Christmas Shopping on a Budget

Americans might be scaling back their holiday spending due to the economy, but that doesn’t mean that your holiday needs to suffer.  At Coppin’s Gifts, we have a few tips for you when it comes to getting your holiday shopping done without breaking the bank.  After all, the holidays are supposed to be about relaxing and enjoying family—not stressing out about money.

You might consider doing a sort of Secret Santa exchange.  Everyone draws the name of a family member and purchases a gift for them.  This means that everyone gets a present, and everyone gets to participate.  We have many great gift ideas at to get you started.

You could also choose only to give gifts to the kids.  Extended family members can only give gifts to kids under 18.  Pillow Pets and Webkinz are great ideas.  This also creates a sort of rite of passage when kids reach 18.  They switch from receiving gifts to giving gifts.

Another thing that some frugal-minded gift-givers do is to set the price limit at around $20.  This ensures that everyone is spending around the same amount of money on holiday gifts.

No matter how you decide to do your gift giving this holiday season, keep Coppin’s Gifts in mind for the best and most thoughtful presents.  We’re sure everyone will love whatever you pick out!
