Ok so this year ive decided that im only going to spend on xmas what little spare money i have. most xmas,s previous been on the never never which im now sorting out and dont want to get into debt buying tons of presents this year. my parents/sister have told me not too buy them anything but i thought i dont know what they want but can afford a £10 gift voucher for sis/ clothing shop she likes!!! mum and dad / cinema so they can have good night out. do you think this would be ok? dont want to sound cheap but if ive no money as such a little gesture do u think be ok?

Yes this will be fine, its the thought that counts and they sound like thoughtful gifts. Your sis can pick something out she likes and your rents will get a good night out. honestly this sounds fine to me :)

I agree a small gesture to show you have thought is as good as a really expensive present. :)

I agree with the others,as long as some thought has gone into it,that matters more than what price it was.We have sooo many people to buy for at christmas that mostly my budget is around £10-£15 each and I just try to get individual gifts that I think people will appreciate.There are some nice personalised items to be found on the internet which can be nice for family too.

a friend of mine rang me last night. what she does is get 2 plastic storage boxes and buys a gift or 2 a month over the year. then by christmas shes got loads of presents for people but not spent a fortune all at once. going to try that this year
