Easy, cheap Christmas gifts

christmas giftHere are six cheap, easy Christmas present ideas, just in case . . .

1.  Put some cookie mix in a jar.  Take a mason jar, layer the ingredients inside to make cookies, put a ribbon on it, and attach the baking instructions.
2.  Fold some $1 bills into origami shapes.  Then, if you give someone $10, it looks way cooler than just a $10 bill or a check.
3.  Make a big batch of homemade cookies.  No one can be totally disappointed by a ton of cookies.
4.  Buy a bunch of lottery scratchers.
5.  Burn a CD mix.  Older relatives and coworkers might still appreciate CD mixes, and it shows that you put some thought into it.  For someone younger, you can put it in a thumb drive.
6.  Make a photo collage from their Instagram photos, or other photos they like.  You can do it online, and have them printed cheaply at a Walgreens.  Photo printing costs have gone way down since there’s no real demand anymore.
