Being one of the most awaited seasons of the year, there are numerous gifts received and given at Christmas time among loved ones, friends and relatives. There are a lot of cheap and affordable Christmas gifts you can buy, and you do not have to burden yourself with expensive gifts that you may not be able to afford. In terms of money, your gift may not cost much, but the time and effort used in finding the ideal present for the recipient is the real worth of the present.

Below are some affordable Christmas presents that can make the season more special. First, you can retrieve old recipes and prepare a special dish, sauce, or bake some cookies and other Christmas goodies that can be enjoyed by the young and old alike. Your kitchen should be stocked with food so that you are likely to find something special to cook for loved ones. This makes for a cheap yet delicious and special Christmas present. Secondly, if you know how to sew or knit, you can make a pullover, cap or any knitted product to present as a cheap but thoughtful Christmas present for a loved one or friend. The input and effort employed in coming up with such a special item will make your gift very special.

If you love to paint or draw, you can come up with a framed picture painted by yourself, or a handmade Christmas card or any handicraft item. The possibilities are endless, as long as you put in your talent and some imagination in making the perfect present. Moving on, you can also buy a plain wine glass, which you can paint using a spray paint, or make patterns in a customized Christmas note for the receiver, with his or her name. Once you enclose it into a nice package, you have an affordable yet personal gift!

You may also use your computer to print out a special Christmas present. For example, you can save a picture of your friends, then print them and have them designed into little buttons, which you may also put in a frame. You may add a personalized Christmas message to make it a great Holiday present. Moreover, in case your friend or relative is a writer, or an executive, you can use a Photoshop program and make a mock magazine cover with his or her picture on it.
