What a great tradition to start.... Have family put money in mason jar throughout year. At Christmas time, choose someone to bless (anonymously). On Christmas eve, deliver by Ring and Run. Must read the book "The Christmas Jar" it explains how it all started. I love this story!

Use photos instead of tags on Christmas gifts

...super cute christmas tradition...wrap 24 books & put them under the tree for the kids to choose one each night before Christmas

LOVE THIS! Preserve your child’s Christmas list in an ornament every year. Wish I would have thought of this many years ago

First year of turning a slice of our tree stump into an ornament :)

Absolutely love this idea!!! Buy a dollar store ornament and write down the great memories from the past year with the kids! Do one every year

Money is scarce and times are hard. So Im giving you this instead of a card. Something to use, something to share, so bottoms up, just cause we care. Merry Christmas

love this. My parents always wrapped our xmas presents in newspaper. When they were young and struggling they thought "why spend money on wrapping paper when we can spend it on the presents" Mom always decorates packages with festive yarns. I'll have to take pictures of her packages this year.
