Scenario: It’s Christmas, and you have to get gifts but time and money aren’t on your side. To make matters worse the malls are all closing roughly around 7 pm, while other stores are closing as early as 5 pm, due to coronavirus restrictions, what are we supposed to do when working full-time jobs? For those who work from 8 am to 5 pm which doesn’t leave much time to get around the time when Charlotte, North Carolina’s traffic isn’t on your side. If you’re running short on time and money, it’s okay.

Even though Covid-19 is among us, our kids still have their list of gifts they want, but on the other side, they might even want to get us a gift, and money is tight on both ends. What to do? Ask your kids or child to draw you some art. Make a craft with them as a way to bond and explain the perils of money being tight during 2020. What’s the moral of the story? The most effective gifts are sentimental ones. Those kinds of gifts are PRICELESS and TIMELESS, regardless of how much they cost. Try a DIY gift for someone, like tie-dye some favorite clothing, sew some satin pillowcases, or make eatable gifts.
