Whatever your mindset is when it comes to gift giving, I’ve for you covered with affordable ideas for everyone on your list!

How to be a “good gift giver”…
The trick to being a good gift giver is to pay attention to people.
I keep a note in my phone for every single person in my life and when they mention something, I write it down. Example: "Oh i've been looking for a good thing to hang on this wall" or "I'm having trouble picking out ___" or “I saw ____ and loved it!”
Pay attention to little things people mention throughout the year, and write down ideas to turn it into a thoughtful gift! That way, when it comes time to give gift, you have a list you can reference.
I've heard it said "The best gift is something someone wants, but would never buy themselves" and sometimes the most practical gifts are the BEST gifts!
I've also included a BONUS gift for each category which is something thoughtful and/or free you can give to the people you love. Maybe it's in addition to a gift, or maybe it is THE gift. Gift giving is a way to show people you care, and these thoughtful gestures can mean more than material things ever will.
