The holiday season is right around the corner, and you may not have gotten all of your gifts that you would like to give yet. If you are short on cash, one step that you can take is to make a gift for your friend or family member. Making a Christmas craft is one way that you can still give a gift without breaking your budget. In most cases, purchasing the items that you need to make something will be less expensive than purchasing the item already made. Also, the recipient of your gift will be happy to receive something that you made. Making a gift rather than purchasing one is more personal as well.
