Doesn’t it always feel like it’s somebodies birthday? There’s always somebody I have to buy a gift for! Now, I know I don’t have to buy a gift really. But gift giving is a brilliant way to show somebody what they mean to you. The rule is it must be thoughtful, otherwise giving a gift at all is pointless! I’m here to tell you that you don’t need to break the bank when giving a gift. You can still give a gift while staying well within your budget. Take a look at these ideas to see what you think:
I don’t know a single person in the world who doesn’t love cake. I would love a cake, especially if it was a Disney cake, or another theme that I love. That just goes to show this person gets me and knows what I like! Double brownie points if the cake is homemade and decorated. It shows this person took a lot of time and effort on this gift, which means more than spending a lot of money.
A Salon Treatment
A manicure or pedicure doesn’t cost that much money, and it can leave the receiver feeling like a new woman! You can even find cheaper salon treatments on sites like Groupon and Wowcher, so you can give them a better treatment for a fraction of the price! Just make sure you read reviews of the salon first, and I’ve read about some disasters in the past.
Flowers are gorgeous, so they are a fantastic gift to receive when you’re on a budget. If you can manage to afford a nice vase too, that’s even better! Better still, create your own vase out of an old bottle and spray paint. There’s nothing I love more than a good DIY gift like this! A flower delivery and a nice DIY vase sound like the perfect gift to me.
A picnic will cost you as much as you want to spend on food. Then all you need is a nice blanket and location, and you’re good to go! This sort of gift is good as you’ve taken the time to plan and prepare for this person.
I love settling down at night with a good book, so why not give them a book you think they’ll enjoy? Consider their likes and dislikes and find a book that will suit them down to the ground. It could even be a self help book!
An ornament you feel will look good on their mantelpiece might be right up their street. You can find great vintage ornaments that are unique and affordable these days!
A Personalised Playlist
Completely free but very thoughtful, a personalised playlist is a nice gesture. Fill it with songs that remind you off this person to show them what they mean to you!
