100 handmade gifts under $5. There are a lot of great ideas for gifts on this site — ones to make yourself and ones to make with kids for their teachers or family members. And while some items can be made for under $5 they are not cheap or cheesy gifts that will go in the regift pile (at least I hope not). I especially like the projects using recycled materials that make gift wrapping fun (start saving those toilet paper rolls).
Matching Christmas PJs. This may not have been a time-honored tradition in your house, but it was in mine. When our kids were young I would make matching PJs which they would open as a present on Christmas Eve (much to their consternation), wear to bed, and then wear during all the present-opening activities. Now, you don’t have to make them, you can buy matching PJs for the entire family, including the dog! Run Spot run!
