While I still have a couple of handmade gift ideas for Christmas this year to post as part of my Christmas In July series, I have put together a list of Christmas Gift Ideas For Under $30, partly as a response to answer a question I received from a lovely reader, Lisa:
What do you do for presents for birthdays for adult family and friends?
I have read what you do for kids birthdays but I find that we spend a good majority of our money on gifts for birthdays or special occasions. We set an amount $30-40.00 but find it hard to come up with ideas for adults that don’t exceed the budget.
Thanks for your time
The gifts for kid’s post Lisa is referring to can be found here:
We set a limit for birthday presents and Christmas presents on my side of the family for the adults. I haven’t bought all the Christmas gift ideas listed below, but I have bought many of them.
