    I have my own "christmas club" account at an online bank - I have a certain amount transferred every payday.

    I would add:

Make gifts.
Get together with your family for a gift exchange on New Year's Day ---taking advantage those after-Christmas sales.
Shop all year long for things like books, games, etc.
Look for collectibles at flea markets and garage sales for that collector in your family.
Start a tradition of everyone choosing one name and each person buying one gift instead of dozens.
Or ---as my family did a long time ago ---decide not to exchange gifts outside of your immediate families. (When we did that, my gift budget was cut by about 80%.)

    I have also been saving my spare change and bottle return money. It sure does add up quickly!
