Spending money is never very fun, and stressing about what to do with the money you are going to spend can be just as stressful. Instead of signing up for misleading credit cards to get a minimal discount at big brand stores, here are a few cost effective solutions. 

First, check out our article: Your Essential Holiday Gift Guide. There are plenty of low cost gifts to help those with big families. 

Now, we mentioned avoiding racking up too much debt on credit cards, but make sure to check if you have points you can exchange for gifts. Also, some credit cards do offer sizable discounts on partner brands, just make sure to pay it off right away to avoid interest charges adding up. 

Also, make sure you shop local. The mom and pop shop down the road will likely have some small gifts that would add an extra air of enchantment to your holiday gift giving. Small items that you can buy a few of would go perfectly for stocking stuffers. 

Even with this, it is also evident that sometimes these shops can be quite expensive. The price of unique items and gifts rise the harder an artist or creator must work to source and supply such creations. 

However, that doesn’t stop you from freely being inspired by them. If you so please, you can gather new inspiration from these shops and then head over to the craft store instead. Gathering supplies that you may need to create the perfect and personalized gift for family and friends is a great way to save money and become fully engaged in the holiday season.

Don’t forget, there’s a value in quality. Grunt Style offers a Beer Guarantee policy for merchandise credit or merchandise swaps. So you can feel confident knowing you're getting the most out of your hard earned dollar.
