Thoughts on Christmas with no money

I'm not going to whine, don't worry, I'm rather used to holidays with very limited funds.

But I am not used to being a grownup with lots of friends and family and not being able to get anyone Christmas gifts. I haven't been buying gifts during the year (something I often have done lately) because I'm so broke, and I just can't see having much (any?) resources free in the next month, or afterwards.

Anyone have idea for alternatives to gifts? Cards are pricey, too. And I am not a crafty person, so making stuff doesn't seem real appealing.

*sigh*

Maybe I should just come to grips with the fact that my awesomeness is gift enough, and let you all know it? ;-)
