Spiderwick Chronicles gift set Here’s a way to put a little dent in your holiday shopping. We’re giving away a “Spiderwick Chronicles” gift set — volumes 1-5 of these magical tales about a world filled with elves, goblins and other fantastical creatures. All you have to do to win is click “comments” and tell us, are you doing anything different for the holidays this year? Tightening purse strings, for example, or cutting down your gift list because of the economy? Going the homemade route? We’ll draw a winner’s name Sunday night. (Congrats, by the way, to CB who won last week’s Thanksgiving DVD and book!)

    We are only doing stockings this year but the little ones will be getting stuff from Santa still

    Not doing anything different this year, but I am thinking about doing something different for next year. Everyone buys for everyone in our family and it can get very expensive. I think next year we will draw names and that way we each can get one really nice gift for just one person.

    This year the material largesse will definitely be downplayed.

    We’re making ornaments for the Christmas tree this year (felt partridges and pears), giving felted Christmas ornaments and making home-baked goods and herb-infused oils and vinegars to family and friends instead of store-bought gifts. I will also participate in and “angel tree” for needy children.

    Hi! I think the economy is good and bad. The lessening of gifts in our home shows that quantity is not always necessary (almost always not)! My husband and my family are celebrating Thanksgiving together and thus having one celebration instead of two or more. No hurrying around to
    more than one home! Also, instead of buying more presents for ourselves, we are giving more to the children’s home that our church sponsors. They should not have to do without. Please enter me in your wonderful giveaway drawing. I have a niece that loves this series of books!
    Happy Thanksgiving…..Cindi

    We’re definitely keeping things more tame this holiday. It actually seems to help with my stress levels. I’m having fun being creative with our gift-giving.

    Hey…maybe you should have some posts with suggestions from readers on how to be frugal yet creative. I could use some help in this department! :)

  6. Vicki Wurgler Says:

    we are cutting down this year the adults drew names and put a limit on the spending. less traveling-staying home for the holidays.

  7. Linda F Says:

    I am cutting down on the amount that I will be spending. I’m going to use more coupons and do more comparison price shopping.

  8. Gretchen Says:

    We will not be making a trip to the ancestral home this year. Air fare for a family of three is out of reach, plus the thought of flying cross-country with a two year-old scares the crap out of me.

  9. Deanna H Says:

    We just drew our “Secret Santa” names and put the limit to ten dollars instead of twenty or more. We also give the older kids gifts plus cash, but this year we are giving them just two smaller gifts and then some cash. That’s why we’ll be shopping sales to get the most for our money.

  10. Jeffrey W Says:

    We are trying to spend less money this year. By not traveling to see family. Smaller gifts. etc.

    Would be great to win this. Thanks.

  11. Janelle Says:

    We have a Christmas savings fund and for the first time are trying to use only the money in the fund for all our gift purchases. Thanks.

  12. Noreen Says:

    We are getting gifts for the same amount of people but we are spending a little less on each.

    Thank you for those who voted for my girls if you got an error it is fixed now. I hope you will continue to vote

    We are going to celebrate Christmas after the official date. This will give all of us more time for special deals that are coming. We are going to help the hungry through a church organization and focus on what we have already and what we are grateful for. In spite of much angst, we are trying to focus on the good things that are out there and share too.
