I’m wrapping up for the year here at ABQ on the Cheap… and I mean that quite literally. I still have to wrap all my gifts for Mr Cheap! So we’ll be back in the New Year, unless I spot a super special deal in the meantime that I can’t resist sharing.

Thanks to you fantastic readers for hanging out with us here at ABQ on the Cheap, and thanks especially to everyone who took the time to comment or send a message. I love receiving your emails with deal tips or just a few friendly words.

Here are a few last-minute seasonal items, and I wish you and yours a very joyful holiday and a wonderful New Year. After all, the best freebie any of us can have is the love of our friends and family – enjoy!

Don’t forget to download your free holiday music to add sparkle to the Christmas parties, and if you’re struggling with last-minute gifts, check out the e-cards and gift cards post with discounts and free bonus cards, or send free $10 restaurant certificatesas gifts for family and friends to January 1.

Send kids of all ages a free personalized holiday phone call or email from Santa, with details tailored to the recipient. You can also send a message via Google+. It’s quite a lot of fun just to create the message.

You can also track Santa’s progess from the North Pole as he travels around the world, and play holiday games in the Kids’ Countdown Village. I’ve been watching Santa’s progress but he doesn’t start his holiday rounds until December 24. I know the feeling. You can also track Santa in Spanish.

Paula Deen’s Holiday Hosting Guide is a free recipe and holiday eBook with cooking and hosting tips, including edible gifts, table decorations and ornaments to make – plus some that are easy for kids. There’s a lot of good advice and holiday ideas packed in the 36 page PDF, and free recipes include Christmas Morning Casserole, as well as some recipes and ideas more targeted to Thanksgiving, but still relevant for Christmas.

These New Mexico Holiday Free Recipes for tamales, posole, empanadas and biscochitos from the Albuquerque Convention and Visitors Bureau might also come in handy.  The recipes are from Flying Star Cafe, Jane Butel, and other feastly locals.

FELIZ NAVIDAD! We’ll be back with more Albuquerque freebies, discounts, and deals in 2013.
