Five pounds? Five pounds I hear you say? Yes, it can be done! So if you are watching the the pennies like me and need a Happy Frugal Christmas, then read on...
A budget of £5 per Christmas gift sounds impossible and even worse, mean, but the secret is to spend  little, but make it count! Your £5 gift will mean so much more than the amount spent if you actually take the time to think about the recipient. What does he or she like? What are their hobbies, interests, passions? Do they like roses? Are they gardeners or chocolate connoiseurs? Do they want to teach themselves to crochet? Do they enjoy baking or like old-fashioned retro sweets?
Think creatively and your gift will be very much appreciated, however little you spent on it - after all, as the old saying goes, it's the thought that counts!
So with that thought in mind, I'm going to see how many gifts for a fiver or under,  that I can come up with in the next few weeks. They may be home made or shop bought, or a mixture of both - come back and see!
