According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend more than $465 billion this holiday season, with the average family spending $704. If that seems a bit “above average” to you, it may be because many of us are concerned about how the future might influence our jobs, income, savings not to mention emergency fund. But even if you’re short on cash this year, you can always afford to be generous with your time, attention, and most of all, love. Let’s take a look at some of the best holiday gifts available that don’t cost a dime. TIME DOING NOTHING, NADA! Everybody is so busy running around staying busy with something, that sometimes the best gift is nothing. Think back over your life: Haven’t some of the happiest memories been sitting around the house with your friends and family laughing about things that only your group finds funny? (Seinfeld did nothing for 10 years!) So don’t be too quick to dismiss this gift: Time Doing Nothing may be the most rewarding gift of the season.
