Holiday Gift Guide Vol. 2

Last week, Suzanne brought you

hostess gifts

.  Today, I present gifts for that special friend without breaking the bank.  To me, the images alone appear to be more expensive, but they are all $25 or under!  A "secret Santa" is a great way to get in the holiday spirit as a group without buying for


of your friends.  As much as I would want to do that, it is simply not affordable.  Luckily, there are ways to not spend a lot but still give something personal to your gal pal.  This is the time of year to stop ignoring those

emails you might filter

from daily view, and do some online "window" shopping to see how many budget-friendly options are out there... you'll be surprised!
