Happy Holidays!

happy holidaysHappy Holidays Everyone!

I typically post the Cheap Weekend Fun post on Thursdays, but because Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall on both weekend days this year, there will be no round up or posts leading up to Christmas.

If you are looking for a free thing to do on Christmas Day, Cumberland Farms will be giving away FREE Coffee.

I hope everyone has a very happy holiday season spent with loved ones. I’ll be off for a few days, but will be most likely back before the New Year for some budget-friendly NYE tips in Boston.

Again, Happy Holidays!

Last Minute Gift Ideas on a Budget

Last Minute Gifts on A Budget

Are you looking for some last minute gift ideas, but you don’t want to overspend on gifts? I hear ya.

Here’s a few last minute gift ideas that are super easy and won’t break the bank:

1. Gift Cards

It’s an obvious one, I know, especially since you can purchase eGift Cards around the clock, even on Christmas! However, there’s a lot of great gift card deals happening right now!

  • Amazon is running Gift Card promotions from national retailers, restaurants and more in form. Scroll down to lighting deals to find the best bang for your buck.
  • Many local Boston restaurants and national chains are offering bonuses when you purchase gift cards, so you can receive a little gift for yourself too. Check your favorite restaurant’s website directly to see if they have any deals!

2. Daily Deals

Daily deal sites offer a wide variety of gift ideas from local activities, restaurants, goods, and more. Some purchases can be printed from home which make for an easy last minute gift

3. Give an Experience

Do you have a person in your life that you have absolutely no idea what to get them. Every year my aunts gift my great aunt tickets to a show for January or February. They all get together after the holidays are over, go out to eat and then go to a show together. My great aunt loves this and looks forward to the gift yearly!

Giving an experience is a great gift for someone who has everything or for someone you love to get together with after the hectic holidays are over with!

Even better, you can give a gift of Boston Sports… tickets to the Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and more might go over very well, and can be a good last minute gift idea!

If you have Visa Checkout, you can use promo code VISACHECKOUT at StubHub to save $20 off purchases of $100 or more.

Also, if you have Amazon Prime, you still have until Thursday, December 22, 2016 to get free 2-day shipping on a lot of items! If you have an .edu e-mail, you can also get a free trial of Amazon Student to take advantage of free holiday shipping.

I ran out to Michael’s over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised that a lot of holiday items were already marked on clearance, so keep your eyes peeled for markdowns already at certain stores!

Do you have any tips for last minute (and budget-friendly) holiday gifts?

Did you wait until the last minute to start/finish your Christmas shopping?
