When I say 'C-List,' I don't mean in terms of unimportance. In fact you could argue that shopping for the C-Listers in your life comes with more pressure than shopping for your significant other, parents, or anyone else you are close with.

C-List people are defined as acquaintances or people that you deal with fairly regularly in your life that you want to show some appreciation for around the holiday season.

Some examples of C-List people who might be on your Christmas list include the mailman, your kids' teachers, your cousin's new boyfriend's daughter, your usual sanitation worker ... you get the gist.

Usually, these gifts don't have to exceed $20, but you also want them to be satisfied with what you are giving them.
