* Line the mantel with glass jars half-full of unwrapped peppermint candies and topped with a small votive candle. These candies can be purchased in large bags very inexpensively at Sam’s Club. Or fill the jars with coffee beans (cheap ones!) and candles. ~ Sheri Berger

* Use gold or red wrapping paper and coordinating wire ribbon to wrap pictures hanging on the wall to look like presents. This makes a stunning presentation. Don’t wrap family portraits, let those be seen. ~ Lori Lauth

* Have a Christmas tree in each of your children’s rooms and let them decorate. ~ Rhonda Ellis

* Plant male and female holly trees in your backyard. This will provide free decorations every year. Snip off small sprays of the leaves / berries and tuck them everywhere: in curtain tiebacks, around chandeliers, on packages of baked goods, and around the base of candles. ~ Sheri Berger

* Add one to two more strands of lights to your tree after you think it’s done.

* Put loose photos of Christmases past into a pretty basket to enjoy. If you scrapbook, have your family Christmas albums out during the season.

* Wrap your children’s bedroom doors as presents with shiny wrapping paper. Stick a big red bow in the center.
