Inexpensive gift ideas for everyone on your list
Everyone knows that holiday shopping can be difficult. Whether you’re a part of a family that’s big, picky, or on a tight budget, getting the best gift can be trying. Here’s a quick list of inexpensive gifts to think about giving to a loved one this holiday season.
Sound. A set of Bluetooth earphones is always a good option. Bluetooth earphones can range from about $15 to over $200, so keep things cheap and search for the best deal with good quality. Any of your friends can use these, especially if they’re frequently on the go.
Scent. The classic candle is always a good choice, especially during the holidays when the seasonal scents range from a cozy gingerbread to a sweet candy cane smell.
Sips. If you know someone who must have a cup of hot tea every day, consider gifting a novelty tea infuser. The designs can be holiday themed, have meaningful quotes on the sides, or be a simple color. It’s a unique gift that won’t empty your wallet.
And where there is a tea drinker, there’s a coffee addict. For the coffee lover, a new mug is always a safe bet, and the creativity is endless. Buy a mug in a store, online, or even decorate a mug yourself! Simply buy a solid-colored coffee mug and use permanent markers to make a pattern and design it however you wish. If you mess up your design, put some rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab to erase. To ensure that the design doesn’t fade after washing, place your creation in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°F.
Even if coffee or tea are not your choice of beverage, a sturdy water bottle is another option. It’s easy to find inexpensive water bottles that will keep drinks cold for hours or even days! If you want to make it a more personal gift, go to a local store to get it engraved with their name or a cute phrase.
Succulents. If you’re loving the DIY activities, consider creating a trendy, DIY succulent display. The first step is to find a cute pot for the succulent or cactus. You can even create your own by following the same steps used to make handmade mug but choose a different container. Most craft stores sell small arrangements for your succulents. It’s fun to add plastic figurines like reindeer, decorative grass, rocks, and everything in between. It’s a chance to be creative and give a handmade gift.
Safety. If DIY isn’t your thing, give the gift of safety! Since many states are now hands-free, give a cell phone mount to a new driver or traveler for GPS purposes. They’ll really appreciate it, and it’ll keep them safe on the roads.
