This may be a bit off topic but I love sharing good ideas. I buy Handmade as often as possible but sometimes it just doesn't work for some of those people on my Christmas list. So, I would rather enjoy shopping online than getting stressed out in the overpopulated malls with bad lighting. In my roaming around, I found a great site that could help save a few bucks and thought I could share it with you.
Check out couponsforeveryone.com They offer coupon codes for a wide range shops and also have a huge list retailers that offer free shipping .
Hope this helps your budget a bit. Also, Etsy is my first choice for finding quality handmade gifts any time of year. Especially when the gifts are for me like the greatest handmade Whipt Pudding hand lotion from bathinginluxury.
