If you're tight on a budget, try organizing a Christmas dinner or a pot luck -- this beats eating out as that can become costly depending on the size of your family. It's also a great way to spend some quality time together, which is what matters most. Another great thing you can do is get a gift for the family, like a personalized family ornament. We have one of these (http://www.ornamentsandmore.com/familymembers.aspx) hanging in our house and it's a daily reminder that family and togetherness are the most important in life!
"Whole Family" Gift Suggestions?
|7/21/12 1:36 AM|
If you REALLY want to stop procrastinating and leaving things to the last minute.... you could buy all of your gifts in bulk... ahead of time. Provided that you have that many housewarming parties to attend and that frequently. (Probably not.) I'm a Realtor, so it makes sense for me to do this though. Perhaps shopping online for the gift is a great option because you don't need to leave your house (you can't wait till the last minute though, because it takes time to ship!! but do it once and you won't have to for the rest of the... year?). It's what I like to do.... and I buy, like I said in bulk. (If you're wondering where I do such a thing, it's on LBMgifts.com. Check the home section... but they also have a lot of other gifts.)

This may be an older post, but these are some really great ideas! I especially like the certificates for cooking class or maid services. Really creative and unique. I am a Realtor so I usually do all of my house warming gifts at once (yes, I am cheating). I'm all for ease and efficiency, so this usually means shopping online. My go to site is LBMgifts.com -- they have a home section as well as other items that are great for house warming gifts. Next time, I think I'll pick up a bunch of certificates too to "spice" things up a bit!
