Match names and gifts.

Give food or crafts gifts.
Get crafty, or make a gift from the kitchen like jelly or jam that can be made ahead. Pay cash for the supplies to make gifts.

Work early in the year so there is time to complete the gifts so you can enjoy Christmas without owing money.
Carry the Christmas list with you.
Refer to the list often, and when you are shopping, look for a suitable gift for someone on the list. Pay cash for any gift you buy, and buy early. Once you have made a purchase, write the purchase to the side of the person's name so you do not forget you bought their gift already.
Count in the entertainment.
Make plans now for Christmas entertaining. If you plan on having a party at your house, decide now who will be invited and what you will be serving. Estimate a cost based on previous year parties.
Do the same for Christmas dinner. If you have Christmas dinner at your house, make out the menu and estimate the cost.
Accumulate some money to pay cash for gifts.
Save money now for known expenses for Christmas and holiday entertaining and gifts. One of the easy ways to save is to choose a bill like a $5 or a $10. Every time you get one, do not spend it, but save it for Christmas. You will be surprised how much money you can accumulate in just a month or so. This will help you enjoy Christmas without owing money.
Buy ahead.
Buy ahead for Christmas entertaining. You can buy any of the specialty items like nuts, canned foods for special salads, maraschino cherries and chocolate chips when you are grocery shopping. Pay cash. Make an inventory of these items when you come home from the store, and place it with your Christmas list. 
Once Christmas arrives, you will have extra money saved, extra supplies purchased, a plan for entertaining, and can enjoy Christmas without owing money. If you are still in a money crunch, have everyone bring a dish to Christmas dinner. Enjoy the company and make Christmas a social event, not a spending spree.
