  • I keep an eye out for bargains all through the year. I love to find the mini peppermint grove candles for $9.95 at TK Maxx or some beautiful stationery. Also homemade cookies are always a huge success

  • Lindt normally have $10 chocolates at Christmas at Safeway and Coles on special.You can’t go wrong!

  • candles, a nice inspirational plaque, name cup, pamper pack

  • There are some decent cartons of beer around the $40 mark. There are 4, 6 packs inside and a six pack of beer is a present plenty of blokes like to receive. This time of the year liquor stores bring in tubs of mixed nuts and snacks that are under $10. Tubs of Malteasers and M&M’s are on special as well. You can make your own gifts of shortbread or rocky road and wrap up in Christmas cellophane.

  • Chocolates, homemade baking including things like rum balls, fudge, cookies etc.

  • I make homemade biscuits with coloured m&m’s. Always a big hit

  • Woolies have small Darrel Lea Rocky Road for $1 at the moment. I’m going to pair that with a Coles gingerbread man and my SIL & BIL’s are done. Also some seeds & pots wrapped up will do my in laws and parents.

  • Sweets and baking Homebase goods, gingerbread sweats a pannetone?

  • Liquor chocolates
    A plant or maybe flowers

  • The kids love making a christmas tree decoration or making a tea towel which they decorate with fabric markers. I also usually whip up some treats (cookies, chocolates etc)

  • I make my own candles to give out as lovely handmade Christmas gifts, I am also going to decorate some plant pots this year as I have been taking cuttings of my plants and potting them all year and I think these will make a lovely personal cheap gift

  • I like to spend an afternoon cooking, then make gift parcels. Chutney, jam, or cookies.. Whatever you can cook is a bit different than the usual gift. Just make a cute label and add some gift ribbon.

  • pot plant, baking or something home made (soap, candles, body scrub etc)

    I try to stay away from giving ‘stuff’ as I don’t like receiving it.
    If generally try to give something that the person can enjoy and use and then they don’t have it taking up space in their house.

  • I like to bake shortbreads

  • Some Christmas cookies, a stollen, a panettone or pandoro.
