It’s truly the thought that counts when you give a gift and, even if you’re on a tight budget, there’s no reason that presents for birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays can’t still be worth a million bucks. Just make sure that whatever you give comes from the heart.
Below are some inexpensive, easy gifts that will show someone how much you care without breaking the bank:
- Baked goods – whether that special someone enjoys cookies, fudge, cupcakes, or banana bread, baked goods are a wonderful way to save money and show someone that you really put some work into their gift.
- Re-gift – if someone has given you a gift in the past and it’s just not the right item for you, spread the love! There’s nothing wrong with handing off a gift that you think someone else would enjoy. Just be sure not to re-gift items that you think the recipient would have to re-gift too!
- Dollar stores – discount dollar stores are great places to find small, moderately priced items. The best part is that, for a few dollars, you can actually get several things. A few picture frames would make a great housewarming present, and the bill won’t come to more than three bucks.
- Bath products – bath products are known for being fairly expensive at shopping malls and retail stores. But what if there were a way to make your own scented bath goodies without having to shell out a lot of cash? By taking inexpensive Epsom salts, unscented body lotion, or mineral oil and adding a few drops of essential oil – try mint, lavender, or orange blossom – you can give a luxurious and aromatic gift.
