We have a super tight budget for Christmas this year. $250 for everyone (both sides of the family). I am crocheting scarves for my in-laws that live in cold places and wanted to have my DD and DS make a calendar out of 13 sheets of construction paper and pictures of themselves. Let them decorate the top and then glue an actual printed out calendar out on the bottom 1/2. Is this lame?

I want to spend the bulk on my kids obviously. The $250 includes the shipping budget. :/

ETA: my DD and DS have 7 sets of living grandparents
