Look for some baskets on sale or clearance. Every week Michaels, AC Moore, and Hobby Lobby has 40% off coupons in the paper which will make for some cheap baskets.
Now, every day there are tons of free samples available online. All you have to do is sign up for them! I create a junk email to do this in case I get a lot of spam. When my free samples come in the mail they go straight to the Christmas baskets! Maybe I am not spending a ton of money on buying my friends and family gifts but I am spending more time on them then going out and just purchasing them a gift card.
Here are some free samples to request:
