The holiday season is in full swing and for some people, shopping for gifts can be a challenge. This can be due to a multitude of reasons and one of the most obvious reasons is simple: it can be too expensive.

Christmas on a budget

There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing Christmas on a budget. No matter how extreme the budget or financial constraints might be, at the end of the day, the meaning of the gift counts more than anything.

If you have multiple children and they're young, you may want to take a look at some of the gifts we found that are free.

That's right - FREE.

Now, it's important to note that some of the gifts that we found require a little bit of care and even strength to move them. That being said, we found some pretty amazing gifts in the free section of Boise's Craigslist. These items range from exercise equipment to full-blown outdoor playsets that your little ones would love.

Did we mention that these are all free while they last?

Let's take a look at the top ten gifts we found that you can get for free on Craigslist.

Happy holidays and remember - it's the thought that counts.
