As a broke newly wed, I completely understand the want to give someone an extravagant gift for Christmas (Especially your new mother in law.. am I right?). Follow my Christmas gifting guide on a budget to save you time, money, and traffic.
Hobby Lobby Pro Tip: The store is almost always 40%-50% off. If the item you are needing isn’t, it will be next week. Except the Grapevine Wreaths. For anything that is never on sale, Hobby Lobby always offers a free 40% off coupon on their website!

Wired ribbon sits the best on the wreath. As it holds it position (even through wind).
Wire will attach your ribbon to the wreath.

Lastly, choose a sign. Or don’t. Your choice.
Like I said, the gift that keeps on giving. At the next birthday, they get a new seasonal ribbon. It’s perfect and cheap! You’re going to want ribbon that has a wried edge.

This 12 pack of 32 ounce mason jars is the cheapest out there! Which means, you now have twelve Christmas gifts.

Make yourself a pretty little knot around the top with your gift tag attached.
My personal favorite, yet so unnecessary gift tags. They are customizable and match the jars theme perfectly.
