Kids are getting in the season of giving.

The Children’s Christmas Workshop took place Saturday at People Place – where kids could purchase gifts for their loved ones at a price that wouldn’t break their piggy bank.

Gifts ranging in price from five cents to $1 were picked out and then wrapped for kids at the 12th annual event.
