Finding the right inexpensive Christmas gifts that still show how much you care can be tough. But this list of unique ideas makes it easy!
Remember in the Little House on the Prairie bookswhen Laura receives the inexpensive Christmas gifts of an orange and some candy? One year she even got her very own tin cup to use!

Remember the days of the blue light special? Back then everyone seemed to use layaway programs to help them afford Christmas gifts. Over time, more people began to use credit cards instead of dealing with the hassle of layaway programs.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that the best layaway program I’ve found is at Walmart. They will set you up with a program with no extra fees. That’s much better than what your average credit card company will do for you!
