Thinking of a way to touch people's lives without having to battle with many gift ideas that may put your finances under? Then offer a service for free.

3. Pick out cool free parks to go to

If you stay close to federal universities like Obafemi Awolowo University and the University of Ibadan, there is a hack to seeing nice sceneries without paying anything.

4. Target a common need

Most times we get confused about the exact thing to buy to impress our loved ones because we just cannot figure what they may like.

If the one you are trying to surprise is an extended family member or a friend, pick a foodstuff material that fits your budget and buy. It could be yam, rice, or anything. They would appreciate it. Food items are now very sought after.

5. Send the money instead

If travelling to meet your loved ones this Christmas would cost really much, send them half of the transport money instead.

Getting something like a credit alert on your phone, no matter how small, could go a long way to put smiles on someone's face.

Do things you can handle

While there is no limit to how a special one could make a loved one feel, it is necessary to go with plans that do not come with grave financial consequences later.
