- Have a potluck Christmas dinner with extended family. Decide who will host the event and which dish each person/family will contribute to it.
- Splurge on a bottle of wine. There are several great, affordable brands now distributed locally.
- Buy a gift that the entire family can use, such as a phone with features that can record the holiday activities.
- Share digital cards and videos with family members who couldn’t make it to the event, such as those overseas.
- Skype instead of driving around or out to the country.
