You don't have to spend tons of money on gifts, especially when you purchase them in advance. Make your gifts extra special with homemade notes, using interesting paper and coloring supplies. Send your loved ones care packages with nice chocolates and cards. Put together homemade gift baskets filled with your loved one's favorite foods. You can buy holiday baskets, that are very reasonably priced, from local grocery stores. Be sure to have enough to share with your family.



With the season of giving comes the time of renting. You can get a great deal on a hotel room. You can also get a great deal on a party rental if you want to hold a Christmas dinner outside of your own home.

Decorations are the last thing you need to spend money on during the holiday season, but you can get them on sale and still have plenty left over. One of the most important parts of decorating the house is lighting. Instead of buying expensive multi-colored light strands, get a set of lights for the tree and decorate your windows with colorful lights and hang mini ornaments on the tree.


Holiday Playlist

You can’t forget about the music! There is nothing like putting on a favorite holiday playlist to make you feel at home. Turn up the tunes and dance to some of your favorite holiday songs. While putting this list together, you may want to add some songs that you like to sing as well, as you might consider doing holiday Karaoke.



There are a few options when it comes to transportation for a holiday event. You could take public transportation or if you have a vehicle then you have the option to drive or carpool. However another great option is deciding to take a ride with a car service. This can actually build more convenience into your evening, as some businesses like All Long Island Car Services are available 24/7 and if you plan on having a few drinks will help ensure your safety and the safety of others on the road. The rates are usually pretty competitive and gives you a brilliant excuse to ride in a luxury vehicle for the night. To book a ride contact them at: 631 655 7044 or click here to request a quote.
