Large families are wonderful, but purchasing gifts for brothers, sisters, cousins, nieces, nephews and their significant others can put quite a strain on the pocketbook.
Nowadays, many families opt for a “Secret Santa” gift exchange: Each person draws the name of another family member, purchasing  just that one gift. But instead of going to the store and getting something that you ponder about forever or the other person doesn’t really need -our price limit is between $15 and $20 and the theme is food and drink.
My in-laws do a ‘Yankee Swap’ (Chinese grab bag, white elephant) everyone buys a gift worth $10, we draw numbers and then the picking begins.

It’s easy to get caught up in the spending hype during the holidays, but there are only a few people you really want to spoil. Okay, so, maybe your name wasn't drawn from a hat, and you're not planning on partaking in any holiday gifting games. Secret Santa gifts are fun in theory, but visions of boring bags of candy and novelty-scented lip gloss just give us a huge case of the holiday sads.

But these sorts of presents can sometimes be tricky to find, and particularly if you don’t know your recipient that well.

Create your own chocolate bar – for around a fiver, you can have a go at being Willy Wonka and create a bespoke, personalised 120g chocolate bar for a colleague. War on Error erasers – priced at ?5, this squad of six tiny green GIs is perfect for the colleague who often makes mistakes!

You didn’t think you were going to get away with there not being a swap for the time of year dedicated strictly to giving and getting presents (and of course the birth of the eight pound, six ounce newborn Baby Jesus). Ricci is a single 30-something from Arkansas who is a lover of big hair, anything pink, monograms, selfies, fancy coffee, and her dog Sophie. I usually look at my recipient’s Facebook page or Goodreads profile to see what books they have read and enjoyed over the year and then I gift them a book that is similar so I know they will enjoy it.

Each holiday they sit together – each with a gift in hand – to read “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” When the word ‘the” is read, the gifts are passed to the person to the right. Each person would write their name and a couple things they wanted on the list, then each adult picked a name and we kept it a secret until Christmas day. Nowadays most companies advise on a budget of around ?5, and while that doesn’t buy an awful lot, with some thought and preparation it can be enough to cause a giggle or two.
