While Santa might have Christmas gift-giving down to a science, finding the right balance between budget and bang does not always come as easily to everyone else. Collecting your children’s Christmas wish list only to find it filled with iPads, laptops and DVD players can make even the most seasoned parent feel weak at the thought of costs. Fortunately, Santa shared a few of his wallet-friendly gift ideas so that parents, grandparents and loved ones can still find the presents that will be sure to win those beloved Christmas morning smiles!

Creating a specially designed movie basket complete with snacks, treats and drinks is a Christmas gift option that will entertain the entire family. While families with younger children might enjoy putting together a collection that can be shared as a group, those with older kids might choose to create a unique basket for each child. Make sure to add each person’s favorite candy, popcorn flavor and beverage so that everyone has fun munchies to enjoy throughout the show. Disney has a movie selection that covers children, teens and adults so you’ll be able to find the perfect options for each member of your family!
