Inexpensive Gift Ideas That Even Your Wallet Will Love!

Whether it’s Christmas or a loved one’s birthday, the pressure is always on to gift your nearest and dearest something they’ll really treasure. While flowers or bath sets and maybe a voucher covers all the bases, if you’re someone who wants their loved one to know how much thought and care has gone into choosing their gift then those options simply won’t cut it.

On the other hand, if you’re someone who’s living on a tight budget at the moment, then you’ve also got the cost to bear in mind. It’s a struggle we go through every year – your loved one deserves the world but your budget dictates that they’re only really getting a pair of socks and a candle. Thankfully, when it comes to gifting on a budget, you have more options than you might think! Read on to discover some inexpensive gift ideas that even your wallet will love.

Photo prints

A digital image on a screen can’t possibly compare to holding a physical photo in your hands, and there’s no better way to share memories than with a selection of special photographs that your loved one can cherish at home. Whether you print off some single prints to place in traditional frames, you opt for a stunning canvas print or you give them the opportunity to create their very own photo wall with, this thoughtful gift is sure to raise a smile on the big day. Plus, it’s incredibly budget-friendly and thoughtful.

A new houseplant

Flowers are wonderful things, they look beautiful and everyone loves to receive them. However, it doesn’t take long for them to fade and turn into potpourri as they slowly dry upon the sideboard. So, with this in mind why not spoil your loved one with a gorgeous new houseplant? They’re lush, green and instantly refresh any room. There are hundreds of different varieties to choose from, including large and small, exotic or traditional and even some that don’t require too much maintenance – perfect for those who aren’t blessed with green fingers. They also have air-purifying qualities and are incredibly budget-friendly!  

A new journal or diary

There’s something very personal about a journal. It’s somewhere to write down your deepest thoughts, your worries, your hopes and your dreams. Or somewhere to write down your shopping list. The versatility of a journal is what makes it incredibly special, team it with some new stationery and write a personal message on the first page and you’ll tick all the gift-giving boxes.

And finally, a new satchel or handbag

Sometimes, it’s the most practical gift that gets the best reception. So, gifting a loved one a beautiful new bag either for work or play will certainly be a welcome addition to their wardrobe. Whether it’s a new weekend bag for all the travelling they like to do, something to use every day or a bag they can carry their laptop around in. You’ll be spoilt for choice and you’ll be in full control of how much you want to spend.
