There’s nothing quite like a gourmet gift basket stuffed with goodies. Skip packaged baskets to save money. Make your own basket instead! Ideas include summer sausage, smoked salmon, cheese, crackers, nuts, cookies, and chocolate. Buy items individually and put them in whatever container you can find: a flowerpot, a nice bowl, etc. Get creative!

4. A magazine subscription
