8 Christmas Gifts That Don’t Cost A Cent!

8 Christmas Gifts That Don’t Cost A Cent!

This has become a yearly tradition for me. I first learned of the ‘8 gifts’ when I worked at BellSouth and they were printed in our company newsletter. Since then I have made it a point to share them every year with anyone and everyone by email, Christmas cards and copies handed out. This year I will have fun sharing then on all my social networks.

Now, I want to offer them FREE for you to share as well. Post one each day on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and anywhere else you can share them. Simply copy and paste from the content below. For each gift I’ve included 3 things: the image, a longer tag line for Facebook, Google+, etc., and a shorter Twitter length tag line. Also feel free to grab and share the entire content of this post on your blog. Enjoy…
