Reduce Holiday Stress with Thrifty, Easy to Make Decorations, Gifts and More

9 Free Crafting eBooks Offer Nearly 100 Ideas for a Budget-Friendly Christmas

November 4, 2011 -- Northbrook, IL – Just like eggnog, mistletoe, and Santa himself, there’s one more thing that has come to be equated with the Christmas season: stress.  There’s a lot to do to prepare for the holidays.  From gift shopping to tree decorating to menu planning, it’s enough to send anyone running to the North Pole for some peace and quiet!  And in recent years the added pressure of an unstable economy has only made matters worse.

An annual survey administered by Deloitte found that rising prices of food and fuel are causing roughly 40 percent of consumers to tighten their Christmas budgets this year.  Among other things, consumers said they would be cutting back on store-bought decorations and reducing spending on gifts for friends and family.  In fact, 32.4 percent of people said they would spend less on gifts than they did last year, according to a 2011 survey from BIGresearch.

In an effort to help those who have had to reduce their holiday budgets this year, the editors at Prime Publishing have come together to create nine new Christmas craft eBooks, available for free download on their family of websites.  From homemade Christmas decorations to easy gifts to make for friends and family to festive accessories to wear to holiday parties, this collection of free eBooks offers nearly 100 DIY projects perfect for the Christmas season.

The eBooks are available for free download at the following websites:
