The holiday spirit is all about being merry, lounging around with your loved ones and toasting away by a fire with friends.

The only problem? The holiday spirit also tends to involve exchanging gifts. And the price tags on those gifts will definitely be weighing down your wallet before the new year begins.

You’re probably busy trying to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your checklist — like your parents, who made you promise not to get them anything, and your coworker you don’t know that well (may we suggest a monogrammed candle?).
