Holiday gifts

This Christmas, I don’t have much money to spend on my family and friends.  I love giving gifts, so I definitely want to be able to get everyone something while still being able to cover my rent payment.  One great idea is food…everyone loves a good meal or a yummy dessert.  I was watching the food network the other day, and the chef was making a few different types of chocolate candy for her friends.  One was a chocolate truffle rolled in hazelnuts.  I tried making some over the weekend, and they were awesome!  I packed some up in little bags and tied them with pretty ribbon.  For very little, I had a great and thoughtful gift for my friends at school.  For neighbors, it’s sometimes nice to cook dinner and leave it at their front door.  I hope these ideas work as well for you as they’ve worked for me!
