LoveToKnow.com has published a comprehensive guide of ten ways to make Christmas merry without spending a fortune. The simple tips included in this guide are aimed at the huge, and growing, population of people who want to enjoy this holiday season without the added stress of financial and commercial influences.
"Clearly the state of the economy has many people re-thinking how they'll spend money this Christmas," said Howard M. Love, Chairman and CEO of LoveToKnow.com. "But perhaps more importantly, we hear from our users that they want to get back to the basics. They want to spend more time with friends and family, and less time in stores. We've taken that to heart and created this list with ideas that will help them do that."
The emphasis of the list is the simple pleasures of the holiday season like decorating, sharing, cooking, enjoying time with friends and family, and thinking about others. As the guide says, "Christmas is not all about spending." LoveToKnow.com is hoping that readers will share these tips with friends and family as a reminder of the holiday spirit.
Among the many tips is advice on getting creative in the kitchen with Christmas candy recipes, and ideas for putting your artistic skills to work by making handmade Christmas ornaments. The expert authors from LoveToKnow.com have also included tips on how to relax during the holidays, and advice for how to contribute time and resources to people in need. There's even a guide to classic Christmas movies for a cozy night on the couch.
"Our goal is to remind people how this can be a time of year for fun, but inexpensive things," said Love. "My own family will be using some of these ideas and we hope we're encouraging others to do the same."
