Will we look rude and cheap if we give this as Christmas gifts?

My husband and I are on a tight budget this year and we’re not going to have much money to spend on Christmas gifts. The only person we are planning on buying a gift for is my 6 year old brother and we were going to give homemade, frosted sugar cookies and homemade chocolate dipped pretzels to everyone else (our parents, grandparents and adult siblings). I saw some pretty Christmas tins at the dollar store to put them in.

Will we look cheap and rude doing this? We really can’t afford to spend much this year.

    I would say no, especially if your family knows about your situation. But I would find some other little things to show that you put effort into the gifts. My mom has a big family and didn’t really want to spend money on everyone so she did a cookie in a jar (has all the dry ingredients) they loved it.

    No you do not if you are on a tight budget. If you were rich or you had money to spend, then you would be rude and cheap.

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The fact that you will be taking your time, making it with love , and doing it togeather with your husband makes it very special. Anyone can buy a gift card because it’s easy but you are giving of yourself. Great ideas!!!!!!!!!

    I am sure if you explain your financial situation to people (especially family) they should understand. If not, tell them they can pay your bills as a Christmas gift to you and your husband!

    I would say that no one will think negatively of you, especially if they know your situation. Just try to give it some personal touches. As tacky and overused as the expression is, it really is the thought that counts. Your loved ones will know that you wish you could do more.

    A container of goodies is a wonderful gift. Your love and attention year round is what matters most!!

    Not at all. Taking time to make a gift for someone means so much more than going into debt.

    No, it is a gift from the heart. It is the thought that counts, and who can turn down cookies? Add some nice ribbon to dress it up and make sure to include a heart felt card!

    I prefer homemade gifts to those that are purchased & I give homemade gifts every year too. A lot of time & energy goes into baking & decorating cookies, and it shows people that you care enough to spend your time on them.
