This might use up sometime in your day but it is well worth it.

4. Ask for free gifts
This is one of my favorites because it is the easiest and fastest way to buy free Christmas gifts.
All you have to do is ask. When it’s gift giving season or your birthday and people ask you what you want, you are doing them a favor when you say gift card.
Look, if you are not going to let them know, they will still buy a gift and it might find its place in the garage (never to be ACTUALLY used by you!).
Friends and family spend time thinking about a gift that would mean something to you. And, if you just tell them, they would be happy to buy you that.
So, why not just let them know?
