I know am answering this late. But I do hope that it will be of help. If not for this year Christmas event then for any holiday along the year. When dealing with budget. Sometimes it might be something difficult to work with. Especially if there is no money to show off. You can buy them things that are not expensive. Or maybe you have something taht you are not using. You can refurnish it and award them again. Let me say like your daughter. You can give her a cloth that maybe she has been eyeing for long. You might not feel a pinch about it. Bu I am sure she will be grateful. Or perhaps some jewelry taht you no longer wear. It feels like killing two birds with one stone. You can do the same to other family members. You cannot miss to have a creative idea that will prevent you from using much money. Which in your case you do not have.
