(NAPSI)—This holiday season, many people are finding ways to save by staying close to home and purchasing gifts that deliver all the comforts of home. With consumer spending down 3.1 percent, people are no longer buying expensive items such as cars and electronics, preferring simpler, more economical gifts and items for their own enjoyment.
Here are a few ideas for affordable gifts that sum up a warm, relaxing day at home—a comfy antidote for holiday madness:
• Make wintry days tastier with a basket of seasonal treats. Fill a small basket with treats such as hot cider spices or hot chocolate mixes. Add popcorn kernels for popping, peppermint candies or gingerbread cookies. Top with a big bow.
• Share a heartwarming story. Books are relatively economical and are an enriching, entertaining gift. Share your favorite reads of the year or find books on a topic that interests the recipient. Curling up with a good book is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon on the couch.
• Celebrate with the cinema of seasons past. DVDs of classic holiday movies can be an inexpensive gift or addition to gift baskets. Watching cheerful seasonal favorites is a fun, affordable way for the whole family to spend time together.
• Help loved ones stay warm and cozy with the gift of comfort. Gifts that help keep your loved ones warm are especially appreciated when the temperature drops. Knit a scarf or sweater.
Or better yet, buy a deliciously soft pair of slippers to pamper the tired feet of those you love.
