The Gift of Batteries: Tie a ribbon and this cute saying onto a pack of batteries to make a practical and frugal Christmas gift.
Twas the night before Christmas and Santa was worried,
he had an emergency, and boy was he flurried.
The power was off, and his flashlight was dead.
He didn’t buy batteries when Mrs. Santa said.
We don’t want you in a similar plight, so we give you batteries to lighten your night.
Merry Christmas to you, may you walk in the light!
A Cup of Christmas Cheer – Give a mug or measuring cup and include a package of soup with this saying:
A Cup of Christmas Cheer
No one can measure up to you

This Christmas gift is sent your way
To wish a full measure of holiday cheer,
May your cup overflow with joy and peace.
