you have a gift that's sure to send warm wishes to your friends this season.
Forgo the wrapping with a tin-Select a decorative, holiday-themed tin to fill with customized treats. Whether its candy, homemade sweets or even bath products, you can fill the tin with whatever your recipient will enjoy.
Opt for sweet treats-Large or small candy canes decked with festive bows make great stocking stuffers or the perfect little gift for coworkers or classmates.
Cook up an idea from scratch-For the chef on your list, create a dry version of a favorite soup or cookie recipe. Combine the dry ingredients, such as flour, sugar, noodles or chocolate chips, into a clear jar. Adorn the jar with a bow or small kitchen accessory, and attach the recipe.
Homemade treats-Share the taste of your kitchen with others by giving culinary delights on festive, decorative plates or in jars. Fill the plate or jar with a dozen cookies or baked treats, wrap in plastic wrap and adorn with a festive bow.
Serve up a unique gift-A cake plate and server make the perfect hostess gift. Bake a friend's favorite cake and present it on a decorative plate, along with the server, wrapped in a festive bow.
Adorn your gifts-Christmas ornaments are the perfect accessories to any gift. Use one to put the finishing touch on a wrapped package, or give as stocking stuffers.
