Quick, cheap, easy gifts for everyone

Time is running out for finding great gifts in stores. Some of you are still unsure what to get relatives or coworkers for Christmas and will settle for almost anything, as long as the gift is rather inexpensive. Below is a list of cheap and easy gifts to get for anyone!

Money
Giving the gift of money is a very touchy subject; it can be taken very well or, well, not so well. Handing out cold, hard cash is never a good thing to do. Do something simple by going to your local coffee shop or even a Best Buy or Wal-Mart and pick up a couple of gift certificates. But be sure you give a gift certificate to the right people who you know will use them from the store you picked. If, for some reason, the gift card you give doesn’t interest the receiver, inform them about http://www.certificateswap.com/ where you can sell gift cards and get cash!

Another idea, which are very easy to obtain, are lottery tickets. These usually cost $1 and could be worth millions, or nothing at all, but it is the thought that counts, right?

Simple Tool
For a gift that will be used throughout the years to come, buy someone a key-chain tool. These are usually just Swiss Army knives which can come in handy all the time. Find one that has many practicle tools, like a knife, screwdriver, and scissors.

Food
If you have time to bake some goodies, go for it. Nothing tastes better than homemade cookies Christmas morning. If baking is not an option, one could buy chocolates, cookies, cakes, or even an assortment of popcorn. A bow can turn a simple box of chocolates into a beautiful Christmas gift.

    In 1982 the Specialty Coffee Association of America was created by coffee professionals to help set quality standards for the specialty coffee trade.

    Since the 1990’s the growing popularity of the coffee houses and specialty gourmet coffee retailers, have made gourmet coffee one of the fastest growing food services markets in the world. In the United States alone, it nets approximately $8.5 billion a year.
