This year with money being tight.There are lot of people in my family who do not have the money to buy gifts.So this year we are starting a new tradition.We buy a ornament under $10.00 and wrap it and exchange it with other family who has bought ornaments.Then we can add it to our tree and every year we get a new ornament from our family member as a gift from them.
I was surprised how cheap on ornament is.I went to Walmart and found very nice $2 ornaments.So we spent $4 on two ornament one from me and one from my now every year we get two ornaments from other family members we exchanged with.I can not wait to see what ornament I will get from them so I can add it to my tree.
We buy gifts for the kids and exchange ornaments with the adults.

You know you can also exchange things like babysitting, cleaning someones house, mowing their lawn, running errands. Write it on a piece of pretty paper and say " I owe you …" and then wrap it. I think that would be nice too. My husband and I used to do this when we were first married and had no money for gifts on Valentines day. Excep those were a little more sexy. LOL
