* Gift Cards: Send a gift card directly to the recipient’s inbox in minutes. Plus, through the end of the year, many restaurants and retailers are offering bonus gift cards when you buy a gift card. And there is nothing wrong with giving a gift card, especially when you really don't know what to get someone. It allows them to pick out an item or meal they will actually enjoy. See a list of bonus gift card offers HERE.

* Bottle of Wine: For $6 or less you can pick up a tasty bottle from places like Aldi, Lidl, Trader Joe’s and Wegmans. One of my favorites is the Velada Pink Moscato from Lidl. It's bubbly, refreshing and super affordable!

* Local Craft Beer: Pick up a 6-pack from one of the many local breweries for around $10. If you can't make it to a brewery, many grocery stores in the area have local beers and some grocery stores have entire sections with local brews and wines, including Wegmans.

* Grocery Store Gift Card: This has been a very hard year financially for many families. A $10 grocery store gift card could provide a couple meals to someone on your gift list.

* Local Bakery Treats: Local businesses have suffered during this pandemic and you would be treating 2 people by buying baked goods as gifts from local bakeries - the person you are giving it to and the business you are supporting.

* Netflix or Hulu subscription: Gift someone a month of unlimited movies or TV shows. A basic Netflix membership starts at $8.99/lb and there are Hulu subscriptions starting at $5.99 per month.

* Redbox: You can buy e-Gift Card or Promo Codes for 1-day rentals through their website.

* Craft Kits and Board Games: Five Below has a bunch of different kits and games for only $5 each.

* Homemade Food Gifts: Treats like chocolate bark, fudge, cookies brownies, breads and more are always a fabulous and frugal option! See a ton of Christmas cookie recipes at AllRecipes.com HERE.

* Donate: Give to a cause near and dear to the recipient like the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, a cancer research fund, animal rescue organization, or other charity that means something to the person you are honoring with the donation. Did you know that every $10 you donate in December to the food bank provides 100 meals!

* Your Time: Give someone the gift of your time, whether it's a night of free babysitting, providing a meal once a week during the first month after a friends' baby is born, or offering to mow the grass for a month the couple who just became new parents. Right now, reaching out to a person you know who is sheltering in place during the pandemic and offering to do their grocery shopping would be an amazing gift.

* Gifts from Local Mom-Run Businesses: Every year, WRAL Go Ask Mom offers the Go Ask Mom Made by Mom Gift Guide with a dozen local mom-run businesses. There are lots of lovely gift options including English muffins, tea, handcrafted soaps, high-quality candles and more! See the 2020 Go Ask Mom Made by Mom Gift Guide HERE.
