Sometimes we tend to buy gifts that are not useful.  When buying gifts, think whether this items can be helpful or can be used because it might end up on stocking files or cabinet.  Our kids would love to receive her favorite toy but then think twice, if she happens to have several of them already, i believe it would not wise because it might end up as another clutter in your cabinets.  Instead buy something more practical and important like school things or educational materials. 

Buy eco-friendly gifts
There are many eco-friendly gifts that you can find in the mall or online store.  An organic product is also a nice gift for everyone and at the same time your also helping our environment.

Bake a cake or cookies, cook your specialty dish, knit or sew a dress or something worth keeping.  If you have the skills to do these things, personal gift coming from your own hard work will be a nice treat for your relatives and friends. 

Buy in bulk or use discounted coupons
When buying in bulk, you can save more pesos.  There are many stores that also offer discounted or promo items.  Grab the opportunity to buy when these things are on sale but make sure not to overspend, always stick on your budget.
