Holiday Gifts

5. Remember it’s the thought that counts

Let’s face it. Your family, friends, and loved ones realize that the work you are doing right now in college is difficult. And adding to your already stressful life is coming up with holiday gift ideas on a shoestring budget.

Be honest and tell them that right now, things are tight.

Guess what? They’ll understand. The fact that you thought of them enough to want to give them a gift will be enough. And if you are lucky enough to be together during the holidays, that should be a gift in of itself.
